Learn the simple, elegant social dances of the 1920s & '30s. Beginners are welcome and the basic style is very beginner-friendly. More advanced dancers can add historical flavor to their styling.

This class will help you prepare for the Avalon Ball in May, or any other Jazz Age dance event.

Walter Nelson, the producer of the Avalon Ball will be your instructor, and clips from old movies, showing how it was actually done, will precede the "hands-on" instruction.

You are encouraged, but not required, to wear comfortable "vintage" style attire. No partner required.

The cost is $20, payable at the door.

Instruction will focus on the Fox Trot, the most popular dance in the galaxy during the era, as it was danced in the Jazz Age (simpler and less structured than the modern Foxtrot). If time permits, the Tango and Waltz will also be addressed.
