Major In-Touch Swingsters

Tex and Kurt

Kurt Wegner
Tex Houston
Two people, who came together to teach swing, brought swing dancing to a lot of people in Kansas City. Their beneficiaries number in the hundreds - at least.
Tex Houston and Kurt Wegner teach every Sunday evening at The Grand Emporium from 8 pm to 11 pm and on other days prior to swing bands and rockabilly bands.  At 11 pm the band comes on stage.  Call 816.561.3424 for information on their swing-dance lessons.  

Tex and Kurt also teach swing on Saturdays at the Midtown School of Dance, 1410 W. 39th St. (across from Minsky's) 816.561.6873 (in 5-week sessions on Saturdays) 
They are available for lessons at weddings, couple showers and parties.

These two are responsible for getting hundreds at least (haven't counted) of people dancing to swing music. Those are a lot of people who otherwise might have been sitting by the sidelines and feeling miserable because they "can't" dance. A couple of hours with them and you will have more fun on the dance floor than you thought possible.
