Level 1 - Beginners 

Weekly Beginner Swing and Country Classes 
Dancing looks hard, even scary! But it’s really not. Dancing is fun and exciting (regardless of whether you’re getting it “wrong” or not). The best way to get into dancing is to start from a point of having fun and that’s what our Level 1 classes are all about. We know you’re worried you might “get it wrong”, we also know you’ve probably never danced in your life (except for what they make you do at school) but that’s absolutely okay. Join in on our Level 1 classes and we’ll show you why dancing is fun and absolutely not scary at all.

Location

We are located at the American Legion 410 W. Coll Street in Downtown New Braunfels (right across the street from the Sophienburg Museum two blocks from Downtown Social).

REVIEWS:

    "Every time I come to Swing Junction I love to dance because Rob and Diane have made a great community atmosphere! I feel welcomed and everyone encourages and celebrates each person as individuals. If you have never danced before have no fear Rob and Diane and their teachers are so easy going and wonderful communicators! They have so much knowledge and are always willing to share their tips and tricks.” - Rebecca Strickler

    "Fabulous experience learning from these folks. Professional, patient, and funny!" - Charlene Willfong

    "I knew how to 2 step, but I wanted to learn some spins & other simple moves. I took a class & I feel a lot more comfortable than I would after the one hour free classes at the clubs" David Montplaisir

    "Rob & Diane van Haaren are amazing instructors, new to our area after a long career teaching dance in the Bay Area and overseas. They are SO GOOD, especially with beginners. You’ll be having so much fun, you won’t even realize how quickly you’ve learned!" - Katie Alexander
