Event description

Description

Social dancing is partner dancing that is informal, relaxed, and danced for the enjoyment of the partners – rather than to meet the criteria of a dance school or an audience. Social dancing is danced for enjoyment, socialization, recreation and health. The test for social dancing success is how much the dance partners have enjoyed the dance – not how they have danced in the eyes of others or how “correctly” they have danced.

Social dancing has no standardized teaching or learning curriculum. Social dance teachers teach steps and techniques they have come to prefer or what they hunch their students will prefer. The steps and techniques taught by one instructor can vary considerably from those taught by someone else. Social dancing is also dynamic. The types of social dances and styles change with the times.

Social dancing is different for American ballroom dancing which is sometimes called social ballroom dancing. Ballroom dancing is meant to be danced in ballrooms, and social dancing is suited for dancing on small or crowded floors, such as dance floors found in restaurants and pubs. If ballroom dancers wish to use their dancing skills in social dance environments, they do need to change and adapt their style and steps.

Pricing for group classes:

$15 per person

Clothing:

Comfortable and cool clothing is best. My opinion for women is to wear loose trousers. I think shoes that fasten are best for dance movement. Or you can purchase special dance shoes, for first time not with high heels.

Call (239) 910-0638 to reserve your spot : )
