What we're about

We are a group dedicated to the revival and promotion of social and partner ballroom dance through education, practice, and social gatherings in a comfortable group setting. There are many groups dedicated to other singular styles such as Salsa, Swing and Contemporary, our concentration is on the traditional Ballroom Standard (Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Quick Step, Viennese Waltz), Latin (Cha-Cha, Rumba, Bolero, Swing, Mambo), and sometimes may include social club dances (Merengue, Salsa, and others). If you are not experienced, that's OK but you must understand you can't learn any of these properly in one or two classes. A series lasts 4 to 8 weeks and, as we build week to week, no new members after the first week. This group is not intended to promote other organizations or businesses but to develop and encourage the enjoyment of social partner dance.

We require you to use your real name (first name at least) and a current head shot photo of just you. You can't be anonymous and dance!! If you join, we ask that you take two polls under "More" above to let us know what dance styles you want to learn and when you're available.

Beginner Cha-Cha – It’s classic and it’s modern
The term comes from Haiti and refers to the part of a bell that made a “cha-cha” noise when rubbed, but the dance itself evolved from the rumba and the mambo. A Cuban composer named Enrique Jorrin slowed the music down, and the “cha-cha-cha” was born. By 1953, several of his songs were hits, and the cha-cha became a sensation. Now it’s the perfect style for Santana, Michael Jackson, Shawn Mendez, and David Bowie.
This is a 4 week series starting May 5. No new Students without approval after that date. No partner required but we cannot guarantee a partner. No refund or credit after the series starts if a partner is not available. I will update the class balance regularly as this is cross listed. The Recreation Department can tell you if there are extra students you might dance with.

This class is run by the Mount Horeb Recreation Department and you MUST register with them. Fees are listed on their website.
