"Beginning Swing Level I" will be offered from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesdays; "Beginning Night Club Dancing" (focused on Salsa, Bachatta, Cumbia and Merengue) will be offered from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesdays. The cost is $40 for four classes for Columbia residents; $45 for nonresidents. Resident couples pay $75; nonresident couples, $80.
