“Kick Start” pre-dance Group Classes
Our “Kick-Start” pre-Ballroom group classes are designed to jump-start your Ballroom dancing. Whether you are a total beginner or a “rusty” seasoned dancer, this class will be good for you. “Kick’Start” classes offer you accelerated learning over a period of two weeks. Class meets twice per week.
Because all our work in these classes is solo, you DO NOT NEED A PARTNER. Over years we’ve noticed that it really helps dancers to work on basic things by themselves. That makes sense; you have to know how to do something before you get to do it with a partner. Working on basics of Ballroom dancing really helps you once you have to dance with a partner. Therefore, in “Kick-Start” classes we will focus on learning and executing simple steps by ourselves.
The oldest and best known of all Ballroom dances. Waltz is a progressive dance that features a lovely, elegant rise-and-fall action, ¾ time music and a 1-2-3 rhythm.
This smooth and elegant dance had its beginnings in a New York theatre in 1914. There, a vaudeville actor named Harry Fox began dancing a series of trotting steps to ragtime music as a part of his act. Foxtrot has smooth gliding steps with a heel lead, controlled movement and an easygoing look. The foxtrot is an all-purpose dance that can be performed to many different styles of music.
Cha-Cha originated in Cuba and evolved from a slow version of Mambo called “Triple Mambo”. Cha-Cha is a lively, fun, cheeky and playful dance. It is a non-progressive dance that emphasizes Cuban motion, distinguished by the chasses (cha-cha-cha) typically danced during the 4&1 counts of the music.
Rumba is universally recognized as the "dance of love", distinguished by it's romantic feel. It is danced to slow, sensual music with a Latin beat and features a hip action known as “Cuban Motion.” Continuous, flowing Cuban motion which gives Rumba its sensual look. .
