Tuesday LaB – July 29th

Happy Tuesday dancing! Here’s what’s happening this Tuesday night…

8pm Main Floor: Since it is the 5th Tuesday of a month the novice lesson is a wildcard mystery this week. Allison will be teaching. Novice lessons are always drop-in friendly, and we hope you’ll join us!

8pm Upstairs: This week we are having a town hall meeting upstairs instead of a topics lesson. If you have any questions about how LaB works, or want to give feedback, or have ideas about stuff you’d like to see happen with LaBor just want to come and hang out with the organizers and other LaB folks, this is your chance! I’ve also heard rumors that there might be ice-cream or some sort of sugary dessert.

9pm -12am: Social Dancing on the main floor! Mike Ghidiu and Tara will be DJing.

Tuesday LaB nights cost $7 to attend (that includes both the dance and the lesson). No partner is required. We do not allow anyone to join lessons more than 15 minutes after their scheduled start time, so make sure to arrive on time!

Tuesday LaB dances and classes are held in the Ethical Society building on Rittenhouse Square (1906 S Rittenhouse Square). Hope to see you there!
