Is the smoothest of the smooth! This light, lively, infatuating rhythm has been vocalized and harmonized by the best pipes that ever put their lips to a microphone! The music is timeless and will remain so, as long as lovers can drift through a park on a Sunday or swoon and spoon at the local watering hole on Saturday night. Some call it Jazz, some call it Swing, some call it Standard, and some call it Pop – I call it pure American. Foxtrot speaks to every boy and girl or man and women about every facet of their relationship! Come join us out on the floor – Top Hat and Tails no longer required but dancing feet and a good crooner are a must. The lyrics used in Foxtrot rhythms make it a popular choice for wedding couples. You must learn Foxtrot for attendance at Weddings, Fundraisers, general social functions, and dinner and dancing.
The following video is comprised of the actual 5 – 7 dance steps that you will learn immediately in your first several hours of instruction in Foxtrot. Your progression and learning curve will be based on your coordination, frequency of lessons, and practice.
As a social dance, Tango is a means of recreation, creativity, and enjoyment for a lifetime. There are no sociological, chronological, or economic boundaries in Tango. In reality, one would be hard pressed to find another activity that depends so heavily on the synchronized physical, emotional, and intellectual cooperation between a man and a woman. Tango requires this togetherness and rewards us with so much more. Passion, excitement, love, anger, romance, and every other sensation between a man and a woman are portrayed in this wonderful dance – the Tango. Tango dancing is both theatrical and eccentric. It is the chosen dance for many leading men and women of the theater and on the silver screen. Tango is not a difficult dance. Therefore these non-dancing actors have actually produced rather good interpretations of Tango. One of my favorite quotations regarding the ease with which a Tango can be danced is Al Pacino speaking to Gabrielle Anwar in the movie “Scent Of A Woman.” “Tango is not like life, my dear. There are no mistakes in Tango. If you get tangled up, you just tango on.” Even though the danced is structured beautifully, within that structure every figure has the potential for its own interpretation. Once the Tango bug has bitten you please consult my book “Quickstart to Tango” for more Tango history, technique, and patterns.

Is the most classical of all ballroom dances. The Waltz is considered by many to be the most foundational experience of ballroom dancing. The type of figures that we use, the dance positions, the line of travel around the dance floor, and the choreography have changed very little in the last 100 years. No other dance can provide the dreamy Cinderella feelings of pure romance in the way that a couple can experience while Waltzing. That is one of the reasons that many couples select a Waltz for the First Dance on their wedding day. In my opinion there is no dance that better portrays the beginning of married life on the wedding day than in dance that began at all! The light but distinct 3/4 timing and tempo are intoxicating and very easy to follow. Waltz will help you develop the skills necessary to become a successful ballroom dancer. After all, the Waltz was and is the model for dance structure and technique.
