Ballroom By Request Dance

COST: $12 at the door includes lesson, dance and refreshments. LESSON/THEME DANCE: Samba, taught by Joe Donato. Lesson 8-9 p.m., Dance 9-11 p.m.

Thank you Hudson Valley Community Dances for sponsoring this event!

Joe's Ballroom By Request parties boast: a one-of-a-kind COACHING CORNER. During the dance, the basic step to whatever dance is currently up in the rotation is being taught in a corner just off of the main dance floor!

After the lesson, he provides a great mix of music featuring both classic hits and new songs from a library of diverse artists which is updated regularly. The theme dance of the night is played most frequently, and at least two songs of each dance are played before moving on to the next dance in the rotation. Waltzes, Foxtrots, Tangos (Ballroom and Argentine), Swings (West Coast, Lindy, Jitterbug, Balboas & Charlestons), Cha Chas, Rumbas, Mambos, Salsas, Merengues, Hustles, and Sambas. Joe provides a safe environment where smooth dancers can move around the outside, while rhythm dancers can stay in the center.

    Sorry I won't be able to attend tonight. The unexpected snow threw a wrench into my plans today!

    I was so excited about tomorrow's event, but unfortunately I have to go into the city and won't make it back in time. Tonight's event also looks like fun--I will definitely try to attend next time.
    Thank you, Julie & Joe, for putting on such special events.

    Hi Joe and Julie,
    I received another email from you that you were going to do Tango on Sat. I can't find that email now. I must have deleted it by accident. I did make a hard copy for Rocky. Anyway, which dance are you doing this Sat., Tango or Samba?
