Country 2 Step:  This is a level for Newcomers to Beg 1/2.  In this month we will cover the basic rhythm, lead/follow and footwork techniques and the following patterns: basic forward, transition forward to backward, right and left turns, dance moves from closed to sweetheart, cuddle, and skaters position with various exits. Great class if you’ve never danced country before. Limit to 20 people.

Country Swing: Learn how to move your swing with a country flare. Lead/follow, timing,a variety of patterns will be covered-no lifts etc. they are not social dance friendly. You’ll find an ease in learning this swing -quickly learn how to swing your partner on the dance floor, great for newcomers!

Explanation of dance level ability:

Newcomer :No experience needed.  A newcomer is a dancer with no previous dance instruction. You will concentrate on learning the basic patterns and lead/follow.  When more information is given do the best you can but during our practice time you should keep reviewing the basic pattern in order to become more confident with it. You will learn basic patterns with emphasis placed on Lead/Follow and timing for the particular dance covered. This is a great time for practice!

Beginner1/2:  Some experience expected.  A beginner dancer that has had some previous training and has knowledge of Lead/Follow, connection, timing and footwork.  When the class moves along you should be able to understand the concepts presented. You will want to work on more  pattern variations, developing a stronger understanding of connection, rhythm and partnering and technique.  You should be practicing flow and continuity of your dancing.  Learning multiple styles of dance will elevate your dancing more quickly.

Beginner/Intermediate: This dancer should have had the basics of the dance taught. Have had experience in leading/following different patterns. You will learn new patterns and how to perfect your techniques and continuity in the dance.

Group classes are open to both singles and couples. I lead and follow as needed.
