the social & ballroom dancing group is born…

hi all
a big welcome to all of you who have shown an interest in dancing; as at today we have 62 names listed; those who have not responded to my request for dancing information and background have been delisted; we will not be accepting anymore names for the time being; as usual the ladies outnumber the guys; we have 46 females and 16 males; so i will still be glad to accept males who are keen!
the following have been planned for 2012:

1)     newbies/novices sub-category:  we will help you to get started in dancing by introducing you to 5 social dances; these are the social cha cha, disco rock, square rumba, slow rhythm and social waltz; we will conduct lessons for you; we will provide you with notes on the various steps so you are less likely to forget the steps and if necessary we will revise them frequently; you should be able to dance comfortably in any social dancing events once you have completed these lessons; lessons will tentatively be on sunday afternoons between 3pm to 5pm; we will confirm the venue in due course;

2)     basic/elementary sub-category: this is by far the largest group; most of you can already dance the social dances; so we will introduce the elementary steps of the ballroom waltz; the elementary and intermediate latin rumba; the elementary jive; perhaps the elementary latin cha cha as well, depending on progress and time constraints; lessons will be on either sundays between 6pm to 8pm or tuesdays between 8pm to 10pm; we will confirm the venue in due course; notes will also be provided;

3)     elementary/intermediate/advance sub-category:  we will be focusing on the modern ballroom here; so we will revise and practise the waltz; the viennese waltz, the quickstep, the latin rumba, the latin cha cha and maybe some elementary jive; our practise session will be on friday nights between 7pm to 9pm; we will confirm the venue in due course;
we will invite you to sign up for lessons nearer the time; there will be a small contribution to cover rental costs and incidentals but there will not be any profit making; no money will go into my pocket! any excess monies we have, will go towards organizing events and functions for the group;
we look forward to your participation and support so we can all have a fun and enjoyable 2012…we look forward to building a cohesive dancing group within shc with everyone’s help;
