Dance Away the Winter Blues!

Note: This class is open to students AND parents of Mid-Metro Academy. Gap year students and other adults may also enroll if they are MMA members.

Take your East Coast Swing dancing skills to the next level with MMA's dance instructor, Dr. Joey Ray!

East Coast Swing is a happy, fun, upbeat dance. Distinguished by its bounce, rock step (back break), swing hip motion, and triple steps, East Coast Swing is a circular dance, performed more or less in place without traveling around the dance floor. This class builds on what students learned in East Coast Swing 1, adding more advanced patterns and moves.

In addition to teaching the patterns of these dance forms, Dr. Ray emphasizes connecting with your partner, dance etiquette, and having fun. Dr. Ray has a passion for ministry, Jesus, and relationships, so he gently weaves those topics into each dance lesson. You'll be able to use this skill in social settings for the rest of your life. What a great way to get some exercise and have some fun! 

There will be an optional field trip--community dancing experience--at the end of the semester. This class is pass/fail. No grades will be issued, and no homework is required, although practicing at home between classes is recommended. 

Monday, 4th Period (2:00 – 3:30)
