May 28 – Waltz Turns

We’ve got Waltz… in a group that’s More FUN than Formal! Join us every Sunday at 4 PM at Clairmont Presbyterian Church in Milligan Hall.

4 to 4:45 pm: Waltz Turns Lesson with Instructor John Dougan
4:45 to 7 pm: Dancing to a wide variety of music
$8 per person (cash or check)

Instructor John Dougan will teach Waltz Turns. While rotary or turning waltz is primarily done together in the dance embrace, we often break apart and create possibilities. We will start simple with same-side hands, cross-hands and two-handed turns. From there we will explore my favorite turning moves, including a flowing vine like move that utilizes not turning. Not turning can be harder to lead and follow than the presumption of turning. If we have time, we will include a lovely partner turn that moves well along the line of dance.

We teach to those who attend, trying to tailor the class to their abilities and needs and will address questions and your requests. As usual we may rotate partners but you may practice with your special dance friend if you wish. We teach a casual social waltz, not the more formal ballroom style.

After the lesson, we will dance to a wide variety of music until 7 PM by DJ Eric Howell. 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.
