Want to explore the world of social dance? These beginner-friendly series will give you the basics of some of the most popular dances. The first session focuses on American Dance and the second on Latin Dance. We will spend two classes on each style, learning a simple pattern, lead/follow techniques, and how to tell which dance style(s) you can do to different songs. No previous experience is required and you don’t need to bring a partner (leaders and followers will switch partners during class). You will leave class with a list of local dance venues where you can practice your new skills and learn more moves.
These two series are being taught by Emily Fox, who has taught social dance in the Pioneer Valley for over 12 years. She's worked with students of all ages at venues including Dance Northampton, the Hartsbrook School, Paradise Dance, and her studio in Florence, MA. She's known for teaching with humor and patience and specializes in working with beginning students.
Classes meet for one hour once per week for six weeks. Bring someone with you - the second person is half price.
