By RSVPing to this event, you will be signing up for:
• a 1 hour dance lesson in which you will learn the basics of TANGO and DOUBLE-SHUFFLE (8:15pm - 9:15pm)
• half an hour (or more, as you like) to enjoy the "dance party" afterwards (DJ music, people can practice their latin dancing) (9:15pm to 9:45pm or later)
• (Optional) We will go to Kilkenny Irish Pub in Brentwood for a drink/ munchies and chatting - I have reserved a table for 15 (10:00pm+) at 3630 Brentwood Road NW.
Every Friday night, Alberta Dancesport holds a one-hour workshop in various ballroom and latin dances. The workshop begins promptly at 8:15 pm. This week, we will be learning the TANGO and the DOUBLE-SHUFFLE. Dancers of all levels are welcome.
It's OK; many of us are complete beginners! The instructors (world-class competitors themselves) will introduce the basic steps. Then we partner up randomly and practice. Don't worry! Your partner changes about every 30 seconds (If you bring a date, you don't have to change partners if you don't want!). Please note that there will be more than just DSN members there, so you will meet many new people. We will learn 2 dances this way.
**FAQ can be found here.
When the hour lesson is done, the "dance party" begins. The lights go down, the DJ plays some fun latin tunes, and you just "give it a try". The dance party goes on until midnight, but we will only stay for a half hour. If you would like to stay longer you are welcome to.
I have made reservations close by at Kilkenny's pub (right across from the CTrain station at Brentwood) at 10:00pm. This part of the evening is optional. Just let me know if you are coming or not. I have a reservation for 15 people under (David & DSN Meetup).
***Wear shoes that let you dance on a hardwood floor!! Sneakers are the least-practical choice, but if that's all you have, they're fine.
*Here's myself and World Champ Tango dancer Kelly Lannan, back in 2010! I figured I could teach her a few new moves...
Friday June 20, 8:00pm
**Please meet us between 7:45-8:10pm then you will know who we all are. If you come late, then you will have to find us. I will be waiting in the hallway so look for me (I'll wear a black MEETUP t-shirt)! Please give yourself enough time to find parking.
The 1 hour lesson + dance party is $8.00 CASH
(paid to THEM at the door. They DON'T take credit card; Cash only!!!!!)
Then you can pay ME $1 DSN fee.
Your drinks/ munchies at Kilkennys are your responsibility.
