Classes

At the Fairview Hospital Wellness Center

Join my group of beginners and more seasoned dancers to learn and practice the Waltz, Fox-trot, Cha Cha, Rumba, Swing and anything else you all want to work on.  We meet on Thursday evenings and have two sessions.  The first session, between 7:00 and 7:45 is generally tailored to the beginning couple.  The second session, 7:45 to 8:30, often draws more experienced couples.  Call ahead to talk about which would be best for you.  Singles welcome, but please call ahead and I may be able to find you a partner.

Check http://www.lakewoodrecreation.com for the coming dates and times for the following classes:

Latin Dancing

Learn dances such as the Rumba, Merengue, Salsa, Mambo, Tango and Cha-Cha.  Men learn to lead and women learn to follow in come basic dance steps.  You will be exposed to the Cuban motion and rhythm.

Jitterbug-Swing Dancing

If you somehow missed out on the Swing Era and are looking to join the wave of young and old that have taken up Swing, now is your time.  Learn to lead and follow to your favorite Big Band music and Rock-and-Roll doing turns, kicks, swivels and more.  My approach will get you going quickly and you will soon be ready for the local dances.

Ballroom Social Dancing

Learn the four most used dances:

  • Fox-trot, a slower dance
  • Jitterbug-Swing, a faster dance
  • Waltz, a beautifully formal dance often danced at weddings
  • Cha-cha, a fun and flirty Latin dance

Fun and easy to get started, and excellent exercise.
