Monday Night Swing

Many people have asked us: When will get back to dancing on Monday Nights? We have taken some time this week to think about this and want to provide everyone with an update.

The well-being of our Michigan dance community is our top priority. To that end, as we enter what appears to be another wave of community spread, Monday Night Swing will continue online only. While we desperately miss each and every one of you, there is currently no way, that is both safe and feasible, for MNS to restart in-person lessons or social dances. Recently, dance communities across our country have experienced sadness and loss as a result of relaxing safety requirements too soon. Our sympathies are with all those affected and we hope for the speedy recovery of those still overcoming the virus.

We share in the collective desire to get back on the dance floor. Until that time MNS will continue to provide online content and instruction. We are currently soliciting videos and content from new instructors, planning potential online events, and making content of our own to share with you. While impatiently wait to join you all on the dance floor again, please join us in wearing masks and remaining physically distant. The more we work together to keep one another safe, the sooner we will be together again.

Please join us next Monday as we prepare our next set of videos!

Thank you for being prudent and following safety guidelines.

Come Dance With Us (Steve And Robin)are not planning on dances in the near future. Praying that we all understand the importance of social distancing and mask wearing. Keeping the dance community safe is our priority as well. Thanks for Monday Night Swing on line😘

Not being able to dance is one of the worst parts of this epidemic. Thank you for making the difficult, but right choice.

Thanks for thinking of our dance community and keeping us safe.

Tim and I are also holding off on our dances. The safety and well being of our community is very important to us. We look forward to seeing everyone in the future! Stay safe! 😷

Monday Night Swing

Chris Van Houten from Chicago is back with an excellent explanation and drill for using the ground to help with balance and creating shapes in Brazilian Zouk and other dances. If you have ever been told to "ground your dance" or "use the floor", this video will help you out. Chris is one of the first teachers we brought to Michigan for Zouk Weekend Workshops. We're happy to bring him back for our second Zouk Video Series. ... See MoreSee Less

*Update*

Melissa and I hope everyone is staying safe, and staying home during this time. We want to update everyone on what we are doing for Monday Nights over this extended period of social distancing.

First, Monday Night’s physical location will be closed until it is deemed safe to gather. We assure you that we will be back as soon as we safely can. If you had a pass for March, we will honor it when we re-open at Concourse.

Second we will be offering instructional dance content online, every week on Monday and Thursday! You will get tips and drills in a short video brought to you by some fabulous instructors from all over the country. We have videos lined up for all our major dances such as West Coast Swing, Hustle, Brazilian Zouk, and possibly a few surprise topics!

We are making this content FREE to thank all of you for your support over the years.

If you like the videos and the content, please let the instructors know! We will have links with each video that will let you access more of the instructor’s content, book lessons, or contact them.

To access this content and stay updated, please make sure to like our Facebook page, follow us on Instagram, or subscribe to our e-mail list. You will be notified when the new content is available for you to watch and practice.

We will be announcing the guest instructors on our Facebook page and Instagram starting on April 6, so make sure you are subscribed!
