If you like to move to music and you want to become more spontaneous, improvisational, and creative in your dancing with a partner, that's what we're here for! This group is for people who are new to partner dancing, as well as people who do ballroom, swing, country western, Latin, folk, blues or rock and roll dancing.
• You don't need to have a dance partner. You'll find many nice ones when you come to our events! We welcome flexible gender roles and people of all backgrounds and orientations.
• We hold dances and practice sessions a couple times a week for beginners through advanced dancers. The sessions are taught by Gary Diggs, our local hero and dance expert, who has been teaching a variety of dance styles in Albuquerque for 40 years.
• We teach improvisation and creativity mainly through the medium of cross-step waltz. Cross-step is a form of waltz that allows a vast range of improvisation, expressiveness, and creativity. It is easy to incorporate elements of tango, swing, blues, Latin dance, Irish dance, or virtually any other genre.
Come join us and learn how to release your inner dance spirit!
