Beginner 1 Waltz - at The Dance Space
Calling all non-dancers and new-dancers or people who just want to refresh their ballroom skills! The Thursday 7pm Beginner 1 class at The Dance Space will get you started on the dance floor. No prior experience is needed. Partners are not needed. Singles, mixed-sex couples and same-sex couples are all welcome. The class is 45 minutes long and will cover one Ballroom or Rhythm dance each week. This week is the dance is Waltz. It will cover technique such as dance frame, one or two basic steps and an understanding of the Waltz rhythm. Each following week we will rotate among the six basic Ballroom dances. The current schedule is: 09/27 - Waltz 10/04 - Swing 10/11 - Tango 10/18 - Hustle 10/25 - Foxtrot 11/01 - Rumba No special apparel required, just wear comfortable clothes, however we do need to talk about footwear. To take advantage of the wonderful wood floor you will need comfortable smooth-soled shoes. Flip flops and sneakers won't work with the former not staying on your feet and the latter sticking to the floor. Ballroom, jazz or character shoes are perfect, but are NOT required. Any comfortable shoe, that holds to your foot and has minimal "stick", will work fine. We have and introductory cost of only $5/person for September and October.

We meet regularly to learn beginner and intermediate ballroom dancing and to practice our dance skills at different venues around the Richmond Metro area.

Ballroom Dance is a wonderful way to get exercise. It’s a great way for singles to meet and for couples to have fun together.
