DanceView-Westie Swing

DanceView By Chris Murphy

Does this happen to you? You go to a fun bar or concert and you see people dancing it up to some swing jazz or flipping it up to some Rockabilly and say to yourself, “I wish I could do that!” Well time goes by and you go to another place and you see it again and you say “I wish I could do that!” What did you do then? Now is the time to make a change! Now is the time to get those skills that will make you the king and queen of the dance floor where you can be swingin’ to just about any beat and you can dress up and celebrate your rockabilly, country and western roots. This is serious fun and the “Western Swing” is a dance that is easy to learn.

Our friend Big Earl is bringing some serious dancing culture to our area at Hero’s. You can go back in time to when life was simple and people went to community dances and everyone was hanging out and having a ball swingin’ to Maddox Brothers & Rose at the local honky tonk. So forget watching “Dancing with the Stars” and “So You Think You Can Dance” and get out there on the dance floor and swing your partner, you can lead or you can follow, but most importantly, enjoy the moves and enjoy your new skills.

Westie Night at Hero’s Sunday April 7th & 21st West Coast Swing Dance Lessons and Community Dance 4 to 7:30 $5 for lesson & $5 for dance
