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.
