Join Dancing with the Queers Beginning Ballroom classes:

Sunday Beginning Standard

This is a three month class where you will learn a routine in Waltz, Tango and Quickstep and be able to take it out on the dance floor, whether for social dancing or for competing. September starts with the waltz.

We will study technique, floorcraft, styling, footwork and more in each dance. We work on one dance per month. We strongly encourage you to take the full bronze class at least twice through. Once you have taken six months, you will have been through all of the basic Bronze steps which gives you a good foundation before moving on to the intermediate level.

There are many local opportunities to dance socially and to compete, should you chose to do so. We encourage you to help each other and practice together. This class rotates partners.

Sunday Beginning Latin

Beginning International Latin Ballroom taught by Zoe Balfour- Each month we will work on a different Latin dance: Cha Cha, Rumba and Jive.
