Ballroom Dance, Beginner

Students get a unique opportunity to learn both Latin and American Ballroom in one class! Latin Ballroom is one of the hottest dance crazes to hit the U.S.; it’s fun, romantic and a great form of exercise. Cruises, nightclubs, weddings, reunions and parties are always more fun when you are dancing, and American Ballroom Dance is a perfect ice breaker. At any social event, the sight of a great dancer moving to a captivating beat is simply irresistible, and now you too can step into that light with confidence. No partner or prior dance experience necessary. In Session I students learn all the basics in Foxtrot, Swing, Salsa and Merengue. In Session II students learn all the basics in Waltz, Rhumba, Cha Cha and Tango.

Are you ready to be cool? If so, the Swing is a “must learn” dance. The dance was created by dance studios including the Arthur Murray dance studios in the 1940s, based on the Lindy Hop. For those who want to learn only Swing, we will be reviewing the foundation and adding more moves, including the triple step. It will be more technical than the foundation class.

Just Once Piano on a Summer Evening

$25

with Don Pride

Calendar Jul 11, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

You don’t need years of weekly lessons to learn piano. In just a few hours, you can learn enough secrets of the trade to give you years of musical enjoyment. How do we do it? While regular piano teachers teach note reading, piano professionals use chords. And you can learn all the chords you’ll need to play any song in this one session. Any song. Any style. Any key. If you can find middle C and know the meaning of Every Good Boy Does Fine, you already know enough to enroll in this workshop. What better way to spend your summer than making music on your piano! Required materials fee of $29 for workbook and code for practice download is collected in class by the instructor. No discounts.

Summer Fun Guitar Class

$72

with Randy Lindsey

Calendar Jul 2, 2018 at 5:30 pm, runs for 8 weeks

This semester, along with proper technique, we will focus on just a few chords, rhythm patterns, and single notes to accompany a few songs. Beginners and those more experienced will be playing different parts, some at a very easy level. This will prepare new guitarists for Fall semester to continue building skills and will be a vehicle for others to solidify theirs. I will also assess the ease of playing of your instrument. So, get a set of new strings, practice what you have been playing, or start pretending to play, and come learn to play some Summer Fun Songs. We'll be like a guitar orchestra! New students - $20 materials fee paid to the instructor on the first night of class.
