Get into the swing of things with swing dance lessons. People attending the Big Band Bash on Saturday can take a free swing dance lesson today from 6 to 7 p.m. at the City Park recreation center.
People who aren’t headed to the bash — a fundraiser for the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra — can sign up for paid swing dance lessons that start next month.
Instructor Diana Moghrabi, who works for Salisbury Community Planning Services, has donated her expertise for the past two nights to teach free lessons at City Park.
“I just love to see people dance,” she said.
This is the second year she’s offered lessons before the Big Band Bash. Moghrabi specializes in teaching beginners.
Moghrabi also will teach a paid dance class through the Salisbury Parks and Recreation Department. The class will run from 7 to 8 p.m. Fridays, beginning Feb. 4 and ending March 11.
The cost is $30 for singles and $50 for couples. To sign up, call 704-638-5295.
Big Band Bash attendees who want a free lesson Friday can just show up at City Park. Twenty people had the place swinging Wednesday.
“We had a great time,” Moghrabi said.
