Creative Cha Cha Dance for Couples                                    

Friday                                 AD201022          

11:00-12:00                      

Jan 24, 31, Feb 7, 14, 21, 28

Instructor(s): Bill Busch

Cha Cha is an energetic rhythm fun dance that also serves as an excellent cardio workout. During its evolution over more than 60 years, at least three ways have been developed to count or keep the timing of this originally Cuban Dance, but this course will only teach the one that will allow dancers to develop and use the most number of patterns as possible. The basics will be covered in order to create a thorough learning experience. Students should plan to attend all classes since missing any two weeks in a row will greatly diminish the likelihood of learning the dance. Students should be prepared to begin each class promptly at 11AM. Please note: students must pre-arrange a partner (who is also a member) for this course in order to register and participate.
