Dance Etiquette

Dancing is a fun way to enjoy music, movement (exercise), and time together if the expectations of your partner are understood. If at the beginning, both partners consider the role of the other, a greater appreciation for each other’s efforts is understood.
At first the terminology is like a foreign language, but as we progress each person has a specific role to play to make the experience enjoyable.

Club General Information

Dancing is a wonderful way to exercise, keep your mind sharp, make new friends, and learn something new!
It is the Club members who have donated their time, skills, and interests to ensuring the requirements of the Club have been met. Volunteering for the executive team creates different relationships across classes, allows the individual volunteer to share their expertise as well as perhaps learning new ones.

“Dance like no one is watching, love like you’ve never been hurt; sing like no one is listening, and live like it’s heaven on earth.”
