Social Styles – Partner Dancing

Intro To Social Dance

I2SD logoTuesdays 7:00 – 8:00 PM

What To Expect:
Intro To Social Dance 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 6 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 or 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 yoimg_0056u’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!

BellyDancingFundraiser-9Monday 5:30 – 6:30 PM
Thursday 6:00 – 7:00 PM

What To Expect:

Our studio is a warm and welcoming space for you to explore and enjoy learning the beautiful art of Belly Dance. This class is open to all levels of dancers, including absolute beginners. This class begins with a warm-up and instruction on basic movements, and then progresses to dancing to music and learning fun choreographies

Belly Dancing is a folk dance from the Middle East that has become stylized over the centuries. Belly imageDancers use every part of her body – perhaps the hips most of all. This dance is characterized by precise and isolated movements 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.

Intro To Polynesian Dance

IMG_1316Sunday 2:00 – 3:30 PM

What To Expect:
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 IMG_1290
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!
