Latest News and Information

Updated: May 8, 2016

May's Highlights:  West Coast Swing with Maren Oslac at our Wednesday Lessons and at our Cinco de Mayo (1st Friday) dance, and Randy Slone teaching Two-Step at our May Flowers Dance.   Details below.

Please Note:  For our Wednesday Lesson regulars, May is our last month of Wednesday Lessons before they go on Summer Vacation (June through August).  So, if you're one of those in lesson starvation by the time September gets here, get your fill this month with Maren's feast of West Coast Swing that she has planned.

May 2016 Schedule 

Wednesday Lessons:

May 4, 11, 18, and 25
West Coast Swing with Maren Oslac
Beginner/Novice Lesson 7:30 - 8:25 pm
Intermediate Lesson 8:35 - 9:30 pm

If you think that Swing 'n' Country's instructor staff comprises only Country and Swing Dance Instructors, Maren Oslec is our instructor to dispel that rumor. Maren is one of our most versatile and talented teachers having a wide scope of dance training.  So even when Maren is teaching one of our core dances as she is this month, expect some serious spice in her WCS lessons pulled from her very large bag of tricks learned from various dance genres. Your WCS will never look the same after this month.
