Finding the studio

The RVA Swing dance studio is located inside the Lakeside Towne Center at 6114C Lakeside Ave.  There is plenty of free parking in the lot adjacent to the Lakeside Farmer's Market pavilion.  Enter via Lakeside Ave underneath the RVA Swing sign and head down the hall. The studio is at the end of the hall and there is a small reception area for students to wait and remove their shoes.

Please be aware that some GPS systems (particularly Apple maps) think the studio location is 2 blocks away. Keep an eye out for the CVS, the Lakeside Farmer's Market, and the Lakeside Towne Center as your landmarks if coming for the first time.

This class is held at the RVA Swing dance studio and is presented independently by Cate Harrison. RVA Swing gift certificates are not valid for events and classes put on by independent instructors renting our space. Independent renters set their own prices, schedules, and policies, so please direct any questions about these class sessions directly to Cate.
