Ballroom Dance


Attention will be given to correct posture and dance form as well as the subtle directions given by the "Lead." To facilitate learning, the instructor will implement partner changes. Style and technique will be introduced and encouraged later in each session.


To ensure students have an opportunity to practice what they have learned with one another, social outings will be scheduled. Students will also be informed of Dubuque Ballroom Club dance evenings to further their skills.
