April and May Performance Class Series at 9:20 Special:

J&B are so honored to be asked to choreograph and teach another performance class for the 9:20 Special Open House. The class will be 2 months long. This routine will be performed at the 9:20 Special Open House which is on May 31st. In this series, they will teach a super fun routine filled with moves that are also lead-able on the social dance floor. This is a great opportunity to learn some new moves and choreography and have the chance to perform it. If you don’t feel 100% comfortable performing, you are still more than welcome to take the class. You are NOT obligated to perform if you do not wish. They will for sure have you performance ready though, so hopefully everyone will get to experience the rush of performing for an audience.

When: 8 week series – each Thursday from April 5 and May 24th.

Time: 8:30-9:30pm

Performance will be at the Open House on May 31st

If you have any questions, please feel free to email them to jeanandbromley@gmail.com.
