Social Dance Parties
Practice parties are opportunities to “test drive” your new steps, and develope better “muscle memory”.
Although you may not learn new patterns at the dance parties, they are truely invaluable in your dancing education.
Every Friday, and some Saturdays we host a dance party starting at 8:15 pm. The lights get turned down, the music gets turned up, and soft drinks and light appetizers are served.
Instructors are available to answer questions if you can’t remember how a pattern starts, or which dance you should do to each song.
Visually seeing what a dance can look like when it is mastered, practicing moving around the floor without crashing into others, training your ear to quickly decide what dance goes to each piece of music-these are all valuable learning tools you can only find at a dance party.
Friday Dance Parties are open to the public, and all ages and levels are invited to attend. There is a group class right before to review old patterns or learn new ones. We play music from oldies to current hits you may hear on the radio, and the dances range from basic ballroom to salsa, argentine tango and international styles.
Saturday Social Parties are for beginning and social students. These parties start with a free dance class to review two of the 6 major dances. The music stays within the 6 major dances throught the evening and we provide a “cheat sheet” on each table to help you learn which dance goes with which song. Advanced dancers are also welcome, we just ask you to stay within the bronze syllabus.
