AFFORDABLE PRIVATE DANCE LESSONS!
East Coast Swing, Lindy Hop,
Charleston, and Balboa Lessons
We teach swing dance lessons privately in our home. We specialize in East Coast Swing, Lindy Hop, Lindy Charleston and Balboa. Because we want to develop a swing dance community in Summit County, we offer lessons at an incredibly low price—only $25 per hour for a couple. We teach at your pace, not ours. Got 2 left feet? We’ve had some success with people who said they had never danced. If you can walk and tap your feet to the music, you can swing dance. Contact us by email at email@example.com.
