Dancing ballroom and swing?


Walter Teike

Have you ever wanted to dance? Of course, you have at some time. You attend a dinner/dance and watched others dancing, having fun. Here it is, another New Year and you still are not dancing. Why haven’t you? No time, afraid or two left feet. You can dance if you are shown how. If you can walk, you can dance. In fact, I know people in wheelchairs that dance. We can have you dancing in a short time—why not you, why not dance?

It is our goal to have our SaddleBrooke residents dancing, having fun, getting exercise and enjoying the intimate moment of holding each other. Why Not Dance of SaddleBrooke provides the opportunity to learn basic dance steps in the following: Fox Trot, Waltz, Tango, Cha Cha, Rumba and Swing.

These six dances will allow you to dance most dances at any dance venue you attend. Small groups of no more than eight give you the opportunity to learn more quickly. Private lessons can also be given on request. Once you feel comfortable with dancing, you will consider dancing with the SaddleBrooke Ballroom Dance Club or the Latin Rhythms Dance Club. Now you will have further lessons and be able to socialize with other SaddleBrooke dancers.

Our Dance schedule is as follows:

Tuesdays in the SaddleBrooke One ballroom from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., Group/private lessons; 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. private lessons
