About the course

These are our “introductory” ballroom classes where timing and basic steps for 2 styles of dance are introduced. They are great for those just getting started in ballroom as well as those who have some ballroom background but would like to learn more about a style.

Each class covers 2 styles. The same 2 styles are taught for 4 consecutive weeks. Examples include waltz/rumba, swing/foxtrot, and cha cha/tango. Each of the 4 weeks stands on its own. So, even though it is highly recommended, it is not necessary to attend all 4 weeks.

The first week of every 4-week series teaches the history, timing, and basic step for the dance style. In addition, one or two other steps are taught. Each week after that starts with a short review of the timing and basic step followed by instruction for several additional steps different from the previous weeks.

This approach allows students to learn enough about a style to decide if they would like to learn more. It is a good way for those that are getting back into dancing to refresh and remember what they know. Classes may be repeated to build confidence and master the basics of a style.
