The progressive two-step is a modern smooth dance that incorporates the formal structures of ballroom dance, and is not simply a “country" dance. Instruction will focus on the elements and foundational figures of the DVIDA syllabus for this type of movement. Students will be able to rotate partners frequently, so a regular dance partner is not required for this class. Ages 18 and up.
When: Saturday February 18th from 11:30am-1 PM
Where: JUMP MOVE Studio on the 5th floor.
What to Expect: Wear clothes you can move in and bring a water bottle. Please wear soft soled athletic shoes or leather soled. We have limited changing room space and do not have lockers for personal items at the moment so please plan accordingly. Check our FAQs below for any further questions.
Movement to music uplifts my body and soul. I’ve always loved to learn, share, teach and help others, so now as a retired engineer, I am embracing a renewed passion. As Vice President of the Idaho Country Western Dance Association (ICWDA) I have taught Two-Step and other types of dances. "Dance is like skiing, you can ski the moguls, but first you must learn a few foundational elements and then you’ll see how they can be tied together and tailored for your unique style."
What inspires you?
"My 8 year old daughter inspires me. Two-Step and art inspires me. Sharing, people who care about others, and people who love to learn inspire me."
