Three Things!

three things

1. At 9 p.m. on our usual gig night, Jeff and Nina will present their advanced workshop "Princely Moves and Vintage Classics." It takes us back to 1999 and delves into the hottest moves when the pair started dancing. They may be old, but they can still impress – the dance moves, not Jeff and Nina, of course. BYO purple rain.

2. We'll be hosting Aris Allen Shoe Shop. If you need some new dancing shoes, bring some extra dough and drop us a line to make sure they bring your size.

3. We are politely commandeering the local CUA night life with our own form of high on Thursday at the Dew Drop Inn. We'll teach some basic moves and then basically just dance. Come join us at 9 p.m.!
