COVID-19 PROTOCOL FOR ALL DANCE CLASSES: Dance classes are face-to-face. You must sign up with your own partner. Wear a mask. The ballroom will be divided into cubes with each partnership dancing in their own cube. Each class will be limited to 8-12 people. All dance classes will be held at The Centralia Grand Ballroom, 202 Centralia College Blvd, Centralia, WA 98531.  

Swing Dance

Learn the East Coast Swing, starting with the basics and moving on to advanced steps and rhythm changes. You will learn to lead and follow various partners with emphasis on timing and styling. Find out when to use single time versus triple time swing and move easily between the two. Learn to do multiple spins and some trick steps. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes that allow your feet to spin full turn (leather or smooth soles) – preferably not tennis shoes. Classes held at the Centralia Grand Ballroom.
