Social Styles – Partner Dancing


Intro To Social Dance

I2SD logoTuesdays 7:00 – 8:00 PM
Level:  Beginner

What To Expect:
Intro To Social Dance is designed to give absolute beginners the confidence to enjoy dancing at any social event. This class is a fun introduction to six essential social dances: Waltz, East Coast Swing, Tango, Rumba, Foxtrot, and Cha Cha. Each week we’ll cover two dances and we rotate the dances every week. After 3 weeks, you’ll have learned the beginner basics of all six dances and will be able to dance comfortably to a variety of different music.

This class is designed for absolute beginners; you don’t need any prior experience IMG_2001or even a partner to join the fun.

Many people feel a wee-bit intimidated / terrified at the thought of signing up for a dance class. Rest assured, this will be WAY easier and more fun than you ever thought possible. The secret is…if you’ve never been taught to dance, how could you possibly know how to dance?! Didn’t you have to learn how to read, how to tie a shoe lace, and how to parallel park? (I’m still working on that one btw “-)

This is where we come in – we teach you HOW to dance. Yep, it’s possible. In fact, we have a whole business thingy where we do just that. We would be so sad if only coordinated,
naturally gifted and graceful people signed up for class because we couldn’t do our jobs 🙂

So saddle up partner and let’s get dancing!

Belly Dancing is a folk dance from the Middle East that hasimage become stylized over the centuries. Belly Dancers use every part of her body – perhaps the hips most of all. This dance is characterized by precise and isolated movemnts while keeping the rest of the body still and under control. Belly Dancing is known for it’s fluid, graceful, and feminine movements. Colorful costumes add to the mystique. Some dancers choose to expose their midriff while performing, but this is completely optional, and women of all shapes and sizes can learn to be exquisite dancers. An interesting note is that this dance, believe it or not, is traditionally performed most often for other women, and is a fun female bonding experience.

Line Dance

img_6552Monday 6:30 – 7:30 PM
Level:  All levels welcome

What To Expect:
Enjoy dancing and build friendships when you join our diverse group of all ages and backgrounds. In this class you’ll learn current and classic line dances while getting fit and having fun!

The style of line dance we teach is called Urban (also Soul or Slide) Dance. You’ll enjoy dancing to classic soul (think James Brown) and contemporary hop hop and R&B (think Cupid Shuffle). We’ll warm up with a slower, relatively simple line dance. Then we’ll learn the basics of a line dance and practice it several times without music. Then we’ll start the music and dance through the song. You’re not expected to get the dance perfectly, particularly when you’re just starting. Each week we’ll repeat these dances and you’ll get more and more comfortable each time. We encourage you to just dance for the joy of it and “fake it ’till you make it”. We’ll finish with a cool dance and you’ll leave feeling refreshed and rejunivated 🙂

Intro To Polynesian Dance

Move your body to the beautiful rhythms of the Polynesian Islands! Two of the most well-known and entertaining traditions of the Polynesian Islands are the dances of Hula, from Hawaii, and Ori Tahiti, from Tahiti. Hula is fluid and graceful while Ori Tahiti is more rhymic and emphasizes the hips. Although each dance has a unique flavor, they are similar in that they both began as accompaniments to the oral storytelling traditions of these Pacific islands. Through dance they convey the literal meaning of a tale. Come be part of the story with us!

In this class you’ll learn proper form, technique, and basic terminology. We will also learn the beautiful
choreography that represents the art and grace of the Polynesian islands. No prior experience is needed.

Please wear fitness attire. We will dance in bare feet and use a hip scarf. You may bring your own scarf, or we have a selection of colorful scarves for purchase.

Join us, and experience a taste of the tropics right here in the lowcountry!

FAQ

  • Do I need a partner?
  • Nope 🙂 Singles, as well as couples, are welcome and encouraged to join our group classes. We rotate partners throughout our group classes because you learn faster and it’s more fun too. They do call it “social dancing” for a reason “-)  So you’ll have so you’ll have ample opportunity to practice and dance whether you sign up by yourself or with a partner.
  • Can I just show up or do I need to sign up in advance?
  • We recommend you enroll online before coming to class so you will be alerted to any last minute schedule changes or class cancellations. But if you can’t sign up in advance, that’s ok! Just come 15 minutes early so you can register at the front desk. And if you have trouble signing up online, call us at 843-338-2870 and we can get you signed up over the phone 🙂
  • I have some dance experience, do I have to sign up for Intro or can I sign up for a more advanced level?
  • We’d love to have you join us! Since class levels and training varies widely, we ask new students to take their first class with us at the Intro level. At class, your teacher can asses your level and recommend the right class placement for you. Just let your teacher know when you feel ready to move up.
  • How long should I take Intro before I’m ready to advance to the next level?
  • We recommend students take Intro for 2-4 months before enrolling in next level classes. Learning to dance is much like learning an instrument in that practice and repetition is key. The first time you learn a figure, you will only be able to execute it at a very basic level. As you continue to practice, you will be able to dance a figure with more confidence, style, and correct technique. If you are wanting to progress more quickly we recommend taking private lessons and attending practice dance parties; both will help you immensely.
