Ballroom By Request Lessons and Practice Time

Hi Members, for those of you who want to learn or practice, this is a great event. We work with the level of those who attend. We will start with teaching/reviewing the basics and progress through as many moves as time allows. All are welcome! Please introduce yourself so we can welcome our Meetup members. During practice time, Joe plays music for all the ballroom dances, and takes requests. Dances this week are swing and foxtrot.

8:00 – 8:45, beginner/intermediate level lesson in a Rhythm dance,
- 15 minutes for practice/snack/water break
9:00 – 9:45, beginner/intermediate level lesson in Smooth dance
10:00-11:00 Open Dancing
11:00: “So long, farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, goodnight”

Hosted by seasoned teachers/musicians/dancers/performers Joe and Julie Donato.
Joe started this unique format four years ago in Philadelphia. He designed "Ballroom By Request" as a unique place where people can come and learn how to do all those great dances they see on "Dancing with the Stars," at any social event/party/wedding reception where popular music is being played.

No membership required! All skill levels catered to! No partner necessary!

$10 for one lesson, $15 for both lessons. Fruit, chocolate & water at no extra charge!
