A Word About August Dance Classes:
For all of you new dancers we have a Beginning Swing Class and a Beginning Ballroom Survival class both on Wednesday Night.
If you are a quick learner and/or you want to learn many different dances this is a fantastic opportunity.
Wow, 6 dances in 2 hours.
The Classes that were suggested for August were, as you can see, very interesting.
Several people said that they would like to see more people (both Men and Woman) dancing most of the dances during the breaks.
That would be all of the Ballroom Dances, Salsa, Merengue, and Bachata.
Also, we heard that ladies would like to do more West Coast Swing since the bands are now playing much more West Coast Music.
They say it is almost impossible to find a leader for West Coast (why not Guys).
Guys: Your Single step swing is great…. Now you need to expand your dance horizons and get these woman dancing.
Ladies: If you want to have a group of leaders who can lead the dances you like, then you have to cajole these guys into taking lessons, join them, and then support them.
To this end we have, as you have asked, a plethora of Beginning Dance Classes, some of which we have not taught in quite some time.
Guys: There is Beginning Latin and Ballroom Survival… Between these two classes, at the end of 4 weeks, you will be able to get up and dance 8 (yes, that’s eight) different dances.
Ladies: You will learn to follow 8 different dances and if you are astute You will be able to follow any lead… Many of you know how important this is if you are dancing with a beginner.
Well, Now you have the August Dance Class line up and we hope you will take advantage of these inexpensive and excellent lessons..
We are looking forward to seeing you all this Friday August 11 for “The HepCats”.
Remember: If you have any suggestions for Dance Classes in September
Please e-mail us firstname.lastname@example.org or Call 410-663-0010
BTW… We also teach inexpensive private lessons
Thank you for Your Support,
