S.A.C. hosts professional swing dance instructors

This upcoming Friday, Nov. 22, Student Activities Council (S.A.C.) will be hosting Swing Dance.

The event will take place in the dance space in Zurn building, at 8 p.m.

Students can come in couples or individually and they can be paired up with someone at the event.

Connie Shoop will be teaching the swing dance lessons along with her husband Mike Shoop.

Renowned dancers, including those who have appeared in ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, Shoop’s dance teachers. She has her own studio in Erie called Connie’s Ballroom Dance.

This is her second year coming to campus for this event. Last year, when the event took place at the Student Union it had great success.

Programmers of the event are Bri Macri, sophomore, and Allyson Gass, junior, along with the S.A.C. members.

“Come join S.A.C for swing dance lessons this Friday, whether you have a partner or not, the dance class will give you and your friends an opportunity to let lose after a long week of work and studying,” Macri said.

Gift certificates will be given to the most improved, cutest couple, best pair and best overall.

Students are encouraged to come prepared with socks or to dance barefoot because street shoes are not allowed in the dance space.

The experience will differ from the past year because students will be able to see themselves in the mirrors from the dance space.

This would be a great experience for students who are dancers and for those who are not. It is an opportunity to have fun and learn a new and different type of dance.

At the same time it can be a great time to disconnect from all the stress and work from school. A dance lesson from professionals is a great way to start off the weekend.
