Of all the styles of paired dancing, Ballroom Dancing clinches the top of the list when it comes to dances that stand the test of time. Graceful and gorgeous, keeping you fit while you have fun, the dances that make up this genre call you to be in tune with your partner as you seamlessly blend the movements with not only the music, but with each-other as well.
Social Ballroom Dance Beginner 1 and 2: Ideal for the first time dancer, or those who wish to revisit basic skills of ballroom dance. These classes cover the fundamentals of partnering skills, floor craft, and basic ballroom patterns in various dances. Beginner 1 will demonstrate patterns in Foxtrot, East Coast Swing, Rumba, Waltz, and Cha-cha. Beginner 2 will introduce the Tango, Night Club 2-Step, Samba, Bolero, and Quickstep.
Social Ballroom Dance Intermediate 1 and 2: Designed for the dancer who has acquired a basic knowledge of ballroom dance and has shown proficiency in basic patterns and skills, this level covers a continuing work on dance technique including posture, position, and frame in addition to more developed dance patterns from previously learned dances. Intermediate 1 continues the same five dance patterns learned in Beginner 1 and can be taken immediately following Beginner 1, or taken simultaneously with Beginner 2. Likewise, Intermediate 2 takes up a more deliberate study of the five dances learned in Beginner 2.
Each proficiency level is comprised of 24 lessons, spanning 6 months (one 55-minute lesson per week). For example: If a couple enrolls in Beginner 1, and attends 6 months of classes (24 lessons), they will have completed the Beginner 1 proficiency level and may advance into Intermediate 1.
Because ballroom dance focuses on partnership development and is danced only as a couple, our lessons are tailored for pairs only. Therefore when you register, you must enroll with a partner. All age groups are welcome beginning at 12 years of age. Note: the class fee ($65/month) is per couple; not per person.
