Next Meetup

Latin Dance Class, Intermediate/Advanced
Intermediate/advanced latin class at 7:30 p.m. Come and experience Salsa, Mambo, Merengue, Bachata, and the most popular and versatile dance in the world: Cha Cha. Yes, all of these will be covered! You'll discover how to take the moves from any one of these dances and use them in any of the other dances. You'll also learn New York style Salsa ("breaking on the 2"), as well as what the difference is between the "1, 2, 3" and the "2, 3, 4" rhythm. Basic pivot turns, caresses, sweethearts, open breaks and cross body leads will become second nature to you. You'll not only be ready for any salsa dance for the rest of your life, but you'll also be able to use these moves at your next wedding or social event to popular songs you grew up with. Students also have the option of learning Bolero, Rumba and Samba. $90 if you register for a series of 6 classes; $18 to drop in any night.

What we're about

Are you looking for fun, friends and exercise in the Hudson Valley? We created this group to find people who want to explore dances and classes in swing, salsa, ballroom, we love it all! We are Joe and Julie, avid social dancers and teachers. We both lead and follow so if you join up with us for an event, you are assured of at least two dance partners in any new place. Having a group makes it more fun for everyone! We also host a few dances and classes every month that you'll be invited to. We host a few dance weekends away, including trips to dance in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., so let us know of your interest.

If you would like to be on our email list, please send a request to Joe@ballroomjoe.com and you'll receive a weekly email about all of our dance events.

Also keep in mind that since we also post on Facebook and send out emails, the RSVPs for our events in any one group are always lower than the actual turnout! Many people come who do not RSVP anywhere, so come out to an event and dance the night away!
