Summer 2018

Summer semester 2018

Even though the weekly courses have ended, TSS continues its activities during the summer! We'll organize weekly free practices of lindy hop and west coast swing and practilonga every other week. In addition to the free practices, we offer Camel hop choreography classes for lindy hoppers and international rally choreography classes for westie dancers. In May, possible free practices are included in the spring semester fee (or membership fee), but during the summer semester (June, July, August) a small fee will be collected for each practice. Everything will be held in the TSS dance studio in Saippua Center. To participate in the summer semester you don't have to be TSS's member. There is no registration for the summer activities.
