What we're about

The Twin Cities Ballroom Swing Salsa Dance Connection MeetUp will be a little different than most MeetUp Groups. It mostly will serve as a sort of "Central Casting" for Twin Cities Area Dance events. Most MeetUps scheduled will not have an organizer in attendance. There will be no particular person who will be facilitating introductions or connections of the YES RSVPs from this MeetUp. Instead the goal is to make members of the Twin Cities Dance community aware of Dance events around town. Allow them to show interest in events with RSVPs and facilitate their own connections and introductions with others while attending.

The MeetUp will principally focus on partner dancing events, but expect a few performance events to find their way onto the event list as well. Members who RSVP will be able to leverage each other to find Dance Partners or maybe even coordinate buying tickets together for a performance event using the Comment section or the MeetUp Forum.

As a side effect of this "no organizer" format, expect overlapping events. When I have organized for other MeetUps I have been careful not to post conflicting events. For this MeetUp I am going to try to give a comprehensive list of dance options and not worry if the schedules overlap.

Four Seasons Dance Studio

Class Description: Introduction to East Coast Swing, single and triple time. Instructor: Don DeBoer Salsa - Danced on Salsa music, Salsa dance has a recurring eight-beat pattern. With the influences from many Cuban dances, such as Mambo, Rumba, and Cha-Cha, Salsa dance is characterized by many turn combinations. As a spot dance, a dancing couple occupies a fixed area on the dance floor. In some cases, people dance Salsa in solo mode. Cost: $10.00 MeetUp Note: Four Seasons has very affordable Drop In class prices. Cheaper than any other studio in town that I am aware of. In addition to the low $10.00 drop in price you can buy a package of 5 for $40.00 ($8.00 each). Additionally on nights where two classes are offered back to back you can take both for only $15.00 ($7.50 each).
