Winter Lesson Announcement

Happy New Year from UMSwing! We have a big announcement to share with the beginning of 2013.
Starting in January 2013, UMSwing will be partnering with Bison Recreation Services to provide swing dancing lessons at the University of Manitoba. This means that there will be some changes with how lessons run.

Changes with Lessons

Lessons will now take place Tuesdays 8:15 - 10:00 pm and Sundays 5:00 - 6:30 pm in dance spaces provided by Bison Rec. Registration will take place at the Bison Rec facilities, so please visit the customer service desk at 145 Frank Kennedy Centre or visit http://onlineca.activecommunities.com/bsal/Activities/ActivitiesDetails.asp?ProcessWait=N&aid=32

Lessons will be continuing in a 4-week format. The fees for a lesson are payable 4 weeks at a time. No drop-ins will be allowed. However, late registrations may be allowed on the instructor’s discretion.

Club Time

Club time is a 3 hour practice time on Sundays from 2:00 – 5:00 pm. This time is not to be used for instruction, and will only incorporate dance moves that were taught in lessons. The room can be used to practice aspects of swing dancing such as social dancing and choreography. A Safety Officer (likely an UMSwing executive trained in first aid) will be present to supervise club time. The cost to attend this practice time per term is $26 for U of M students, $34 for U of M alumni/staff, and $91 for community members.
