Next month, Beth’s progressive series, Spins and Turns! Make sure to attend the first class, you will need to be there to come to the second!

Tuesday LaB – March 24th

**For now we are still going to be at the Ethical Society Building for Tuesday LaB. When that changes, we will post here on the website, and on Facebook. Stay tuned!**

Here’s what’s happening this Tuesday night…

8pm Main Floor: A novice Lindy lesson with Brian. This week it will be about 8-count Lindy. Novice lessons are drop-in friendly, so they are a great place to start if you’re new to the dance. The first half hour of the social dance will have mostly Lindy music so you can practice what you learned right away (but we hope you stay for the whole dance, and also come back next week).

8pm Upstairs: This month the series is: “Mosaic Dancing” with Ashley — This series is all about breaking the things we thought we needed, and putting them back together in new and beautiful ways we had only dreamed of before! Prepare to question the things you took for granted about dance, and to push past your boundaries and habits into a world of creativity and new ideas. This series will be on topics equally applicable to lindy and blues, so come prepared for anything and then some!

9pm -12am: Social dancing on the main floor with Chris 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!
