Four Week Beginners Course

Do you want to get a solid grounding in the basics? Or take some time to really work on your form? Megan Downes will teach a four-week course geared to beginners, but all are welcome to attend. Regular practice is the key to improvement. You’ll come away from this course with a set of exercises you can do at home without annoying your neighbors. In class there will be lots of drills to get your muscles used to the movements of flatfooting. And, of course, great music and nice people to dance with!

Take all four classes for a flat rate of only $50, or attend single classes at the drop-in rate of $15 per class.

Classes will not be cancelled this week. As long as the subways are running, Chelsea Studios will be open and City Stompers classes will go on as scheduled.

Only a shutdown of the whole MTA system would cause the studios to close. Service disruptions of individual lines will not cause class to be cancelled.

Friday, January 24th from 7:00 to 9:00 pm — Open class with Megan Downes
