BALLROOM DANCE CLASSES (Ages 16+)

AT WAKEFIELD PARK COMMUNITY BUILDING, 1860 Hazelwood Street

Dance the night away with instructors from Dance and Entertainment Studios during our 6 week dance sessions. All ages and levels are welcome in these beginner level classes. Those without partners will rotate with each other and the instructor. Meet new friends and practice leading and following your new dance patterns-that’s what social dancing is all about!

THURSDAYS, NOVEMBER 7 - DECEMBER 26 (NO CLASS NOV 28 & DEC 19)

SESSION 1: 6:00PM - 6:50PM: Rumba & Swing series: These dances cover the most common rhythm tempos and widest variety of music styles played at dance venues and wedding receptions. Rumba can be danced slow or fast and stays in place not taking up much room on the dance floor. The Swing we cover in this beginner class is single-time East Coast Swing. It’s the easiest footwork to start with, getting you moving fast to the music. Cost is $75/Person. SESSION 2: 7:00PM - 7:50PM: Cha-Cha & Waltz series: These dances are detailed in their music tempos and give the dedicated dancers more variety of footwork, patterns, and movement around the dance floor. Cha-Cha has a unique rhythm and is commonly used when dancing Salsa is too slow. You’ve got more time in the music to fill it in with “cha-cha-cha.” Waltz will be shown as both a box-step rhythm, and as a large traveling dance around the floor, so it can be used at both Ballroom dance venues and wedding receptions. Cost is $75/Person.

THURSDAYS, JANUARY 2 - FEBRUARY 6

SESSION 1: 6:00PM - 6:50PM: Night Club 2-Step & Foxtrot series: These dances replace some common freestyle dances by giving you more footwork, patterns, and movement. Night Club 2-Step takes a slow song and gives it rhythm and speed with fun patterns that move you throughout the dance floor. Foxtrot will take a Swing or Rumba style dance and enlarge it while traveling around the dance floor to classic big band music. Cost is $75/Person. SESSION 2: 7:00PM - 7:50PM: Swing & Salsa series: These dances have been on the “most popular” list for years! They follow trends in music style and don’t take up much room on the dance floor, making it easy to dance at any venue. The Swing we cover in this beginner class is single-time East Coast Swing. It’s the easiest footwork to start with, getting you moving fast to the music. In addition to current pop music, Swing goes to big band and 50’s-60’s rock & roll music. Salsa actually has simple footwork but appears difficult because the music is fast. Cost is $75/Person.

THURSDAYS, FEBRUARY 27 - APRIL 2

SESSION 1: 6:00PM - 6:50PM: Tango & Swing series: These dances cover both strict tempo styles and more relaxed freestyle dances. Tango is a very fun partner dance with a unique rhythm using five steps in eight beats of music. Everyone will recognize the Tango rhythm in Hernando’s Hideaway! Grab a partner, because it takes two, you know! The Swing we cover in this beginner class is single-time East Coast Swing. It’s the easiest footwork to start with, getting you moving fast to the music. Cost is $75/Person. SESSION 2: 7:00PM - 7:50PM: Waltz & Rumba series: These dances cover a wide variety of music played at wedding receptions-the beautiful and classic Waltz for parents and grandparents, and the modern Rumba box-step for brides, grooms, and social dancers. Waltz will be shown as both a box-step rhythm and as a traveling dance around the floor. Rumba works to almost any rhythm of music, can be danced slow or fast, and stays in place not taking up much room on the dance floor. Cost is $75/Person.

THURSDAYS, APRIL 9 - MAY 14

SESSION 1: 6:00PM - 6:50PM: West Coast Swing & Salsa series: These dances are very specific to their music type and are great for the dedicated dancers. You will expand both your music and dance knowledge with these styles of dances. West Coast Swing is danced in a “slot position” and goes to blues, jazz, and pop music, slow and fast. Then, Salsa actually has simple footwork but appears difficult because the music is fast. Cost is $75/Person. SESSION 2: 7:00PM - 7:50PM: Foxtrot & Cha-Cha series: These dances provide a variety of music and tempos, and provide both a traveling and non-traveling style of dance. Foxtrot will take a Swing or Rumba style dance and enlarge it while traveling around the dance floor to classic big band music. Cha-Cha has a unique rhythm and is commonly used when dancing Salsa is too slow. You’ve got more time in the music to fill it in with “cha-cha-cha”. Cost is $75/Person. ***Please carry in clean/dry, smooth-sole shoes. (Suede-sole ballroom dance shoes are available for purchase in our Woodbury studio). As a bonus, we welcome our students from all our locations to attend our weekly Practice Parties in our Woodbury studio -for free- every Thursday from 8:00-9:00pm***

GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER AT OLD LOG THEATRE - Excelsior, MN WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 29 WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 12

TRIPS LEAVE THE MAPLEWOOD PARKS AND RECREATION OFFICE AT 11:00AM AND RETURN BETWEEN 4:30PM - 5:00PM

A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder is the knock-’em-dead, uproarious hit and the most nominated show of the 2014 season. With 10 Tony nominations and 4 wins, including Best Musical, Book, Direction and Costumes, it also earned seven Drama Desk Awards (including Best Musical), four Outer Critics Circle Awards (including Best Musical) and one Drama League Award (Best Musical). When the low-born Monty Navarro finds out that he’s eighth in line for an earldom in the lofty D’Ysquith family, he figures his chances of outliving his predecessors are slight and sets off down a far more ghoulish path. Can he knock off his unsuspecting relatives without being caught and become the ninth Earl of Highhurst? And what of love? Because murder isn’t the only thing on Monty’s mind… Choose your lunch from these options; braised boneless short ribs, seared pork chop, dill roasted tilapia, or vegetarian pasta dish. Cost is $65.00 (includes transportation, lunch, tax, gratuity, and theater ticket). 14
