August 30 – Waltz Variations

John Dougan will teach waltz variations. We will explore some of the more popular variations such as parallels, grapevines, lacing moves, passing and traveling moves. If so desired, I will share my easy version of cross step waltz. I would also like to touch on incorporating swing and tango variations into our waltz vocabulary. This would particularly involve swing turns and the best ways to turn and be turned. I am also trying some tango moves such as Ochos while waltzing. You may have moves of your own that you would like to try in waltz. Remember that the class is for your benefit, so you may ask for those variations that you wish. I will try to address your requests to the best of my ability.

We usually rotate partners around the teaching circle, but you may keep your special dance friend if you wish. I try to talk little, demonstrate enough, and let you practice without and with music. I prefer to give you individualized attention to the most important challenges you may have. And your challenges may help others.

Hope to see you there.
