Gender Friendly Partner Dancing
Gender friendly partner dancing is about learning how to move to music with another human being, without the attached stereotypes of sexuality and gender. This class will teach you the absolute basics: how to ask someone to dance, how to connect in different holds, how to move around the space together. You can lead, or follow, or have a go at both. If you come back to more classes, you'll learn different dance styles, and how to get fancy! This class is 100% beginner friendly - you don't need a partner, or special shoes - just come as you are and be ready to try moving to music with another person.

We’ll walk the Rotary Trail while enjoying community and movement! This is free to attend and no registration is required. Questions? Email Kelly@mclc-bao.org
