Union Foundations: November 10

Class: Love the One you’re with
Instructors: Mike Legenthal & Dan Legenthal
Having a great dance often comes down to the right mindset and the right tools for the job. There are all sorts of reasons that we have sub-par dances, but so many of them are fixable: getting stuck in your own head, struggling with disparate skill levels, having different dance backgrounds, and more. In this class, we’ll explore how to find the joyous things about the person you’re dancing with, and how to give them the best version of yourself as well.

7:30-8:30pm – class
8:30-10:00pm – social, practice class stuff if you want too

Sliding scale $10-25, admission covers the whole night. No one turned away due to lack of funds.
