It ain’t what you do, it’s the way that you do it. We’ll play with rhythm and movement as we learn a fun routine originally created by tap dancers in the 1920s. We’ll learn a version known by swing dancers around the world. No previous dance experience (or special shoes) needed! We’ll be dancing solo, so no partner needed.
