Open role dancing
Waltz etcetera has always been affirmative
of open role dancing, although we didn't have that term for it when we
started this dance in 1999. Leading and following are
skills anyone can learn, not genetic pigeonholes people are stuck in.
We encourage everyone to learn both roles, to swap roles freely in
the partnership, and to work toward actually blending the roles into an
instantaneous give and take where no one's sure who's leading and who's
following, which we call Creative
collaboration. It's the best kind of partner dancing there is, just blissful.
dance classes (all classes are drop-in)
at 6:30 pm, right before
our dance. We're currently teaching Beginning and Intermediate Cross-step Waltz.
All levels welcome. For more

- 1st and
3rd Sunday afternoons: a 2½ hour workshop in Stripped-down
You want this; it's the most amazing dance, and very easy to learn. Any
tango you already know or learn in the future will fit right in.
