The WaltzPlay Gang


July 30 – Waltz Variations Lesson

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

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

John Dougan will teach Waltz Variations for those who wish to refine and extend their waltz style. While we emphasize the fundamentals needed to execute these variations, we also remember the playfulness and creativity of making these moves your own. We will demonstrate a wide variety of variations and will teach the ones most requested by our dancers. Typically we dance to waltzes that are faster than most ballroom waltz tunes. Our variations reflect this, but we are also open to learning both moves and techniques from the ballroom community. After all, we pride ourselves on being a home for social dancing.

While we may rotate partners around the dance circle, you may continue with your special dance partner if you wish.

The lesson will be tailored to the dancers there, with fine waltzes selected by our DJ, Eric Howell. You may change partners or work with your special dance friend. We give you time to practice with individual attention to those who need and/or desire instruction.

After the lesson, we will dance to a wide variety of music with a playlist by DJ Eric Howell until 7 PM. In addition to various styles of Waltz, we also do many other types of dances: Swing, One Step, Rumba, Tango, Foxtrot, Cha-Cha, Hustle, Blues, Zydeco, etc.

• You can dress for the occasion, or show up in jeans
• Bring a partner, or find one there
• Learn to dance if you don’t already know how
• Improve your technique
