What is Swing? / Do I have to rotate partners?

We advocate rotating in our beginner classes, because it is a helpful learning tool, and because it helps to establish and nurture a community of positive students sharing in a group learning environment. 

We have run classes in the past that offer the option to stay with one partner, but we found that students did not learn as well, and those students who chose not to rotate were less likely to come out dancing and join our social dance scene. Our priority is a community of Swing dancers who mix, mingle, and participate in a joyful dance scene.

If you are willing to take a chance, we bet you will enjoy the classes in rotation, and will find that each of you (you and your partner) are better dancers than when you rotated away from each other!
