    Tuesdays - Downstairs
    December 18, 2018 6:30 - 7:30pm
    Switcheroo: From Lead to Follow and Back...
    Are you a follower who is interested in leading? Are you a leader who is interested in following? What if you could learn to switch from one to the other in the same dance? Whether you already are learning both, or are curious to learn the role you don't usually dance, come discover how much fun you can have when you switch it up. Betsy and Lola will show you how easy and fun it is to move from follow to lead to follow during the dance. You can give the lead away. You can both decide to trade voluntarily. AND you'll find out how much fun you can have by "stealing the lead"!

    Pre-requisite: Confidence with the basic footwork, in closed and open partner position. An understanding of 6 and 8 count rhythms. No Partner necessary.
