Hoofers need no prior experience to participate in ballroom veteran Susan Strahosky’s friendly and informal classes, which lead a diverse group of students though the distinctive, elastic movements of West Coast swing. The 45-minute basics class encourages participants to dance with each other, giving students the opportunity to make new friends and surreptitiously stick post-it notes on everyone's back. Afterward, dancers can munch on provided snacks while watching the advanced swing students perform dapper improvisations during the follow-up Beyond Basics class. From 8 p.m. to 10:15 p.m., open dancing gives participants a chance to perfect newly minted skills while benefiting from more experienced dancers’ advice on how to step through a hole in the universe.
