Beginner Ballroom Dance

Thursday, March 7, 2019 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Calling all non-dancers and new-dancers or people who just want to refresh their ballroom skills! The Thursday "Beginner Lesson & Practice Dance" will get you started on the dance floor. No prior experience is needed. Partners are not needed. Singles, mixed-sex couples and same-sex couples are all welcome.

From 7-7:45pm the class portion of the evening is will cover one Ballroom or Rhythm dance each week. The class includes technique such as dance frame, one or two basic steps and an understanding of the dance's rhythm. The weekly rotation is:


1/24 - Hustle (Disco)
1/31 - Foxtrot
2/07 - Rumba
2/14 - West Coast Swing
2/21 - Waltz
2/28 - East Coast Swing
3/07 - American Style Tango

At 7:45, the session switches to a practice dance. Music will be played until 9pm so you can practice dancing to the material taught during the class. During the dance the instructor will circulate, answering questions, working individually with the couples and occasionally stopping the music to briefly introduce an improvement for everyone to apply to their dancing.

The cost is $10 per person for both the class and practice session, $5 per person for just the 7:45 to 9pm practice session.
