What we're about

I'm creating this group for all who want to enjoy partnered dance, but know absolutely nothing about dancing...

While this is a series of Group Dance Lessons For The Beginner, it's also just me wanting to invite others to experiment with a different approach to learning partnered dance... Rather than focus on learning one style of dance, we're going to approach this from learning how to find the count in the music and then how that count translates into beginner level steps used in most popular dances... Most existing dance classes teach moves... We're going to focus on connection... Lead & Follow...

Dance is just walking together, in sync, to the rhythm in the music...

This is what our group will be focusing on...
For the lead, we'll learn basic frame for hand-hold and closed dance styles, how to find the count, relax and just guide their follow...
For our follows, we'll also learn basic frame, what to do with your left arm and that the leads "only purpose" is to make you look good... So no driving please...

We're an everyone dances with everyone crowd... There are no mistakes... We all goof and learn together... This is my first time teaching also... After a few of these meetups, you'll know the basics used in most partnered dance and can then "Follow your Feet" to the dance styles and locations that interest you... The Greenville area has many to choose from...

We meet 1st & 3rd Wednesdays at the Sears Shelter building at McPherson Park "many dance groups meet here"... Located at 100 East Park Ave. Greenville, SC...
The next two are May 16th & June 6th
Doors open @ 7:00 - Lesson 7:15-9:00ish
Participation Fee $7.00/person - Cash Only Please...

I recommend shoes that let you feet slide more easily and ladies, comfortable and "closed toe" please... Protect the tootsies... Guys, any leather sole works perfectly for dance...
