6:30 - 7:15pm, Basic Swing - Beginning Level 1
January 5th - February 2nd

"Swing" is a category that encompasses a variety of different Swing dances that vary in tempo, character, and music. Basic Swing (aka; Single Time Swing) is the simplest and easiest Swings to learn and do, making it the best dance to start with as a newcomer. Because of its simplicity, Basic Swing can accommodate the faster varieties of Swing music. But don't despair! It is a rotational dance with an easy basic timing of Step Step Rock Step that will get you started on your way to discovering the FUN of dancing together as partners.
($50/person - 5/wks)



7:45 - 9pm, Ballroom Waltz - Beginning Level 1
January 5th - February 2nd

Waltz is a beautiful dance of pure elegance characterized by graceful sweeping, swaying rise and fall. It is the perfect romantic dance that is often used for that "First Dance" at weddings. The 3/4 timing gives every step equal time - no quicks or slows to contend with.
($50/person - 5/wks)

“Ditch the workout, Join the Party”
Move your Groove and Shake your Booty and wiggle off those extra Holiday pounds to the fun, infectious pulse of Latin music!
Zumba® Fitness is like no other workout you will ever experience! Zumba® Fitness was created in the mid-90’s by Colombian native Alberto “Beto” Perez, a celebrity fitness trainer and choreographer for International pop superstars. Inspired by the traditional cumbia, salsa, samba and merengue music he grew up with, Beto paired his favorite pulsating Latin rhythms with the red-hot international dance steps his clients loved and Zumba® Fitness (Spanish slang for “to move fast and have fun”) was born!

($65/month or $50/five classes Punch Card To be used on either Mondays or Thursdays by January 29th )

6:30 - 7:45pm, Latin Salsa - Beginning Level 1
Jasnuary 14th - February 11th

Salsa is fast, sassy, fun and is considered a Club Style social Latin dance. It shares the same timing as Mambo and Cumbia (Quick, Quick, Slow) as well as many of the same moves, but "breaks" on the 1st beat of the music and holds on the 4th beat. It's not as syncopated, has a bit more "squatty" feeling to it, and the foot action is flatter than other Latin dances. It's a simple enough dance to do, and the music is infectious. Salsa is the perfect hot Latin dance for beginners.

6:30 - 7:45pm, Latin ChaCha - Beginning Level 1
January 8th - February 5th

ChaCha is flirtatious, fun, relaxed and carefree. The "slow" used in the Rumba is replaced with a faster "side-together-side" (Cha-Cha-Cha). The rhythm is accented by strong, compelling percussions, making it easy to identify in the music and difficult to sit still when you hear it! The Cha-Cha is a spot dance characterized by a rhythmic "tic" in the upper body, "Cuban motion" or "Latin action" of the hips and legs, and a lot of energy. Don't let that scare you off, though! The dance itself is easy to learn. Everybody can learn the ChaCha and they should. Music examples are: Smooth(Santana), Get The Party Started(Pink), Gettin Jiggy Wit It(Will Smith), I Need to Know (Marc Anthony). ($50/person - 5/wks)
