Valentine's Group and Party
We are holding a special valentine's group class and practice party this year.
The class will introduce the basic Waltz, Rumba and Swing patterns, a basic dance frame, and how to find the beat and dance with it.
For the practice party we turn the lights down, the music up (just a bit) and put on a playlist of fun or romantic songs so you can try out your new dances. We give you a "cheat sheet" to recommend which dance to use for each song, and your instructor is available if you have questions, or need a quick reminder.
Due to covid we are limiting each evening to 5 couples. You will have your own 20'x 20' area to dance in with a small table and two chairs.
Please bring an "indoor" pair of shoes to wear. The salt and sand of winter can ruin our wood floor.
To sign up for either evening use the links below, and purchase a gift card to print out and bring with you.
If you have any questions feel free to call me on my cell. (207) 877-5244
