A new Introductory Ballroom class will begin July 30th and will run through August 27th. Here’s your chance to learn some basic movements in Waltz and Cha Cha. Waltz is considered the first ballroom dance since it originated in Europe in the late 1700’s. This dance has continued to rise in popularity throughout the years and is often danced at weddings. Waltz is danced in 3/4 time with the music sending dancers whirling around the floor.
Cha Cha is an exciting, syncopated Latin dance which originated in the 1950’s as a slower version of Mambo. Cha Cha is a derivation of Mambo because of the Latin music, but it is also related to Swing since it is danced to a 1-2-3 step rhythm.
These dances have a special appeal for couples as they do require a partner. So, join us on July 30th and add some romance to your summer!
