Swing and tango dance classes begin at MSA

SAXTONS RIVER — Dancers of all levels are invited to pivot into autumn with swing and tango dance lessons with Matt Peake and Friends at Main Street Arts. The lessons will be held on Thursday evenings from Sept. 7 to Oct. 12, starting at 6:30 p.m.

"Because the interest continues to be high for swing dancing and tango dancing," says Peake in a news release, "(we) will be offering another series of back-to-back lessons." They will use a format of a short lesson to begin each hour of dance.

This will be a mixed-levels series. Those with no swing or tango experience will meet from 6:30 to 7 p.m. to learn some basics ahead of the lesson. Likewise, for tango, the lesson will begin at 8 p.m. Those who want to stay longer can help catch up new tango dancers from 9 p.m. to whenever.

The cost is $5 for one lesson, $10 for two. No experience is necessary and a partner is not required. Bring dance shoes or wear clean shoes you can pivot in.

For more information or questions, contact MSA at 802-869-2960 or [email protected].
