SWING DANCE NIGHTS!
You will not find another class like this in town. Kat teaches with a unique fun and fundamentals first approach. Swing dance is joyous at its core and it creates an opportunity to connect to other people in one of the best ways, through action not words. You can travel and dance with people even when you don't speak the same language, you can get out of the house more often, you can MOVE your body because it feels good.
Give yourself a gift and commit to a series. You can't knock it until you try it ten times. This will be a progressive series so you have to come at or near to the beginning. Drop ins are welcome once you've taken the series once!
No partner necessary. It is SWING after all.
Available for Private Lessons
or Group Lessons at your Party

THE MYRTLE FAMILY BAND
The Myrtle Family Band engage and delight audiences of all ages with their porch stompin’, wash-tub bass bouncing jug-time traditionalish jazz, their twinkling-tap numbers and their on-stage family dynamic-antics!
Through their songs and shenanigans the Myrtle Family play with a yearning for a simpler time, the value of a good porch and connection with family and community. Though they are earnest, endearing and not always explicit; their songs and banter often refer to adult subject matter such as booze, stealing and sex. (Just saying.)
The Myrtles come with a variety of characters who are available to host stages, conduct interactive audience ice-breakers, and facilitate workshops from tap and swing dancing, clowning and improv and/or individual dance/clown pieces for collaborative cabarets.
