FOOTLOOSE FRIDAYS
GET YOUR TWO LEFT FEET READY TO DANCE!
Every month learn a new dance step & try out your dance moves. Light refreshment and desserts will be provided.

RUMBA
Unlike the intense exhibition Rumba on “Dancing with the Stars,” Rumba for social dancers is relaxing and fun! With its “slow, quick, quick” cadence in 4/4 time, American Rumba provides a catalog of rhythmic movements adaptable to a wide range of popular songs.
And because it requires very little space, it’s ideal on a crowded dance floor.
We will learn basic steps and timing, and then add elements of style that will have you moving confidently at your next social event!
For your comfort and safety, please wear shoes that will slide comfortably on the floor.

Friday, March 27th at 7:00 PM –Rumba CANCELLED to be rescheduled at another date.
