Tutoring sessions for beginning dancers for weddings or just for fun are available, even last minute, in a small dance room in a residential home in NE Albuquerque between Eubank and Wyoming just off of Indian School.
Dance really is about knowing how to use your feet and body with understanding the different dance phrasings, so that when you are out social dancing you will better understand which dance applies.
By concentrating on simple clean dance patterns, general basic technique, proper frame, lead and follow, you will able to apply this to a social environment.
We will be concentrating on the dance as well as practice ideas and error recovery technique; so there is no such thing as a social dance mistake and you will be able to practice at home with the music of your choice.
Please bring heavy comfortable athletic socks with you to class. This saves you the cost of proper dance shoes, and allows you to learn faster. The Dance Floor is a Floating Wood Dance Floor and is extremely easy on the feet and joints because it has some give. If you have foot problems requiring special support I suggest Dance Sneakers available at New Mexico Dancewear at Wyoming and Menaul in Hoffmantown shopping center.
I have a list on file with NM Dancewear of several possible choices of dance foot wear. You can choose what best works for you.
Please no street sneakers, street shoes, or character shoes.
Please do not wear your dance shoes outside. Thank you for your cooperation.
