Intro to Ballroom

No current classes. Pleas call for more information

 

Description: No matter what reason you are learning for, this is the class for you! We do a sampling of 3 dances over 6 weeks.  These dances should get you smoothly through any social dance situation. It will take you from the crowded dance floor with basic rhumba to the expansive ballroom at the Casa Loma Ballroom. The dances we generally begin with are Foxtrot, Swing, and Rumba. If there is a dance you just have to learn, tell the instructor and we will do our best to incorporate it!

The classes are fun and we try to make it as easy and painless as possible for those of you who might be a bit reluctant, we promise!

(You do not need a partner for class but we do gender balance the class and frequently the students taking this class are not inclined to rotate partners so be prepared that you might end up dancing with the same person for the series if no one is changing partners and we have arranged a partner for you.)
When: Tuesdays from 8pm to 9pm
Instructors: David Scherer
Where: Convergence Dance & Body Center (location information)

Price: $90.00
