George attending NDCC Canadian Championships
There will be no classes this weekend. The National Dance Council of Canada (NDCC) is hosting the National Canadian Championships in Gatineau QC this weekend. This is Canada's most prestigious...
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 figures. 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.
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, Quickstep, Slow Foxtrot, Viennese Waltz, Smooth Waltz, Smooth Tango and Smooth Viennese Waltz from the very beginning, so even if you’ve never danced these before you’ll be able to start here. The Cha Cha, Tango, Waltz, Jive and Smooth Foxtrot continue on from what we cover in the Level 1 program.
Most dances are covered over a six-week program so that you get a chance to put what you learn into muscle memory as you progress through the dance.
Because of the COVID-19 situation, all classes are currently only being taught at Kennedy Hall on the Surrey/North Delta border. Kinvillage is closed for the foreseeable future.
To join a class, select the class or classes you wish to attend from the calendar and purchase your ticket(s). You can put multiple sessions into your shopping cart before checking out so that you only need to make a single order. We don’t recommend ordering too many weeks ahead.
We offer a 6-lesson punch card at a reduced price which makes it easy to check in each week. You just show the card and we’ll punch out one of the slots. If using a punch card, register for classes using the RSVP option. Yu can order your punch card below or at the studio.
