These classes are the perfect opportunity to get introduced to the fundamentals of dancesport – from basic steps and figures to technique, posture, coordination, balance, rhythm, and musicality. The group classes do not require a partner and are offered on a weekly basis to children, youth, and adults.
Through examination of each one of the four waltz, tango, foxtrot, Viennese waltz dances– we will cover a variety of subjects from musicality to posture, partnering skills, performance, and technique. Each class is a 45-minute session, and each month, the sessions will change topic. These classes are ideal for beginner & intermediate level dancers.
Wednesday evening is dedicated to technique and styling for both Standard and Latin dancers. A bonus styling class is dedicated specifically to ladies. The goal is to learn proper styling/technique to help dancers appear poised, graceful, and confident on the dance floor, while simultaneously remaining in full control of their routines. These sessions are 45 minutes long and do not require a partner. Open to all levels.
Master Latin classes train advanced dancers and competitors. These classes focus on advanced technique, rhythm, and musicality, with additional focus on competitive/performing skills. Supervised practice rounds immediately follow, allowing dancers to practice class topics.
Mixed Level Latin classes teach a variety of Latin steps – from basic steps to open choreography – and focus on topics such as styling, partnering, performing, coordination, and balance. Students of all levels are welcome.
DC DanceSport Academy offers supervised practice Latin rounds for dancers and competitors on Thursdays. These rounds provide critical feedback for dancers and allow competitors to practice their routines, endurance, and floor craft.
