Ballroom dance group classes with a difference
If you’ve been dancing for a while and want to get more out of your experiences you should consider the Level 3, or advanced ballroom dance classes. This group class that doesn’t follow the approach used by most ballroom dance studios. Instead, classes are focused on mastering each dance we cover rather than just teaching a pile of new steps that you may not even understand.
We believe that dancing is way more enjoyable and more beautiful when people do things well. Rather than try to teach an huge number of fancy steps, we teach fewer step patterns with lots of technique so that you understand the principles of how to perform them well, how to lead effectively and how to match your partner as effortlessly as possible.
In every class you benefit from having two professionally certified teachers demonstrate the steps and technique, rather than having one teacher try to show both sides of the partnership. This way you get to see how the couple is supposed to move together in every step grouping.
Watch a championship couple in a solo demonstration and you’ll see basic steps performed so beautifully they look like fancy steps.
The Delta Dance Level 3 ballroom dance training program is equivalent to a combination of Silver and Gold classes taught at many ballroom dance studios, but we teach a single dance over several weeks.
In each case, the emphasis is not on cramming a ton of steps into the program, but helping you dance with quality. You are given advanced steps with plenty of information to help you understand how to make them look good so that you look great when you try them on the dance floor. You’ll also learn how to put the steps together so that you can dance effectively around the room.
Dances covered include Slow Foxtrot, Samba, Paso Doble and Viennese Waltz taught from the beginning, as well as Waltz, Tango, Quickstep, Cha Cha and Rumba taught as an upgrade from the Level 2 program. At our Kennedy Hall location we also teach the American Smooth dances as full Bronze level programs.
Where and When
The Level 3 program is taught at both Kennedy Hall in Surrey and KinVillage Community Centre in Tsawwassen. Both programs are similar in content and continue throughout the year, though the dances will be different at any given point in time.
