From then on we will meet every other week from 4 to 6 pm with an hour for lessons and an hour for practice. If you are unable to attend this first session you are welcome to come at 4 pm on Feb 6 to get a re-cap. For these lessons please bring shoes that will allow you to slide or else, wear socks. This will not go well for you if your shoes are causing you to grip the floor. We may have a gap of about 3 weeks before the next session, but I highly encourage you to use this time to practice your footwork and get confortable with it, it will make the rest of the semester easier for you.
