Full Immersion Swing Era Dance Class in Second Life @ Full Immersion Swing Era Dance

SavoyBallroom.org and 2Ldance.org have produced a full-immersion dance class experience in Second Life which teaches the dances, music, bands, dance halls, and history of the Swing Era. Volunteer partners are usually available to enjoy the class with, or bring your own. The 50 minute class runs continuously and you can enter the class at any time. General info is available at http://savoyballroom.org. The Dance 301 class operates 24 x 7 x 365 and can be entered at any time. Two hosted sessions are offered for this VWBPE Immersive Experience. Several of the creators of Savoy and Dance 301 will be onsite to hand out our design abstract for the class, and discuss it with guests.

  • Participants will be able to experience the dances, music, bands and dance halls of the Swing Era
