Although our group lessons are the best way to solidly enforce the Basic Steps, our
Friday Night Beginner Ballroom BootCamp
is another alternative.
This is the Drill:
Every Friday Evening we will be teaching, in rotation, the five most popular Ballroom Dance Styles, which are Waltz, Cha Cha, Foxtrot, Rumba and Tango. Our highly trained, Dance Instructors will also rotate each week, so that you can benefit from what each has to offer.
The evening will begin at 7:00, with a 30 minute Basic Beginner Lesson, followed by a Practice Session, for 30 minutes, when we will play a mix of these five popular Dance Styles. At 8:00 we will begin our second Lesson, in a different Dance Style, again followed by a 30 minute Practice Session. A Schedule of the Dance Style being taught, in upcoming weeks, is on the back of this page. Admission is $15 per night or a Ten Week Pass is available for $100.
At 9:00pm we will do a Mixer, when everyone comes out on the Dance Floor, rotates and switches Dance Partners, 8 to10 times, throughout the playing of two full songs. You do NOT have to participate, but most Dancers do. They know that Mixers are a great way to meet new Dancers. In addition, dancing with different partners helps you to improve your Lead and Follow.
It is during this Mixer that we will open the Dance to our More Advanced Dancers, who we strongly encourage to join in and possibly help you with a step or two. They will have a Discounted Admission of $10.
If you are uneasy, staying after 9pm, we understand. You will feel more comfortable as you progress. However, keep in mind that you can learn a lot, just by watching. Remember that, no one is here to Judge you, only to help. We were all Beginners once and we know how much you need our support and encouragement. You will soon find that the Ballroom Dance Community, especially here at The Promenade, is a very warm and welcoming one.
