These "Spins & Turns" workshops will improve your ability to spin and turn in one day.

The second class will give full application of your new technique in context of partner dancing.
7:30pm - Spins & Turns Fundamentals
Having trouble with your spins? This workshop will address methods & techniques for making your spins & turns easier, more comfortable and better looking. We'll start with simple methods to get you "on your leg" then we'll show you how to use your arms for centering. We'll explain and get you doing one-footed turns and two-footed turns. You'll be a better dancer after this class. This is for both leaders and followers, and for all forms of dance.
