New Dancers and Beginner Parties

Hello to all those looking for information about dance opportunities!

Beginner Dance Parties

If your group is looking for a group participation activity, consider a Beginner Dance Party.
Learn names for a few simple actions and the caller will direct you through dance patterns using those actions.
Within the first ten minutes you will be dancing!

"Circle Left, Circle Right, Forward and Back, Dosado, Promenade."
You can guess what the first three moves mean so you only need to learn how to Dosado and Promenade.

Contact Dottie to arrange an opportunity to experience the joy of moving to music with old friends and new.
