Mix for Beginners

It's a p
erfect mix of learning Cha-Cha-Cha & Quickstep

Cha-Cha-Cha - This is a fun & flirty dance that grew out of the Cuban Mambo and became immensely popular in the United States in the 1950’s. It consists of triple chasse steps (cha-cha-cha’s) and rock steps. Cha-Cha-Cha has a modified Cuban Motion - hip action, because of the speed. This is an exuberant dance that will get your heart pumping and put a smile on your face.

Quickstep - Much like a fast version of the Foxtrot, the Quickstep is a Ballroom Dance style composed of extremely quick stepping and syncopated feet rhythms in time to fast-paced music. Although difficult to master and perform, the Quickstep is lots of fun to watch.

We'll make sure you know both of these dances! 

Both singles and couples are welcome to attend. We rotate partners throughout the class to give everyone the opportunity to dance with different partners and make new friends.

No prior dance experience necessary. No partner required.

Coming up in September:

Waltz - The romantic Waltz is one of the most popular ballroom dances of all time. Considered by some as the "mother of present day dances" and the "backbone dance" of the ballroom, the Waltz is the basis for many dances. It is a smooth dance that travels around the line of dance, characterized by its "rise and fall" action. The Waltz is danced to soothing, dream-like music that has a unique 3/4 time signature with an accent on the first beat of every measure. The Waltz will teach the dancer the importance of maintaining posture, balance and timing - thus achieving the graceful, sweeping movements that make this dance such a stylish and regal one.

Swing The Swing is a “must learn” dance. From its origin in 1927, the Lindy paved the way for many more swing-style dances, which developed. Characterized by jumps, spins, turns and throw-outs, the Lindy was seen on dance floors all across America. Today, the Lindy has undergone many alterations and has been toned down and incorporated into a ballroom format known most commonly as the Swing. One of the appealing features of the East Coast Swing is that the dance works well on a wide-open ballroom floor as well as in a crowded nightclub.
