Jeff Mumford Is Coming! Members-Intermediate Series

SCDC is delighted to announce that Jeff Mumford will continue his very popular Members-Intermediate workshops for 2020. These are a Members-only offering, which allows the lessons to have stable attendance, a balance between leaders and follows, and an opportunity to explore more complex dance topics. Enrollment for members is open now. These Saturday afternoon workshops give SCDC Members a great opportunity to work closely with Jeff and have fun with their West Coast Swing. The average class size last year was 15 dancers, so everybody gets a chance to work 1:1 with Jeff on their personal WCS skills and style.

There will be four sessions in 2020:

March 28
April 11
August 8 and
August 29

Private Lessons will be available for each of these dates.

All sessions are held at the FOP, 1049 Julia Drive, Melbourne. Cost is $15 per person for each session. To reserve your spot or reserve a Private lesson, contact Ron Smith at 202-664-0707.

No Dance On February 22!

FOP has claimed the date for a wedding reception.
Congratulations to the Bride and Groom.

SCDC is excited to present our Guest Instructor program for 2020. Thanks to our event committee we will host this group of Florida favorites and out-of-state pros. Our newest additions are Michael Kiehm and Carrie Smith, who will be visiting SCDC in April. We know our dancers will enjoy all of our returning professionals: John Lindo, PJ Turner, Matt Auclair, Danielle Blouin, and Jeff Mumford. In addition to his Guest Instructor workshops in August, Jeff will also be continuing his Members Intermediate WCS lesson series at SCDC. Thanks to all of our Guest Instructors for making these workshops such a great success.

If you would like a Private Lesson with any of these great teachers, please contact Ron Smith (202)664-0707, text or voice to reserve a place. We know these will fill up quickly.

This is the first SCDC weekend event for this incredible team.

Carrie is legendary teacher and DJ who will have SCDC jumping all evening at the big Saturday dance.

Six-time US Open Swing champion Matt Auclair returns for three workshops, the Saturday dance and private lessons in June. SCDC dancers love his relaxed and congenial teaching style. He is a gracious and gifted teacher who breaks loose when the music starts. SCDC does not guarantee that Matt will lead The Wobble again this year, but it could happen.

August 22—Jeff Mumford
Jeff Mumford is Family at SCDC. He has been a long-time supporter and a beloved teacher. His workshop weekends are always packed and he continues to be one of the most enthusiastic social dancers anywhere.
