Beginners Level

The Basic Beginners Class was developed for those who have never had any kind of ballroom dance instruction. This class rotates through an eight week cycle of instructions in the basic steps and timing of the dances with a different dance each week based on the schedule above. Students may also return to this class if they feel the need to brush up on their basic steps and timing.

Instructor:
Class Rep: Connie Rives

$10.00/person/class


Bronze I Level

After completing the eight week Basic class, student may move into the Bronze I class. This class reaffirms the basic steps and increases your repertoire of steps for each dance. Instruction consists of 1 or 2 dances per month with new steps and improvement in timing and technique. Once a student feels comfortable with the different styles of dance they may then test out of Bronze I and move up to the next level Bronze II.

Instructor: Doug Shafner
Class Rep: Paul Miller

Temporary $10 Per Person


Bronze II / Silver Levels

Bronze II level instruction will add additional new steps to each of the dances, provide the student with advanced techniques for moving around the dance floor, improving existing dance steps from Basic to the current level, and focus on their ability to lead and follow. Many students will stay in this class for a few years before they feel comfortable enough to test and move up to the Silver / Gold level.
