SCC Social Dance classes begin in September

August 07, 2014

Take time for yourself and enroll in social dance classes at St. Charles Community College this fall. A lifetime investment in fun and wellness, dance is a great way to exercise without working out.

SCC Social Dance classes begin in September

Beginning in September, learn how to swing, rumba, line dance and more with award-winning dance instructors Linda Landwehr and Stan Mayer. The classes will be in the College Center dance studio on the SCC campus, 4601 Mid Rivers Mall Drive in Cottleville.

Instructors Landwehr and Mayer are former professional champion dancers with more than 25 years experience in dance competition and instruction. 

Dance instruction is available in various dance forms, including foxtrot, waltz, rumba, swing and tango for all skill levels, ages 14 and up. The spacious dance studio has a floating wood dance floor, mirrors and air conditioning.
