"I do not try to dance better than anyone else. I only try to to dance better than myself." Mikhail Baryshnikov
Contra dancers waltz at break time and after the dance is over and like Mikhail Baryshnikov we only dance to make ourselves happy. Whether you want to learn to waltz or just want to be a happier waltzer please join us for this very short waltz workshop.
We will learn the basics of folk waltzing: footwork to the beat; posture, connection and frame; progression and basic turn in dance direction; and follower's outside turn (if time). This class is not only for beginners but also for people who already waltz who'd benefit from "going back to the basics."
Instructor: Andy Westbom
The lesson will end at 7:20p.m. and at 7:30 a contra dance lesson will begin.
