Disco at the Library
Saturdays, January 5 and January 12, 1:30 PMPlease join Stephen and Deirdre Burke of Shall We Dance? for introductory lessons to Disco/Hustle on two Saturdays in January - January 5th and January 12th from 1:30 to 3:00.
The movie Saturday Night Fever catapulted Disco in the mid-70’s, and the Disco dance craze began. It is still popular in many dance studios and clubs today.
So let’s chase away the winter blues, strut your stuff, and enjoy an opportunity to learn this energetic and fun dance while getting some great exercise at the same time.
