No Dances during UCF Winter Break!
Thank you to all who attended our Winter Formal! Everyone danced very and well and looked fantastic! We will see you on a Friday, January 4th for our FIRST SWING DANCE of 2013!
Our home is the UCF Ferrell Commons Auditorium. Our dances, $5 each, feature a $1 beginner lesson from 8:30-9:00 pm prior to the dance, while the dancing itself continues from 9pm until midnight. Swing, Lindy Hop, Charleston and Balboa is enthusiastically danced, as dj’d vintage swing music fills the room. Everyone, student or not, is welcome, so come on out for an evening of fun!

Lessons will start up again on Monday, January 14, and will consistently be on Mondays throughout the entire 2013 Spring Semester.
From 7pm to 8pm anyone can join our progressive beginner lessons, followed by an hour-long intermediate lesson, and ending with a fun, informative club meeting. Lessons are taught by national champions Joel and Lenka Green of Jammin’Swing.
Our lessons are not just for UCF students – they are open to everyone!
