  • Saturday Sept 20 Miguel De Sousa West Coast Swing 101 and Beyond the Basics (beginner to intermediate). 1:30 - 3:30pm, IM Dance Happy Studios, 4343 Spencer St, Torrance Note from Rhonda Diamond: Even though the address on Isaiah's website says 4343 Spencer, there's a better way to find the studio. If you have a GPS, put in 20417 Earl St., Torrance 90503. The studio is part of the West End Racquet Club, but it's way behind it, and a bit of a walk. That's why I like to give the 20417 Earl St. address because it's more direct.
