West Coast Swing Intermediate (5):
Instructor Liz Nania, Director of OUT to Dance. Have you ever wanted to really dance salsa, and feel that exhilaration? If you know a little basic salsa footwork and simple right turns, or have taken a beginner's class, (or none of the above, but you're a fast learner,) you're ready to really get your salsa dancing much hotter. Make your salsa sizzle! We'll learn variations on spins, cross-body leads, wraps, and more.
If you're not ready for this class but you're ready to experience the joy of salsa and merengue dancing, try our Salsa and Merengue class for everybody starting Mon. April 20. Info here.
“I used to get the Sunday night heebie-jeebies before the work week. Now I look forward to dancing, laughing, moving, breathing – what could be better?” T. Tibbets, Jamaica Plain, MA

Liz Nania, director of OUT to Dance, was the recipient of the Lesbian and Gay Achievement Award at Beth Israel Deaconness Medical Center for outstanding contributions to the health and well-being of the LGBT community outside the medical center. She received this award to honor her many years of groundbreaking work teaching and organizing dance for GLBT individuals.
"I recall my well-meaning sisters scoffing when I said I was too embarrassed to take conventional dance classes. They didn't understand how it feels to be the only gay/ transgendered person in a room, especially in the traditionally gendered atmosphere of dance class. You were Fred or Ginger according to your birth certificate--period. OUT To Dance classes changed all of that for many people for the first time."
Kathleen A. Carbone, Somerville, MA
Dave and I have been participating in dance classes for the past almost 3 years. It is a real blast and a great way to spend a couple of hours on Sunday night. We have made really amazing friendships there and the teacher, Liz Nania, is incredible. It's a completely non-threatening environment and many of the people we have met there will be dear friends for a long time to come. BTW, much of the music we learn to dance to are pieces heard in clubs today! Yep, the sound may be different, but the beat is there. It won't be long 'til we're featured on Dancing With The Stars! Right!!
Paul Weeks, Hudson, NH
“John and I have become totally addicted
to these classes. It's a really fun date night out for us, and
as a bonus, we've made some new friends. Who knew?"
John and Justin from the North Shore, MA
"I drive from Worcester to West Roxbury for these awesome classes, and my friend drives from New Hampshire. That says a lot about what a great time we have!"
Sherry P. from Worcester, MA
“We felt totally comfortable dancing as partners
in a dance class full of other same-sex dancers; what a relief.
Plus, we made several new friends. What a blast!”
Denise and Pat from Cambridge, MA
We were afraid the song we
picked would be hard for us with four left feet. But, all it took
was one lesson from you and our wedding dance was awesome. You
helped calm our nerves by teaching us the basics like
leading and following (who knew that two leads is one too many!). On the Big Day we remembered your instructions and we looked elegant. We even slipped in the twirls you taught us and people cheered! Thank you, Liz!
