Have you been saying to your partner, “Someday we should learn how to really dance like that”? Have you admired from the sidelines at a wedding those couples who were floating romantically around the dance floor? Or have you found yourself wanting to “shake, rattle and roll” when you heard that special song? Well, we have the solution to all your (dancing) problems. Our Y has been introducing dancing to many of our member couples for the last six years. Dancing is also great exercise and low impact. So, what’s keeping you off the dance floor? The most difficult dance step is that first one into a class.

COUPLES DANCING is the most basic level. It starts out with “Can you walk across the room?” The focus is on having fun as a couple on the dance floor. You will start out with a slow dance and a fast/swing type dance. As couples progress, additional patterns will be taught; and as participants desire, additional dances will be introduced.
