The first session (7-8 pm) will be intermediate level moves that may blend some elements of L. A. style with Cuban style so they are very unique. In the second session (8-9 pm), Glen will teach styling, including a number of styling ideas for men. The last session (9-10 pm) will be on advanced moves which again may have some components that blend L. A. style and Cuban style so they are unique.

(Intermediate dancers can stay and practice what they covered in earlier sessions.) Cost: one session: $15; two sessions: $25; three sessions: $30.
