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.
Currently (October 2016) we're teaching Beginning and Intermediate Viennese Waltz. The 2 levels run simultaneously (take your pick) beginning at 6:30, then the dance is at 7:30. For more details on our classes week to week, sign up for our email list, below. Monday drop-in classes are just $5!
Also, on 1st and 3rd Sunday afternoons: a 2-hour workshop in Stripped-down Tango. You want this; an amazing dance in itself, very easy to learn, and a way of blending tango into other kinds of dancing you do, to any kind of music you like. Any tango you already know or learn in the future will fit right in. Read more.
