April 2 – Waltz Basics
4 to 4:45 pm: Waltz Basics Lesson with Instructor John Dougan
4:45 to 7 pm: Dancing to a wide variety of music
$8 per person (cash or check)
John Dougan will teach basic waltz fundamentals. We will walk you through the basic walking three-quarters time steps, then onto waltzing next to your partner to the music. We will work with the basic frame as we waltz forwards and backwards, before gently beginning to turn in both directions. Once we are comfortable with turning in both directions we will progress around the room, turning as we are ready to, straightening out before turning again. From there we may explore options for getting into and out of a variety of variations, returning to being in step and in time with your partner.
After the lesson we’ll dance to a wide variety of music by DJ Eric Howell until 7 PM. Our dances focus on waltz in its various forms and most other popular dances including Swing, One Step, Rumba, Tango, Foxtrot, Cha-Cha, Hustle, Zydeco, Cajun etc.
