10:00-10:45                        

Jan 25, Feb 1, 8, 15

Instructor(s): Bill Busch

This is the oldest and probably the easiest of the "big six" ballroom dances as well as one of the "romance dances." This is a beginner level dance course for couples who have had little to no instruction or experience. 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. Each of the week’s lessons builds on all previous class instructions. Students should be prepared to begin each class promptly at 10AM. Please note: students must pre-arrange a partner for this class in order to register and participate. Students are also welcome to stay and observe the Intermediate Rumba class which follows. Register for this dance class to have some fun!

American Tango

Instructor(s): Bill Busch

This is one of the "Romance Dances" that have not only persisted over many decades, but actually keeps increasing in interest. Although the first week of eight will cover American Tango basics, this is an intermediate level offering and for which you should register only if you have previous Ballroom Dance instruction or experience. 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 1PM. Please note: students must pre-arrange a partner for this class in order to register and participate. Be ready to have some fun!
