Partners Western Dance classes and activities in 2018

Jane Gromelski

In January, 2018 we will start our next series of Beginning and Intermediate Partners Western dance classes. In the Beginning series, we cover Texas Two Step for four weeks, and then we do two weeks of Western Waltz. Classes will start on Wednesday, January 10, in the SaddleBrooke clubhouse Vermilion Room. Beginning classes will be at 6:00 p.m., Intermediate classes will be at 7:00 p.m. Tuition for the series is $48 per couple. There will be six classes in the series. The classes will meet on January 10, 17, 31 and February 7, 21 and 28. Intermediate classes cover the same Two Step and Waltz, but the steps are more intricate. We have added new steps that can be done in both dances. We love watching our dancers glide across the dance floor.

Please email me if you wish to enroll in the classes for notification of venue changes.

Partner Pattern dance classes will be held on Thursdays starting January 25. Beginner Partner Pattern dance classes will be offered at 6:00 p.m. and Intermediate classes will start at 7:00 p.m. These Partner Pattern dances offer a change of pace for our Western dancers. Some are easy, others more complicated, but they are all part of the challenge and fun of Western dance. These classes are $4 per person, per class. Classes will be held in the Mariposa Room in DesertView. We try to make all our classes relaxed and fun, because dancing is fun!

The Partners Western Dance Club has a Grand New Year’s Eve Dinner Dance at the Cadillac Chaparral. We will have shrimp cocktails and pulled pork, veggies, rolls, salad and Nancy’s chocolate Bundt cake and a Moscato toast at EST New Years! Tickets are $35 per club member.

Club membership is $15 per person. Each dance will be a dinner dance.

We will also have a DJ dance on the third Thursday, December 21, in the Vermilion Room of the SaddleBrooke Clubhouse. Volunteer DJs will provide the music. This is Burger Night at HOA One; we can order from the menu, socialize, and then get in a few hours of Western dancing from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. Since these Thursday Burger Nights are very popular, please email me that you will attend by Thursday, December 14 so I can make a reservation for tables on Thursday, December 21.

Club dances scheduled for 2018 are as follows: Wednesday, January 24 with Wild Ride; Saturday, February 24 with Branded Duo; Tuesday, March 20 with Wild Ride and Saturday, April 21 with Branded Duo.

We will have, in addition, DJ dances at HOA One on the third Thursday of January and February. March and April will be on roving Thursdays.

Please mark your calendars; you will not want to miss any of these ground pounding, boot stomping fun dances.

Grab your partner, some friends and come join the growing number of Western dancers here in SaddleBrooke.
