Beginning Ballroom Dancing

Anyone can learn to partner dance and have fun on the dance floor. This beginning ballroom dance course is for either those new to partner dancing or who are very rusty and want to again start at the very beginning. The low-key, slowpaced, class will cover one ballroom dance a month. The first 4 weeks will cover the basics of Waltz, the second 4 weeks East Coast Swing, and beyond that the instructor will chose from ChaChaCha, Rumba, Foxtrot, Tango, or other dances. No Partner is required and leather soled shoes are recommended.

Intermediate Ballroom Dancing

This class is for those who have had some partner dancing experience and are at the intermediate beginning or advanced beginning level. This fun and slightly faster-paced course will cover beginning waltz and foxtrot during the first 5 weeks. The second 5 weeks will cover cha cha and rumba. The final 2 weeks will simulate dance experiences students might have attending outside ballroom dances. No Partner is required and leather soled shoes are recommended.
