Summer timetable

Even though the weekly courses have ended, TSS continues its activities during the summer! We'll organize weekly practices of west coast swing, practilonga every other week and lindy hop practices thrice which include teaching. In addition to the free practices, we offer international rally choreography classes for westie dancers.
In May, wcs 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. Practilongas and lindy hop practices also have a small fee. Everything will be held at the TSS dance studio at 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.
