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 below. 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 move into the Bronze I class. This class reaffirms the basic steps learned in the prior basic class 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. After about a year, students take a test in the different dances before proceding on to the next level.

Instructor: Doug Shafner
Class Rep: Paul Miller

$12.00/Member - $15.00/Non-Member / class


Bronze II / Silver Levels

After passing the test to move out of Bronze I, the students at this level will add several additional steps to their repertoire and focus more on dancing technique. Students will focus on improving their ability to lead and follow while staying in time with the music. It generally takes between 1 and 2 years to progress out of this class at which time the students must once again pass a test in order to move to the next level
