We had a great time last Saturday on the beginners’ 4 hour swing class. We loved our teachers, Robyn and Sandy, with their inspirational dancing, gentle positivity and humorous names for moves. We were totally exhausted (and slightly hobbling) by the end but had a fantastic time. Thank you Robyn and Sandy, you were the perfect teachers.
