$8 per person (cash or check)

Sunday, July 28, instructor Peyton Todd will teach Waltz Fundamentals for beginners and anyone who would like to improve their basic waltz skills. If you have been at our waltz variations classes, you may find this class helpful as variations depend on the ability to do the footwork, utilize the flexible frame, and floor craft. Floor craft is the term for line of dance, spacing between dancers, and forms of courtesy on the dance floor. For beginners, you will learn the basics that will allow you to get on the floor with virtually any of our friendly dancers or your friends. We do social waltzing which is not as formal as conventional ballroom waltzing, although most of what we teach is applicable in all dancing. 

While we may rotate partners around the dance circle, you may continue with your special dance partner if you wish. Your questions are encouraged and used to further the class.

In addition to various styles of Waltz, we also do many other types of dances: Swing, Two-Step, Rumba, Tango, Foxtrot, Cha-Cha, Hustle, Blues, Cajun, Zydeco, etc.

Waltzplay is held on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month in the Fellowship Hall of Clairmont Presbyterian Church, located at 1994 Clairmont Road, Decatur, GA. 30033
