Western Partners dance classes and schedule

Jane Gromelski

You’ve seen others dancing on the floor, now see how easy it is—come and learn the Texas-Two-Step and the Western Waltz and experience a boot stomping, ground pounding good time! Our January series just started on the sixth, but the opportunity to learn is not gone; we will have a series that will start on March 2. The tuition for the six week Beginner series is $48 per couple. Western Dance is the easiest dance style to learn and classes are relaxed and fun. If you can walk, you can dance! Our students leave classes smiling. We have them ready to start dancing at the club dances.

Dancing is good for the mind and the body; it keeps you young at heart. How many other sports allow you to hold your partner in your arms as you participate? We recommend smooth leather soled shoes or boots. Contact Jane to reserve a space in the class; information below. Please let me know if you intend to participate so I can notify you of class location changes.

Intermediate dance classes will start at 7:00 p.m. for the same dates. The Intermediate series tuition is the same as the Beginners at $48 per couple. We will share our new steps as well as review the old steps. We will include a few Partner Pattern dances in these classes. They are fun, addictive and offer a change of pace for dancers. If you’ve seen our intermediate dancers you know they have learned some intriguing patterns and have a lot of fun dancing them.

On Thursdays in January and February, starting on January 7, we will have Partner Pattern dance classes. We will teach the easier Pattern dances at 6:00 p.m. and then at 6:45 p.m. we will teach the Intermediate level of Partner Pattern dances. These look intimidating but when we analyze the parts they become very danceable. These classes will be $4 per person per class. Partner Pattern dances really add variety to our dancing fun. Classes will be held in the Mesquite Fitness Room. You can join these classes at any time.

SaddleBrooke Partners Western Dance Club, a separate entity, has scheduled dances in 2016 on January 20 with Wild Ride, February 19 with Branded Duo, March 16 and April 15th. Mark your calendars so you don’t miss the fun.
