Adult Class: Social Dancing

Dance is for fitness and fun while meeting new friends! In this introduction to social dancing, you will learn the basic steps and common variations of the most popular forms of partner dancing in America today. Types of dance include swing (4-count and 6-count), waltz (cross-step and rotary), fox-trot (magic step and club two-step), and Latin (tango, cha cha, salsa).  

It is not required to bring a partner, but light-weight, soft-soled, and comfortable shoes are highly recommended.

Classes begin January 7th - March 25th.
*No class held on January 21st and February 18th.
