If music causes your heart to beat 1,250 times a minute, it could be the beautiful hummingbird inside you trying to dance out.... or you could be having a real massive coronary.

DANCING TRICKS and TREATS


I knew Halloween had arrived when a lady sporting purple hair, cheek piercings, a dog collar and go-go boots walked by the studio. If only it had been October.

Well, Halloween is here, and with it comes a Season’s change and brand, new dance workshops starting October 29th.

$5 PRACTICE NIGHT 8-9:30PM – October 19th & November 2nd

THE LATIN WORKOUT – ONGOING ON THURSDAYS 4PM

The Latin Workout continues to burn calories Thursdays at 4pm. What exactly is this class? It’s a dance exercise class that includes the Merengue, Salsa, Cha-Cha, Jive & Triple-Time Swing, Samba, and Rumba. We even throw in a muscle isolation exercise and end with a cool down stretch. You will take about 5,500 steps in this one-hour class, so be ready to sweat and have a great time. Each session costs $14, or you can purchase a 6-Pack for $65.

MONDAYS STARTING OCTOBER 29TH

SALSA 7-8pm $65 for 6 weeks –Now a Monday regular, Salsa kicks off the new session at 7pm. This Latin dance continues to be one of our most popular classes. Beginners are welcome as we always start off with the basic steps before kicking in high gear with spicier amalgamations, making this also a favorite with our more advanced dancers.

AB301 8-9pm $65 for 6 weeks – This one hour class is especially designed for the experienced social dancer (post-AB201) ready to learn Continuity Style Ballroom dancing. The focus of this workshop is to improve dancer’s floorcraft and ability to navigate dance traffic through step substitutions. Permission is required for this class.

TUESDAYS STARTING OCTOBER 30TH

ARGENTINE TANGO @ 7-8pm $65 for 6 weeks –This dance is always so popular that a single 6-week session is never enough. Returning dancers can take what they learned in the last session and blend it with upcoming new material. Argentine Tango Part II is designed so first time ‘Tangonistas’ are welcome.

WEDNESDAYS STARTING OCTOBER 31ST

AB101 @ 5:30pm-7pm $85 for 6-Weeks – This is our Genesis Project, where stellar dancers are born. It’s one thing to be good on the dance floor, but it’s another thing to have to dance attached to another body. The Adult Basic 101 is the class where you learn to play nice with others while dance the basics in the Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Swing, and Salsa. Couples dancing truly is the last bastion of human contact.

THURSDAYS STARTING NOVEMBER 1ST

AB201 @ 7pm-8:30pm $85 for 6-Weeks – This second level workshop covers the remainder of the Bronze syllabus and introduces more technique and more sophisticated patterns to post-101 dancers. It is designed to be taken 5-6 times, so each 6-week session is different. Welcome 101 grads, you made it!

INTERNATIONAL QUICKSTEP @ 8:30pm $65 for 6 Weeks – The Peabody, Charleston, and Foxtrot walk into a Ragtime Bar and came out Quickstepping. That was in 1927 and they haven’t stopped since. Quickstep music is fast and bouncy and demands equally energetic footwork. With hops, runs, and locks, Quickstep might be described as racing to music where everyone wins.
