We’re very proud of our expanded core curriculum, but there is so much more to Swing and jazz-era artistry than we can possibly cram into regular classes. Your Bee Keepers and other special guests are thrilled to bring you a series of monthly 2-hour special skills workshops filled with the intricate concepts, detailed technique and exciting new styles you crave!
All Special Skills Workshops will take place at the Dovercourt House (1st Floor)
Plan your Spring of Swing!
