Dancing is the only sport that lets you hold your partner in your arms, plus, is good for you both mentally and physically. It’s exercise that is fun!

Partners Western Dance will offer a series of four Western Waltz classes starting on Thursday, March 7. Western waltz is different from Ballroom Waltz, in that our feet are always passing, and we are progressing. I personally think many of the steps are so pretty, and my favorite is the couple Waltz turns, or the Swoosh!

Western Waltz 101 begins at 6 p.m., the more advanced Western Waltz 201 will start at 7 p.m. Both classes are held in the Rincon room, previously the HOA-2 Golf Shop.

At 5 p.m. in the Rincon room on Monday, March 4, Partners Western Dance will offer Night Club Two-Step classes. This style works best with ballads, and songs that make you ask, “What dance can I do to this song?” It has some unique steps and is a fun alternative!

Partner Pattern 101 will also be offered at 6 p.m. on Mondays in the Rincon room on Monday, March 4. Partner Pattern dances are similar to line dancing, except you do the steps with your partner in the sweetheart position. They are a series of steps that repeat. We start with the simple 10-step, and then do different pattern dances, like the Sway, which is 16-steps, then repeat. At 7 p.m., Partner Pattern 201 begins with more intricate dance steps. We ask for a donation of $2 per student per class.

The Partners Western Dance Club has dances scheduled monthly. We have dances with a live Band, Wild Ride and DJ dances. Wild Ride is fantastic, and their music is great to dance to, or listen to. We have a great group of dancers, so, we have a ground pounding, boot stomping good time!

Don’t miss out on the fun! Grab your Partner, your neighbors, stop sitting on the side lines, get up and Dance! For more information, email Jane Gromelski at janewesterndance@aol.com. Please note that our venue schedule can change.
