Introduction to Swing and Beginner/Intermediate Swing Dance Classes Starting Soon

POTTSTOWN, PA -- Swing Kat Entertainment announces a new session of swing dance classes will begin the week of March 20th. Introduction to Swing, with five-week and ten-week options, is open to adults and teens who have never danced before. During the full session, students will learn the essential moves and techniques to be a solid beginner level swing dancer. Classes will be offered in Pottstown, Reading, West Chester, Lansdale and Allentown and are just $75 for the five-week option and $110 for the ten-week option.

A ten-week Beginner/Intermediate Swing (‘50s Jitterbug) class will also be offered in all five locations. This class will build on the moves taught in the intro class, adding variations and style specific movements to the swing basics. The cost for this session is $120.

Class days and times vary by location. Visit swingkat.com for details and registration.

A new ten-week Practice Session is being offered on Thursdays in Pottstown only. Students from all Swing Kat locations who have previously taken ‘20s Charleston are encouraged to attend this session. An instructor and several advanced students will be on hand to help attendees work out their specific trouble spots and practice the many steps covered in the Charleston class.

“Swing Kat is excited to offer this new Practice Session,” said Swing Kat owner Faryl Codispoti. “While social dances are a fun opportunity for students to practice their dancing, our new Practice Session will offer a focus on our most recent beginner/intermediate class and provide opportunities for students to get one-on-one help with the steps that they find most difficult.”

Faryl Codispoti and Swing Kat Entertainment have offered swing dance classes for over 10 years. Swing Kat’s main location, The Ballroom on High in Pottstown, is the site for twice-monthly dances featuring live bands. The next dance with a live band is Saturday, March 18th, when Anna Cecilia and the Big Time will take the stage to present swingin’ tunes and soulful blues for the crowd. A beginner lesson will be taught starting at 7 p.m. and the band takes the stage at 8 p.m. Admission is $15 ($10 for students with ID), payable at the door. Most Fridays, Swing Kat holds DJ dances either in Pottstown or at the Lansdale location. A beginner lesson is taught at 7:30 p.m. and dancing begins at 8 p.m. Admission is $12 ($7 for students with ID). The Stompin’ Swing Out at Club 212 in Phoenixville is held the third Wednesday of the month. Admission is just $5 for this weeknight DJ event.
