American Waltz: An Elegant Dance for Couples Featuring Turns and Twinkles                                   

Friday                                  AD172022           

11:00-12:00                        

July 14, 21, 28, August 4, 11, 18, 25

Instructor(s): Bill Busch

The American Waltz is an elegant dance for couples featuring turns and twinkles. As with every new season, we will start with basic step patterns the first week or two because without the correct basics, a couple’s progress is very limited. Please, no footwear (like flip-flops) that can slide off easily. Also, in order to lessen fatigue as well as the likelihood of a foot or ankle stress fracture, footwear should be smooth (well worn) on the sole in the area of the ball of the foot. Students should be prepared to begin each class promptly at 11AM. Please note: students must pre-arrange a partner for this class in order to register and participate. Sign up for this dance class and have some fun!
