This Week at Cape Ballroom:
Friday, September 17th - Dance with Waltz Lesson.
Come to Cape Ballroom this Friday, September 17th, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Waltz the night away!
The dance begins at 7:00 p.m. sharp, with a 30-minute lesson in the Couples’ Latin Salsa.
The Waltz got its name from the German word “walzen,” which means “to turn”. Waltz is a ballroom dance for couples in 3/4 time with strong accent on the first beat, in which two dancers travel in triple time as they turn together counterclockwise around the line of dance. The Waltz is a smooth circling combined with a forward movement around the line of dance. Characterized by its "rise and fall" action, and swing and sway, the Waltz includes a step, slide, and step to the count of 1, 2, 3.
The lesson will be followed by dancing to many styles of music, until 9:00pm. Electric Slide and Cupid Shuffle line dances included.
Just $5/person at the door.
Dance Partners/Couples Only.
No smoking. No alcohol. Water available. Bring your own snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.
