Vintage Dance

Although regular weekly instruction in Vintage Dance is difficult to find, see my Workshops page for classes and workshops in Vintage and Social Dance styles. 

Friday, March 16 at FRIDAY NIGHT WALTZ continues a 3-week sequence of rotary waltz lessons, including a 7:15pm class in technique, styling, and variations, all supporting a choreography taught at 8:10pm. At the end of the 3 weeks, you'll have a new dance ready to be performed or danced at every Friday Night Waltz.

WEDNESDAY WALTZ ETCETERA in BOULDER, CO: March 28, 7:00pm: I'm teaching at the Avalon Ballroom from 7-8pm; stay around for sociable dancing to great music. Newcomers welcome!  No partner required.  $7 per person, includes lesson and refreshments.

Also see my Contact page for information on helpful weekend private lessons taught in Palo Alto.
