There are two rooms, and three different levels of classes on Thursdays.
The beginner/easy lesson is at 12 Noon and it costs $7 per person. This is a very good lesson. Lessons are usually taught by TJ and Ralph
At about 12:40PM Susan plays some music in the front room so the Intermediate and Advanced groups can warm up.
From 1:10PM untill 2:30PM there is an Intermediate lesson in the back room. (Usually taught by TJ and Ralph.)
The intermediate lesson, as well as the practice time, will cost you $7.
The Advanced lessons are usually taught by Susan and Alex. They run from 1PM until 2:30PM in the front room. The Advanced lesson is $8
NO PARTNER IS NECESSARY for any of these group lessons because partners will rotate often so everyone gets a chance to dance.
This is an unusual opportunity in that a beginner can come on Thursday afternoons and remain at that level until he/she is comfortable enough to want to move to the Intermediate level. Then he can do both the beginner level, and the Intermediate level until he feels secure enough to do just the Intermediate level. If he gets bored at the Intermediate level, he can then move on to the Advanced level. (With those of us who have been dancing here for decades.) I plan on coming to In-Step every Thursday afternoon until the day I die!
You have full control of how quickly you change levels. Remember that 99% of Americans never get past the Beginner level. That means that if you learn all that Silke and Ralph can teach on in the 12Noon lessons,-- You will be in the Top one Percentile of the best Ballroom Dancers in the world!
One of my few regrets in dancing is that I did not stay with Square Dancing, (Which I loved.), longer than I did. I will never again walk away from something I still love, just because others say I should, "MOVE UP".
Note that these lessons have a good turn out and there is seldom enough parking in the lot adjacent to the building.
If you are young, (At heart.), and healthy, please consider parking across the street in the lot by the bank, or the one by the health club so that those who are a little older can have the spots in the lot.
