Lansdale Swing Dance Classes
Lansdale Swing Dance Classes are coming to North Penn YMCA’s Lansdale Area Family YMCA this fall! For many years the Y in Lansdale has hosted ballroom style dance lessons through the Ballroom, Latin & Swing Dance Center run by Vivian Beiswenger. Vivian a long time associate and friend of mine called me this past spring to let me know she was letting the program go. This would mean that many ballroom dancers would be left without an outlet for learning dance in the Lansdale area. She didn’t want this and thought that if anyone could pull off holding the program together it would be me.
Like I said the Y in Lansdale has been the home of ballroom style dance lessons. So having Lansdale swing dance classes will be something new added to the mix. In the ballroom styles of dance you have East Coast Swing and West Coast Swing, however these are not the styles we handle in Vintage swing dancing. Our styles include Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, Balboa, Charleston and Collegiate Shag. So Lansdale swing dance classes will be something totally new for the dancers of the Lansdale area. Our Lansdale swing dance classes will take place on Tuesday evenings. Be sure to keep your eyes open as we start to post these classes and give details!
We have the ballroom style dance lessons covered as well through Lynn Kettenburg of Victory Fitness & Dance Center Inc. in Emmaus PA. Lynn has agreed to run Monday evening ballroom dance lessons for the Lansdale Area Family YMCA. This is great news as the dancers that currently support the Y’s dance lessons are ballroom dancers. This should help us get Lynn’s lessons off the ground quickly!
