Everything quality dancing should be in focused lessons
Simple steps danced well are highly enjoyable, both for the dancers and for anyone watching. Ballroom dancers who want to look and feel great on the floor focus on perfecting the basics. Even the world champions, when they perform solo presentations, often use the most basic steps, showing how they have mastered them so that they actually look like fancy steps.
Even the top champions show off their best dancing with basic steps. If these steps are good enough for world champions, they’re good enough for anyone!
The Delta Dance intermediate ballroom dance program offers a detailed look at all the popular Ballroom, Latin and American Smooth dances, covering all the Bronze level figures and for most dances Silver and Gold figures as well.
The goal is to help you dance the figures well, rather than just teaching where to put your feet. We teach most dances in groups that you can combine in different ways, while more challenging dances like Samba and Paso Doble as well as the Smooth dances are taught in routines.
Our punch card system means you can skip dances because of holidays or work and just pick up those missed classes the next time they cycle around.
What you’ll learn
The program picks up where the Beginner ballroom dance classes left off, adding more technique and new steps in a relaxed environment designed for learning. Each dance is covered over several weeks.
We cover Samba, Rumba, Paso Doble, Mambo, Quickstep, Slow Foxtrot, Viennese Waltz, Smooth Waltz, Smooth Tango, Smooth Foxtrot and Smooth Viennese Waltz from the very beginning, so even if you’ve never danced these before you’ll be able to start here. Other dances, specifically the Cha Cha, Tango, Waltz and Jive continue on from what we cover in the Level 1 program.
Latin dances are Cha Cha (6 weeks), Samba (6 weeks), Rumba (6 weeks), Paso Doble (6 weeks), Jive (4 weeks), Mambo (4 weeks). These happen Saturday from 11:30am-12:30pm. In Tsawwassen we teach the same material but the schedule is slightly different.
Ballroom dances are Waltz (6 weeks), Tango (6 weeks), Viennese Waltz (2 weeks), Slow Foxtrot (6 weeks), Quickstep (6 weeks), Smooth Waltz (6 weeks), Smooth Tango (6 weeks), Smooth Foxtrot (6 weeks), Smooth Viennese Waltz (6 weeks). These happen Saturday from 12:45pm-1:45pm. In Tsawwassen we teach similar material (no Smooth) and the schedule is slightly different.
Where and When
The program is taught at both Kennedy Hall on the North Delta/Surrey border, and at KinVillage Community Centre in Tsawwassen. The programs are slightly different at each location as Smooth and Mambo are only taught in our Surrey location.
Both facilities offer a punch card system so that you never have to worry about losing classes because of a vacation, trip or other reason. You can just pick up the classes you missed when they cycle around again. But please note that your registration and punch cards are not interchangeable between the two locations. Delta Dance teaches the program at KinVillage but the program is administered there directly by the community centre. For this reason it uses a different punch card system from the Delta Dance punch cards and membership used at Kennedy Hall.
