Ballroom Dance

Instructor: Gail Stevens
This September, why not fall into the slow, sensuous rhythms of Bolero and the slightly perkier rhythms of American Rumba as we continue with our American Ballroom Dance series. Both dances originated in the Caribbean and came to us in the early 50's via Big Band Leaders from Cuba, such as Xavier Cougat and Perez Prado.  The American style Rumba uses a box base, has an upbeat, medium Latin rhythm and features fun, connected patterns involving rotations, crossovers, and underarm turns.  The Bolero is a lilting slow-quick-quick dance rhythm in itself.  The word Bolero is related to the Spanish verb to fly and combines the grace of Waltz, the sensuality of Argentine Tango and the intimacy of Latin based dances.  No partner necessary. For more information, please contact the instructor at gpstev@yahoo.com prior to enrolling.

Class Fees: $105 (8 Classes) Drop-In Fee: $15

Beginning Hula (ages 18+)

Instructor: Dominique Del Chiaro
Hula  is an integrated dance of poetry, rhythm, and movement using the  dancer’s body for storytelling. This graceful, sensuous hula is a dance  that helps trim the waistline, strengthen the back, and improve  strength, flexibility, and balance. It is a low-impact form of dance and  although disciplined it is easy to have enjoyment and success with only  a few lessons. In this class you’ll learn basic steps, chants, and full  hula dances. Each class builds on prior classes and all classes include  some repetition and review. No prior experience is required for  Beginning Hula. Bring water, a pa’u skirt or sarong and your Aloha  spirit! For more information, please contact the instructor at  dominiquedelchiaro@icloud.com prior to enrolling.
