Sacramento, CA, January 11, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The Capital Swing Convention honors the California State Dance of West Coast Swing. West Coast Swing has its roots in the vernacular dance, Lindy Hop; it is a slotted dance characterized by a distinctive elastic look that results from its unique partner connection and opportunities for freestyling. Professional West Coast Swing dancers have come from around the country to teach one-of-a-kind classes and workshops. Every night is filled with competitions and free time to dance and meet hundreds of new people.
Even if you have two left feet, the Capital Swing Convention has a class for you: The free beginner’s lessons are designed to help first-timers get out on the dance floor and are open to everyone. On Thursday, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., is a three hour comprehensive beginner’s series. On Sunday, from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m., is a basics only hour beginner’s lesson.
No need to bring a partner, just bring enthusiasm!
