(attend the class that fits your age & ability best)


KIDS’ CLASS

This 30-minute class is designed for youngsters ages 7 - 10 and will be taught by our Assistant Teachers (who have been trained to teach by Curt & Wendy). This class will introduce partner-dancing to the younger set. They will learn the concept of lead & follow and the importance of a good dance frame, while learning basic steps in many ballroom  dance styles.


BEGINNING TEENS

This 50-minute class is for ages 11 - 18 who are new to ballroom dancing, and will be taught by Curt & Wendy, plus a rotating Assistant Teacher. This is the place to start, when you are new to our classes, to get all of your basics fully in place. Eight different styles of dance will be taught over the course of eight months. We prefer that the younger teens stay in this class for two years; older teens may move to the Intermediate Class after one year, if they feel confident with the basics taught in this class.


INTERMEDIATE TEENS

This 50-minute class is for ages 12 - 18, who have completed at least one year in the Beginning class and feel confident that they know all of the basics well.  The class will be taught by Miah Daniel, Spenser Thompson, Melissa Halbert, & William Priola, all trained to teach by Curt & Wendy. Here, the students will move beyond the basics into more complex step patterns, all while learning floor-craft (the ability to maneuver around a crowded dance floor) and perfecting their lead & follow.  For a good share of teens, this class will be as far as you will wish to go.  All steps will be lead-able, and this will be a fun class, giving you lots of variations.


ADVANCED TEENS

This class is for accomplished dancers only, who have the ability and willingness to go further with their dancing. The step patterns will be more complicated and this class will take you to the next level in your dance education. Do understand that in this class you will be expected to work hard and pay attention. This will generally be a smaller class, but you’ll learn how to step out and make your dance movements larger, so we will still utilize the full floor. This class will be taught by Curt & Wendy Johnson, with an additional Assistant Teacher, if needed. You no longer have to be “invited” to attend this class, as in past years, but please only attend this hour if you are serious about furthering your dance education.



SPECTATORS:  We are choosing to re-vamp our class schedules this year in an attempt to keep the studio less noisy during classes. With our new format of 50-minute classes followed by a 10-minute passing time, we hope this will help. All classes will now have the full studio floor for their class, with the exception of the first half hour of the Kids’ Class and the Beginner Teens (when the Kids’ class will take up one-third of the ballroom with the Teen Beginners getting two-thirds, then morphing into the full floor once the Kids’ Class is done).  If you have children waiting on the sidelines for their class to begin, please impress upon them how important it is to visit QUIETLY while other classes are in session. This has truly been our largest hurdle, and we need all of the parents to support us in this quest.  Thank you!
