Lindy Hop & Swing Classes: April-May 2015 Session

The first session of 2015 has been the most challenging session ever for holding and attending classes! Monday classes were cancelled 4 weeks in a row due to the major snowstorms, requiring adding on make-up days. In addition, we’ve had to modify our schedule through the spring and will be doing two 5 week sessions instead of the usual 6 weeks.
