BALLROOM DANCE, ST 19901  - Waltz, Swing, Tango, Hustle: This class is for total beginners: no previous dance experience required, and no partner needed: we will rotate partners frequently. Meet people! Our approach to dance is student friendly, entertaining and fun. We do not require between-class practice, although you would benefit from that. The syllabus geared for social ballroom, leaning heavily on American Bronze syllabus, but with commonly taught simplifications and additional fun moves. This is a social ballroom class, not a Dancesport competition class.

We are non-judgemental instructors. We encourage questions, and give plenty of individual attention. A unique aspect of our approach is that we continually revisit specific ways that both partners can look good & feel good on the dance floor.You are DANCERS, not just leader & follower! And there is lots more to each dance style than just different steps and patterns.There is drama, expression, lyricism, and the emotional connection to both your partner and the music.
Course Fee: $65, bursared. (ST 19901 and 19902 are the only courses in PALS not taught by salaried coaches. The course fee pays the instructor's salary).

SALSA DANCE, ST 19902  -  Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, ChaChaCha: No previous dance experience required, and no partner needed: we will rotate partners frequently. Meet people! These Caribbean partner dances are currently the hottest, most popular club partner dances in Central New York, and possibly the world. Salsa gets the most club play, and we will spend most our class time exploring it. You can think of the class as "Club Prep," aspects of club dancing beyond actual dancing are covered. Our approach to dance is student-friendly: entertaining and fun. We do not require between-class practice (although you would benefit by it). Our goal is for you to rock out on the club dance floor, and be a sought-after, admired and fun dance partner at any Latin dance scene, both locally and anywhere.

Cuban, Dominican, New York and L.A. dance styles, both club and street, are covered in varying detail. The instructor is an aficionado of latin club and street dance - these are not dancesport or ballroom versions of the dances - they are as close to modern ethnic stylings as we can get.
Course Fee: $65, bursared. (ST 19901 and 19902 are the only courses in PALS not taught by salaried coaches. The course fee pays the instructor's salary).
