The Friday Night Swing Dance Club has been teaching Baltimore the basics of most partner dances for over 27 years. We offer the best combination of experienced instructors, price, location, Superior Floor and friendly atmosphere. We emphasize Fun. Your Class is the only class in a big, beautiful ballroom where you can hear the music and the instructor without being distracted by many concurrent classes and posts on the floor.
Remember to Practice: We host fantastic Dances, always with bands, Every Friday night (Only $15 Yes, Live Music). All dances and classes are held in the American Legion Towson big, beautiful, air conditioned, wood floor ballroom, where you can hone your skills and meet other friendly and helpful dancers and Just Have FUN.
The dance Classes this week are, as always, very important to the existence of the Friday Night Swing Dance Club. No New people in dance classes..Net result, fewer and fewer people coming to Friday Dances. The End of 27 years of dancing. So, We are Looking forward to seeing you all in April Dance Classes This Week and See You This Friday May 4, It’s “4 on the Floor with Overdrive”
Thank You for Your Attendance at Friday Dances and at the April Dance Classes. This is What keeps The Friday Night Swing Dance Club Dancing.
See you dancing,
