They have music for all the popular dance styles including waltz, foxtrot, cha cha, rumba, west coast and many others. You don't want to miss this exciting dance duo! The dancing starts at 7:30 PM.

Prior to the dance Jim and Tames Alan will be teaching a FREE EAST COAST SWING LESSON! East coast swing is a very fun, easy to learn, high energy dance. It includes, among other things, lots of turns and wraps. Don't worry if you have never done east coast swing before.Tames & Jim Jim and Tames will start with the basics so you don't need any experience. And don't worry about bringing a partner. They rotate partners during the lesson so everyone gets to dance. The lesson (which is FREE) starts at 6:30 PM.
