While considered one of the most sophisticated of dances today, the Waltz was thought to be quite scandalous when it was first danced in the middle of the Eighteenth Century. For a time, it was even banned by Papal Decree! Fortunately for us, the Waltz survived to be one of the oldest ballroom dances today. The movement of the waltz is slow and gliding and it is danced to some of the most beautiful music.
This class will include 1 hour of instruction with 30 minutes of free dance to practice your newly learned moves!
What to Wear: Dress comfortably for movement. Please wear sneakers, tennis shoes, or soft-heeled shoes. No flip flops or hard-heeled shoes.
Why take a couples dance class?
- Dancing with your significant other is good for your heart, and we mean that both physically and romantically!
- It’s a great excuse for a date night! Treat yourself to a nice dinner afterward.
- Learn some moves that you can show off at the next wedding or night on the town. You don’t have to learn lifts or even a choreographed number, just pick up some basic ballroom skills to help you look like you know what you’re doing on the dance floor.
- It’s fun! Feeling silly and laughing is part of the process. But you’ll find yourself building confidence as you nail those moves!
Not part of a couple? Not to worry! You can bring anyone — you just need a dance partner for this class. Keep your eyes peeled for future dance classes where having a partner is not necessary.
About the Instructor:
Barnaly Pande teaches a range of different dance styles, though her passion is for the elegant ballroom and energetic Latin American dances (think: Dancing With The Stars.) She loves teaching people to dance for the first time but some of her own students have, like her, gone on to achieve national titles.
Students love Barnaly!
“We just attended the Salsa class. Barnaly did an excellent job! She was fun, patient, and encouraging of us novices and we actually learned how to dance.”
– Gwynnae Bird, Salsa student, 5/20/18
