Firehouse Schedule for tonight, Thurs. May 25th:

7-8p: Final Charleston Rueda Class of the series
8-9p: Beginner's Swing Out Intensive (Drop-ins welcome)
9-10p: DJ Roheven

Plus another "Name that 80's Group" giveaway at 11p!

Tonight marks the 8th and final class of the extended Charleston Rueda workshop at the Firehouse. All the remaining students plus some of the Rueda team will be demo-ing the dance at 9:45p, so come early to cheer on your friends (you are bound to know someone in the group). I can't wait to see how a large group of people doing the Rueda will look!

Also, from 8-9p, we will be concluding our 2-week Beginner's Swing Out Intensive. If you haven't danced Lindy in awhile, and are looking to get back "into the swing of things", tonight's class is the perfect refresher course for you. Come join us for the class at 8p and stay...
