Valley Swing Dance Club Weekly Dance Night
| JOIN US ! ... COME DANCE WITH US. |
If your looking for a fun and easy way to get some exercise, get out of the house or just to meet NEW people, West Coast Swing dancing with the Valley Swing Dance Club is the way to go. Are You tired of sitting around the house with your significant other, arguing about the remote ... or maybe new to the area ... Need some exercise ... Work to much or maybe just need to re-enter the singles social scene in a friendly environment etc. ... try West Coast Swing dancing.
Its FUN, SAFE and GREAT EXERCISE and most of all cost less than a movie (You do not need to be a member to participate.) We get a good turnout throughout the night with great people of all races, Religions, Ethnic Backgrounds and All Ages (average age is thirty something's with some older and younger.)
If you already dance 'West Coast Swing' you will have a good time with other people who enjoy dancing West Coast Swing as well in the San Fernando Valley (Southern California) and surrounding areas as well as other dances like Hustle, NC2S, Salsa an more. We get a great mix of dancers from young to old and from Beginning to Champion Dancers alike.
Plus the earlier intermediate and up dance lesson at 8:30 can give you a new step or three. So what are you waiting for ... come dance with us. V.S.D.C. Membership is never required but joining can save you $$$.
|"The hardest part about learning how to dance is showing up"... SO SHOW UP!
If your new you probably feel like you have two left feet, maybe un-coordinated and don't want to look silly or feel stupid in front of other
people. You may even feel you can't do it cause you have never danced before and everyone else knows how. If that's the only reason you are
holding back ... 'forget-about-it' ... as this is a very common feeling with 'ALL' who take up dancing and no one will be judging you while you are learning, as they are to busy feeling just like you (you may even learn how to laugh at yourself from time to time).
If you can walk, count to eight and want to do something else besides watch TV or search the Net you can learn to SOCIAL DANCE. But, be prepared ... the first week is fun, but can be a little scary, confusing and intimidating your very first time ... so relax and just have some fun and don't take it so seriously, we'll do that for you. So let us worry about your progress!. It is Exhilarating, Fun and Good Exercise. Plus it makes the people at work think you "HAVE A LIFE" (wink ;) ...
(Average learning time is around four Wednesdays to feel comfortable about dancing after the class.)
