The fall semester of our weekly youth ballroom classes begins Saturday, September 10th! We currently offer two levels of Youth Ballroom (includes Latin, Rhythm, Smooth, and Standard) for dancers ages 8-16. Beginner [Mon, 6:30 PM] and Advanced [Sat, 12 PM]. Beginner is open to all, but Advanced requires an audition (Monday 8/29/2016 at 6:30 PM*). As classes and students develop, we anticipate additional levels to evolve into the schedule and students to be distributed in them, according to their abilities. We expect the Beginner class to be skewed toward the lower end of the age range and the Advanced class toward the higher end.
Mondays, 6:30-7:30. We will teach basic steps for all dances, and in all cases be stressing the fundamentals of balance, framing, partnering, movement, and other skills required for true lead and follow dance (no choreography)
Saturdays, 1:00-2:00. More advanced steps will be taught, with more advance framing techniques, and more attention to connection, sway, poise, musicality, continuity movement, and contra-body motion. More advanced dances, such as Bolero, Viennese Waltz, Samba, and Slow Foxtrot will be introduced. One of the goals of this class is to give those who wish, the skills they need to participate in serious competitive dance.
*Auditions by appointment are available for an additional fee. Contact the studio for more details or to make an appointment
