Partners western dance activities spring 2021: our next series of dance classes will be the Arizona 2 Step and Western Waltz. Classes will start on Wednesday, March 3. We will have six to eight classes in the series. These will be classes held outside, behind DesertView, on the volleyball courts. Our first meeting will be at 2:30 p.m. for beginners. Intermediate classes will start at 3:30 p.m. The Arizona 2 Step is also called the Rhythm 2 Step.

You will need to wear non-marking shoes so we do not damage the court surface.

These are relaxed, fun classes. Please email me if you would like to participate in the classes. We will limit class size to 10 couples. Dancers must be members of the same household. Please wear a mask coming and going, we will be socially distancing while dancing. Bring your own chairs and water also.

On Thursday, March 4, we will start our next series of Partner Pattern dance classes. Beginners start at 2:30 p.m., intermediate classes start at 3:30 p.m. These classes will also be held on the volleyball courts, behind DesertView. These are a fun alternative to our other 2 Step and Waltz classes. They are similar to line dancing, but you dance with your partner in a “sweetheart” position. Some are easy, others more challenging, but they are all fun, because we make dancing fun!

Monthly we have a DJ provide music for a dance that is open to all! These give us a chance to practice our steps, even review before a dance, in a relaxed, fun, social atmosphere. Check with me for dates. These will be outside on Sundays or Mondays, when the weather permits.

We are hoping that this fall we can resume inside classes and dances!

Grab your partner, and some friends, and come have a boot-stomping good time, western dancing!
