Workshops are a fantastic way for students to broaden their abilities, to be challenged, to experience something new in a more fast paced intensive learning environment. Building on more specifics and creativity!
Group classes offer another option in learning to dance. They supplement your private lessons, help with retention of patterns and builds confidence by providing extra practice time with other people, plus I keep these group classes manageable so you can get some personal attention. It’s great to meet new people, find out where the dance scene is, work on your own skills and just enjoy learning to dance in a comfortable atmosphere. Classes are held on Thursdays with Debra.
You can come as a solo dancer or bring a partner. Couples and singles are welcome. Pre-registration is requested due to limited space. Location at: NOCO Ballroom 6718 N. Franklin Ave, Loveland, CO.

7:00pm -Beginner: Social Dance Group Class
This group class is ideal for first time dancers and beginners.
I change dance styles monthly and try to rotate them into the next month. Classes progress in nature so it is best to start at the beginning if you never danced before. Styles are chosen to get you ready to dance in any club social setting. This class is also good to use for practice so you get the chance to dance with other people.
We'll cover basic patterns, rhythms, lead/follow technique.
For couples and solo dancers. Couples do not need to rotate, single dancers will rotate and I also lead/follow as needed.
You do not need a partner to join this class. Take a chance at something new and start dancing!
8:00pm - Beginner to Level 2 Group Class
In this class, having some experience with partner dancing is necessary, however you do not need to know how to do the dance offered.
We concentrate more on advanced concepts and build on beginner and intermediate patterns with more variety and continuity.
For couples and solo dancers. We do rotate in this class and I also lead/follow as needed.

West Coast Swing
This might be at a dance competition but it is not a routine. This shows some nice variety of West Coast Swing dancing as you might see on the social dance floor. A Jack & Jill contest is such that it is totally lead/follow, it is not planned in advance. This is something you could eventually do and strive towards!!
Country 2 Step
I thought you might like to watch a little Country2 step. You can see the difference in styles and flare between the dancers. Notice how it travels around the floor as dancers pass their feet. What will your style be like??
Night Club 2 Step
People ask me what's the difference between this and Country 2 step. So I thought you might enjoy seeing what this dance can look like. This is considered a spot dance and doesn't travel around the floor. It's danced to beautiful romantic ballads so it has a smoother controlled look. Hope you join the class!
Latin/New York Hustle
This dance can be danced disco, country or contemporary style in either a 4 count rhythm or syncopated style. This is syncopated and has many turns and spins as the dance moves smoothly around in a small area.
