September 7 – Basic Waltz
Jay Aland will teach Basic Waltz. This is the perfect place to start learning to dance. Waltz is mainly about connecting with your partner, and thus is a good foundation for learning all partner dances. This class will be an opportunity to start into dancing, or to hone your dancing skills such that you will be a more desirable partner in every dance that you do.
The waltz was invented over 200 years ago in Vienna, as a turning dance. The close embrace of waltz was a dramatic departure from the style of other dances of the era, like the minuet, and quickly became very popular with the dancers. The waltz spread quickly all over the world in 1815, and remains the most popular partner dance in the world even today. This basic turning waltz is suited to a wide range of musical styles and tempos; you can dance it to every song in 3/4 time.
In addition to various styles of Waltz, we also do many other types of dances such as:
- One Step
- Ragtime Tango
Additional Helpful Information:
- Beginners are welcome.
- Come with or without a partner.
- Dress casually or fancy, it’s up to you.
- Wear shoes for dancing. (We strongly recommend leather-soled shoes.)
