Latin Salsa

Bollywood Experience

Jenny Jitterbugs: Toddler Dancing Workshop

Appalachian Dancing Workshop

Come along and lean a few new dance steps with Soft Option. If you haven’t encountered this type of dance before, its similar to tap dancing to blue grass music. Fiddle, banjo and guitar provide the tune and the dancers, the percussion!
