FREE Vintage Dance Classes @ South Jordan Community Center
Jan 8 @ 8:00 pm – Apr 1 @ 9:30 pm

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

1st Wednesday of every month from 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm. South Jordan Community Center, 10778 S. Redwood Rd. 84095

**Date exceptions – October 16 and January 8**

Classes are FREE and open to the public!

What do I 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.
