BALLROOM 911: RUMBA WORKSHOP!
"Help! I need to learn to dance!"
Cost: $15 per person
Pre-registration & payment: In order for this workshop to take place, we need a minimum of 12 students to sign up and pay one week prior to the workshop. You may pre-register and pay by going to Spectrum Wellness Center or by calling their front desk at[masked]-0381. If we do not meet the minimum required amount of students by November 17th, the week before the workshop, we will have to cancel and your money will be refunded. (We fully expect to have enough students, as long as everyone that expressed interest and said that they will be coming is able to follow through.) Also, if this workshop is a success, we will be happy to offer more ballroom dance workshops in the future, so please make plans to attend and don't forget to pre-register by paying for this workshop asap!
Description: Our meetup poll showed that the majority of people that want to attend this workshop are interested in learning rumba. This was a great choice because we will be playing a lot of social, rumba music at our New Year's Eve party at the Fine Arts Center and, also, this is one of the dances that will be included in this year's dance contest!
This workshop is for both beginning and experienced rumba dancers. We will be dividing everyone into two groups, Richard will teach the class for beginners and Debbie will teach the class for experienced dancers.
Singles and couples are welcome to attend. You do not need to have a partner and you do not need to have any prior dance experience. Come to have fun and meet others who enjoy learning to dance! And, please be sure to RSVP on our meetup calendar, so others can see who is coming and they will want to come too!

9:45am-10:00am Check-in and warm-ups (for everyone)
Note: If this is your first time at Spectrum Wellness Center, you will need to fill out the routine paperwork that Spectrum requires of everyone.
10:00am-10:15am Intro to American Rumba (for everyone)
10:15am-11:15am We will divide into two groups, beginners and experienced dancers. Beginners will work on the basics of rumba, such as the box step and fun, social patterns. Experienced dancers will work on learning intermediate-to-advanced patterns with proper arm styling and Latin hip motion.
11:15am-11:30am Everyone will come back together and we will review what both groups learned in this workshop.
Make plans to attend this workshop and learn the very, romantic and sexy rumba!
