WaltzPlay holds dances every Sunday 2:00 to 5:30 pm
July 5 – Beginners Waltz
John Dougan will teach basic waltz fundamentals. We will work from the most important elements such as the steps, timing, and partnering. I will walk us through the easiest ways I know to begin incorporating the 1, 2, 3 three/ four rhythm into our movement both forward and backwards, eventually turning in both directions. This a good opportunity for dancers to review the basics and for your friends and acquaintances to learn to waltz with us.
We rotate partners around the teaching circle, but you may stay with your special dance friend if you desire. I try to demonstrate and explain, then put on music for you to practice , as I help individuals and couples with any challenges. You should be able to get the dance floor and waltz with us. We have some of the most generous and patient dancers who freely share their experience in both the classes and during our varied, mostly waltz, dance program from 3:00 to 5:30. And since we are not ‘ strictly ballroom’ we are some of the most forgiving and creative dancers you will find. Hope to see you there.
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.)
