    Waltz and Two-Step   
Beginner Class

        
This is the main "GO TO" fun evening for dancing in the Carleton Place –
Almonte – Kanata – Stittsville – Smiths Falls – Perth area.
It's by far the best way to learn social dance steps.
Be confident and proficient on the dance floor!

Yes, you can! No previous dancing experience is necessary. The steps are taught slowly so that you will feel comfortable with the learning experience. Experienced dancers are there to help you.
All dances are cued. As Jean teaches you the various steps within a waltz or two-step, she puts them together with music and leads you through each step as the music plays.
Use what you learn at social dances. Whenever you go to a dance and hear a waltz or two-step tempo, you’ll be able to get right up on the dance floor with your newly learned steps.
Beginners will enjoy the learning experience in the dedicated one-hour class starting at 7:30 and continuing over 13 weeks.  The teaching program progresses at a comfortable rate through new steps and new dances to build skills and confidence.

Enjoy Dancing with your Partner
This method, called round dance or choreographed-ballroom style, appeals to both couples and singles, but dancers should register as a dance couple.
Waltz and two-step are popular dance rhythms. There is some overlap into ballroom dancing, so participants will find most of their newly learned steps and sequences to be enjoyable in social dancing with popular music.

Dance at your Skill Level
We dance at two levels of dancing skill, which typically corresponds to beginner in the first hour and Phase II – III intermediate levels in the second hour.  The evening finishes with practice dancing to add to the enjoyment and satisfaction of the dancing experience.

Experienced dancers will enjoy a fun evening of round dancing at the Phase II – III level, starting at 8:30.  You will enjoy the first hour to practice your timing and help the beginners, and the second hour to learn new dances in waltz, two-step and rumba.  There is no extra fee for dancing both hours. If you have dancing experience and would like to join us, we would love to hear from you.  Come out to practice your skills and to learn new steps.  Pay-by-night dancers are welcome.

The teaching approach combines new positions and steps in a way that you can progress through new dance skills with your partner in a natural progression – learning new dance steps and mastering full dances more quickly.

Dances include the Golden Classics and other choreographed dances. Dance steps follow the standardized definitions as defined by Roundalab.  These are popular worldwide.
