TUESDAY JITTERBUGS CLASS SCHEDULE
From 8.00 pm Essential Jitterbug, suitable for beginners.
From 9.00 pm Improvers Jitterbug, once you feel ready.
Take your social dancing to a higher level of fun.
Jitterbug is playful and varied, suited to a range of retro music and even some modern tunes. We incorporate Charleston, East Coast Swing, etc within this class.
With plenty of practice time there is no pressure. Raise your fun level by making new friends while getting fitter dancing to cool tunes.
Jitterbug Essentials sessions are perfect for beginnners and include reminders from previous weeks, building your confidence.
Partner dances generally have a "Leader" and a "Follower". We typically have more applications for the Follower role which means we need to seek a reasonable balance in each class. Some class members learn both roles. NOTE It is an advantage for the Leader to be at least as tall as the Follower.
Come with or without a partner.
COUPLES can chose if they want to remain together in the class or spend some time practicing with the other dancers.
