Ballroom Dance

This term we will teach the East Coast Swing (also known as Triple Step Swing). This fun, exciting and versatile dance can be danced to a wide variety of music such as rock and roll, country, oldies, disco and the top hits of today. Triple Step Swing is excellent training for footwork. We will start with the basic triple step and beginning variations as we work our way through the East Coast Swing bronze level syllabus.

What could be more fun than participating in a Latin-inspired, calorie-buring dance party-exercise program? Nothing! Zumba is it! Latin music is motivating which adds to the popularity of this program. This semester's class will be calorie-buring, but not as hectic. Toning will be incorporated in the movements thus making it a little slower-paced. Sandy will combine dance steps, unique moves and comfortable combinations. The hour will go by quickly as you tone, dance, become healthier and happier.
