Let's Go

Featured Event: Swing Dance Lessons

Swing Dance Lessons with Jessica may be great exercise, but with music from the East Coast Big Bands era, they also sound like loads of fun. Adults of all ages and experience levels are encouraged to join Tuesdays at 6:45 p.m. Classes are held at the Palestine YMCA, and are included in the cost of membership or $5 per class. Call 903-729-3139, and get swingin'!
