The bumpin' club life not for you? (Me either.)
You might as well try a dance from an earlier decade that emphasizes class over crass. This Saturday, check out Uptown Swing Dance, a new monthly dance night hosted by the Hop to the Beat dance studio at Brookline Tai Chi.
Admission is $15 ($10 with a student ID), and you are welcome to show up solo. As for beginners, no need to be scared. From 8:15 p.m. to 9 p.m., there will be lessons. By the time the DJ and the live music kick in, you'll be ready to impress. (Or, at the very least, you'll cut down on the number of toes you step on. Your potential Jitterbug partners thank you.)
