Vintage Dance Classes @ South Jordan Community Center
Jan 16 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Solving your dilemma of being born in the wrong century with the dancing and dress of classic eras past!

1st & 3rd Wednesday, January – June from 8 pm to 9:30 pm.
Community Center Auditorium, 10778 S. Redwood Rd.
Classes are $7.50 for non-society members and $5.00 for society members.

Register online at http://register.sjc.utah.gov.

Wear? No special clothes are needed for the classes. Just wear your modern casual clothes and some comfortable flat shoes.

What? You do not need to have any previous dance experience. If you can walk, count and turn about, you can vintage dance. Vintage dances are group dances, so you aren’t left alone on the dance floor. Kimberli teaches each dance before the music is played and prompts your steps while you are dancing to the music.

Who? Anyone 14 and older, unless previous permission has been granted for younger people. You don’t need to bring a partner, although it is more enjoyable if you do.
