 Learn to dance like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers in this smooth introduction to The great Ballroom dances! This intro to Foxtrot and Waltz, will give you a great head start! You will learn to relax and feel at ease on any dance floor! This is also a wonderful introduction to popular dances used at weddings and formal events.
  This 6 week series features 3 weeks of Foxtrot and 3 weeks of Waltz.
Beginners and singles welcome, no partner needed.
The Waltz dates back to the early 1800's and was danced in Vienna first by the peasants and later by high society in the royal courts! This dance is characterized by smooth, gliding steps and "rise and fall," a lilting movement that flows to 3/4 time. Modern waltz is quite beautiful and much slower than Viennese, so most students find it easy to to learn. 
The ever-popular Foxtrot made "Harry Fox" a star and sent thousands of people rushing onto the dance floor for the first time in 1914!  The Foxtrot is characterized by smooth, gliding, elegant moves to 4/4 time and chants of "Slow-Quick-Quick"!

What our clients are saying...


“Helen Andrade of Steppin' Out Dance studios is a patient and excellent dance teacher. Her ability to show the dance steps from both the "leader's" perspective and the "follower's" perspective was extremely helpful when learning dance steps. I have enjoyed dancing for years and needed to overcome some bad habits (leading when I should be following). I learned that "following" is about trust, something I never thought about in all my years of dancing. Helen is truly a gifted teacher. I look forward to many more classes at Steppin' Out Dance studio.”
