Beginning level Ballroom dance class to get ready for New Year Eve dancing

** The lessons will be 4 Saturdays 12/1, 12/8, 12/15, and 12/29 in 2018 (skipping 12/22/18 in case people are travelling for holidays).

** Class field Trip to be planned in the class, tentatively planned for New Years Eve 12/31/18.

** Check in at 2:45 in the lobby

** Lesson from 3:00 to 4:45 and Practice time 4:45 to 5:00 on the dance floor

** Optional: Go to a bar nearby after 5:00 to socialize and to discuss any dancing that night (tabs on your own)

I am open to what people want to learn. But since many versions of "Auld Lang Syne" are slow waltzes, and since many songs played on New Years Eve are romantic and slow, I am thinking of teaching 3 or 4 dances from the following list.

** Waltz

** Cha Cha Cha

** Tango

** Rumba

** Fox Trot

The above dances will also prepare us for the Valentine's Day dancing too.

This class is designed for singles. So, we will be rotating partners frequently to make sure that nobody is without a partner for long. You get to meet and dance with most everybody of opposite gender in the group. 

Couples and partnered people are more than encouraged to join us. You can start/end with your partners, but change practice partners during the lessons. 

This is a multi-group activity. So, people from other groups will join us. 

Please bring clean shoes to change in the lobby. We are renting a dance studio that has been used to teach Jazz/Tap/Ballet classes for 30+ years. So, the dance floor is easy on the knees and the ankles, and we have to take care of it.

Address is Lake Harriet Dance Center, 6438 Lyndale Avenue South, Richfield, MN 55423.

The lobby entrance is in the back parking lot. The studio is a few blocks south of Crosstown 62 on Lyndale on the west side of Lyndale. The 66th street is all dug up in this area. So, please avoid it at all costs.

The cost for the lesson is $15/person/lesson

** But you can save $10 by paying $50 in the first lesson to cover all 4 lessons.

** Please bring cash (exact change please) or checks -- no credit cards or digital cash

** If you are not satisfied with the lesson after first 15 minutes on the first lesson, you can get a full refund and leave.

We hope to see you there!

Please invite your friends, family and coworkers to join us!
