It was the early 1960s and the air was filled with music of the Beach Boys streaming out of small transistor radios. Beach party movies with stars such as Annette Funicello, Frankie Avalon, and Elvis filled the silver screen with drag racing, surfing, and dancing – lots of dancing!
Join us for the Beach Party Dance Discovery as we learn some hip and groovy dances made popular by 60s beach parties!
Clothing that is comfortable to move in and dance shoes if you have them. If not, non-rubber soled shoes. No sandals.
* Beach balls, bikinis, and other beach attire is not required.
