This class will introduce some of the most fun and useful ballroom dances, as danced socially in most ballrooms, at weddings, etc. This quarter we will cover triple-step East Coast Swing, Cha-cha-cha or Rumba, ballroom Samba, and American Tango. Return students are welcome. We will be teaching somewhat different things each quarter and are available before and after class to review steps from previous quarters. Both singles and couples are welcome. To make sure everyone has a chance to learn how to lead and follow flexibly, there will be frequent rotations of partners, in which everyone is urged to participate. At the end of each class there will be practice time at which those who came with a partner can work together. Class members are encouraged to learn the nontraditional role (women as leaders, men as followers) if they wish. Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move. Footwear should be lightweight and well-connected to your foot: i.e.flipflops, platforms, and boots are not recommended. No previous experience necessary. Sign up in advance.
