$55 for Eight-week Beginner Swing-Dance Course ($110 Value)

Each week, experienced instructors lead students of all ages through six-count, eight-count, jitterbug, and lindy hop swing-dance steps during one-hour sessions. Paired with a rotating selection of partners, students learn and practice approximately one new move each week, focusing on leading and following in lieu of choreographed routines.

After classes, students can attend live music and DJ dance events throughout the week, where they have the opportunity to perfect moves with fellow students rather than inanimate coat racks that prefer the waltz. Click here for the class schedule.

Gottaswing

When Debra Sternberg first caught sight of Tom Koerner at the Doc Scantlin dance in 1987, she was smitten by his enthusiastic jitterbug. Though the duo's subsequent amorous relationship lasted only a year, their swing-dance partnership has lasted for decades. Together, they have jitterbugged and lindy hopped into the top spots in contests that include the 1994 UK Lindy Hop Championships, the 1998 Virginia State Open, and the 2010 National Living Legends of Swing Award.

Today, Tom and Debra pass on their expertise and passion at Gottaswing, their dance school that has expanded into eight locations throughout the United States. Each week, more than 500 students lay the six- and eight-count foundations for the jitterbug and lindy hop. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced classes meet six nights a week at various studios and dance clubs throughout the DC area, each equipped with a dance floor where students and a woman who looks suspiciously like Amelia Earhart can let loose . Four nights a week, the school invites students to join fellow classmates at events to dance along with DJ-curated tunes and live music.
