Partner 101 (intro) w/sarah
Feb: Thursdays 7:30-8:30p
Mar: Thursdays 6:30-7:30p
You want to learn to dance, but don't know where to start? Perfect. There are many beautiful dances out there to learn, but sometimes just the fundamentals of how to move with rhythm and grace with another person are enough. Sometimes getting just the foundations of the most popular partner dances out there are enough to fuel your new love affair with dancing...here's how it goes:
The goal of this series is for students to learn to utilize the most user friendly and effective aspects of partner dancing, using techniques found in Bachata, Night Club 2-Step, Salsa, Swing, and Tango (among other dances!). Burgeoning dancers will learn all there is to learn about connection, how to step in rhythm with another, how to find rhythm in all kinds of songs, and how to look good doing it.
What's the biggest take-away from this course? You will learn how to love, not fear, dancing. This class is great for couples looking for a romantic way to learn something new, or for singles looking to learn something new and meet new people! No prior dance experience required. No partner necessary. And bring YOUR iPod! We will dance to anything!

Partner 101 Workshop [intro/beg] w/Sarah
2/25 SAT 3:30-6:30p $45 in studio, $40 online
You want to learn to dance, but don't know where to start? Perfect. There are many beautiful dances out there to learn, but sometimes just the fundamentals of how to move with rhythm and grace with another person are enough. This 3 hour workshop will focus on lead/follow technique that are universal, and the mechanics of traveling, turning, and moving as one. Students will learn how to find and keep a beat, and how to taylor each dance to the particular style of song they are dancing to and how to work with their own natural dance skills. This is not a ballroom course where you learn 'forms' and strict patterns. This class is about learning how to dance in any context with another person. Students leave this workshop not just being the masters of their own dance, but the creators as well. It is a valuable life skill!
What's the biggest take-away from this workshop? You will learn how to love, not fear, partner dancing. This class is great for anyone looking to hone their partner dance skills without having to choose a specific dance style to master.
*Please bring your favorite music! We will dance to anything!
