Swing Dance Classes
Looking for a vintage swing dance studio? Look no further! You have found the largest and best vintage swing dance studio in our region. Swing Kat Entertainment, it’s classes and dance events are not only the biggest thing happening at the Ballroom On High in Pottstown PA, it is the reason the Ballroom On High was opened in the first place. Most vintage swing dance venues are not a vintage swing dance studio. Most do not have a syllabus or learning plan in place. The reason is that like Swing Kat they were founded for the purpose of giving people a place to dance and not for necessarily teaching them to do so. Swing Kat was founded by owner Faryl Codispoti for this same reason. Faryl started Swing Kat and opened the Ballroom On High so that he wouldn’t have to drive to Washington DC anymore to find vintage swing dancing. However, Faryl quickly saw the need for instructing people to dance in a systematic way. This was something that did not exist between New York City to Washington DC and something he knew he wanted for dancers in this region. He had always wished there had been a place for him to learn in this fashion. Well, someone had to create it, right?
Ballroom Dance Classes
We have ballroom dance classes in the heart of downtown Pottstown PA! Our weekly ballroom dance classes are a great way to learn ballroom dancing! Lynn Kettenburg’s DANCE SYLLABUS (link to info below) will take you from a bronze or beginner level all the way to silver or advanced level. Our ballroom dance classes end at silver as few students achieve gold level. Those who do should be taking private lessons which is something we also offer.
Country Dance Classes
Until around 2008 country line dancing was all the rage. You had the Friendly Tavern and Prospectors down in New Jersey. As well as Montana West up in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. Other smaller venue littered the countryside as well. Much like the vintage swing dance fad before it, country line dancing was a fad coming to an end. But that is the thing about fads, they are just that. Serious dancers never stop just because the fad has come and gone. They just keep on dancing! So I suspect much like vintage swing dance’s true revival (happening now), we will soon see the revival of serious country line dancing. Not just a fad but a serious moment that will come to stay.
