Claire and I have been asked to teach for NWDance and we are excited to get back to doing what we love!
New Classes – A little something for everyone!
5 Wednesdays: October 27th–November 24th
6:30pm — Beginning Waltz/Cross-step for newer Waltzers
We will start with beginning slow waltz basics and weave in the beautiful and popular slow waltz form known a Cross-step waltz. These basics and turns flow seamlessly together with crossing figures. We will dance these with inspiring music allowing you to discover a new love of waltz. Our music will draw from from a wide spectrum including folk and pop waltzes. Not your grandmothers waltz! Prerequisite- None
7:30pm — Swing 2 — Kicking it up a notch!
You have been dancing swing and taken at least one other swing 2 class. Now we expand on Swing 2 moves, add more complexity, breaks and some 8-count patterns. This class is about stretching a little and a lot of play. Prerequisite- Confidence with triple-time swing
8:30pm — Intermediate/Advanced Cross-step Waltz
You solidly know the basics of cross-step waltz (even if you haven’t danced it for awhile). This class will offer moves that stretch your brain, delight your creative side and will give you a lift on the social dance floor. We will review the basics and then build up moves with free spins, grapevines and more. We will even toss in some new moves created for our Russian friends in St Petersburg and their summer workshop this year! Join us for the fun! Prerequisite- Solid confidence with the cross-step waltz basics.

There is this pandemic thing, so we put our heads together to figure out how to offer safer classes indoors.
So we are requiring KN94, KN95 or N95 masks that are well fitting and snug to the face. All participants must have proof of vaccination. We will also be leaving doors open at the Swedish Cultural Center (lower level)- for cross-ventilation. Bring your sweaters! Finally, if you do not wish to rotate, bring a partner!
We look forward to dancing with you!
