Elgin Community College, 1700 Spartan Drive, Elgin, IL
Join former two-time USA National Ballroom and Latin Dance Champion Barbara Finn and her husband James to learn the basics of ballroom dance. Their repertoire includes expertise in Tango, Viennese Waltz, Quickstep, Samba, Mambo, Bolero, Jive, and West Coast Swing. This class might focus on one of these to increase technique and learn advanced step patterns or a number of them to give the student a general experience. Easy footwork, lead/follow techniques, styling and great step combinations will be covered so you can go out dancing right away! Dress comfortably, but wear shoes that have smooth leather bottoms. Do not wear tennis shoes or rubber-soled shoes. You do need prior dance experience, but not a partner. Singles and couples are welcome although this is a group class where students may dance with other students. You should have taken the beginner’s class at least THREE TIMES or get instructor’s approval in order to keep up with the pace of this class. No class on November 23.
