Gender-Inclusive Swing Dancing Classes in Seattle

Beloved Lindymakers,

After much deliberation, we have decided to discontinue classes for the time being. The obligations of motherhood, work, and life are too much at the moment and we haven't been able to give these classes the time they deserve.

We both are committed to a better future in the dance world -- we are excited to see classes like ours popping up in more and more cities. Heterosexism runs deep in the dance world but we believe that can change! In fact, the fantastic Max Kepler is teaching open role classes in this very city. For more information on that, check out the following website as well as this Facebook group.

Sincere apologies to each of you who was looking forward to another class series, but if even one of you caught the lindy bug or felt more comfortable in our dance classes than you have in classes past, we were successful.

For those interested in teaching: we have developed curriculum and discussed strategies for hours on end. We would love to share this knowledge with anyone else who is interested in teaching "ambi" or gender-inclusive classes in the future. Please reach out if you'd like to talk!

Keep dancing,

Ally & Rebecca
