The following dances were written specifically to teach new beginners during a 12 week course.
We have used this program with great success in our classes and can recommend it.
Vol 2 is more current and we tend to use these dances interspersed with selections from Vol. 1
Once our dancers know the steps we introduce more traditional beginner dances.
I suggest that you start with the first dance and work your way through them.
We try to teach the first 3 plus the 12 step waltz in the first class.
Most people pick these up, but of course they don’t remember them.
Because we have mixed level classes our beginners learn to dance ‘their’ dances to other music and in this way
they can continue to dance while our more experienced dancers do their’ dances.
It works well for us and everyone gets to stay for most of the 3 hours that we offer at our classes.
The step sheets will tell you which steps each dance is focussing on.
Oh I forgot to mention that the dances listed below are actually cd’s.
