Halloween Party and Classes in October

Jane Gromelski

Partners Western Dance Club will host a Halloween party on Oct. 31 in the MountainView Ballroom. Wild Ride will play for us. If you can’t dance, come and enjoy Wild Ride as a concert! They will play from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Costumes are optional. We will have a cash bar and Halloween candy! Tickets are $10 per person. Contact me for payment. This should be a great party! We always have a great night when Wild Ride plays.

Our Partners Western Dance Club started dance lessons in mid-October. Every year we are excited to welcome new dancers and experienced dancers back to class.

On Mondays, starting Oct. 24, we will offer Partner Pattern dance classes. These are a fun addition to our basic progressive dances. The lady is on the man’s right in a sweetheart position for many of these dances. We have waltzes, cha chas, swing, and easy dances like the 10 Step. These are great universal dances that can be danced to different songs. We offer introductory dances at 6 p.m. and more advanced dances at the 7 p.m. class. The first class, on Oct. 24, will be in the Vermilion Room in the SaddleBrooke One clubhouse. The next classes will be in the MountainView Ballroom. Please email me if you are interested in these classes. The venue may change.

On Thursdays, starting Oct. 13, we will offer classes on the Arizona 2 Step. Our Beginners class will start at 6 p.m. in the Vermilion Room in the SaddleBrooke One clubhouse. This is a very useful dance. It adjusts to different beats and gets dancers out on the dance floor! This is the most prominent dance step in all the venues in Tucson. At 7 p.m. we will offer the Intermediate Arizona 2 Step. The series will include five classes. Again, the venue may change. Please email me if you would like to take these classes. Stan and I have been teaching here in SaddleBrooke since 2005.

Our Partners Western Dance Club also hosts dances with live music in the MountainView Ballroom. The dates we have for the fall and winter are Nov. 16, Jan. 21, Feb. 25, and March 23. Wild Ride will play for our listening and dancing pleasure. I think they are the best band in Tucson. Dues for our club are $15 per person. Ticket prices for the dances vary. We also have informal DJ dances throughout the year.

We have a fantastic group of dancers in our club. We dance because it is a fun sport and you get to hold your partner in your arms!
