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.
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).

How to Join a Class
Worksafe BC requires that we limit class sizes and maintain a record of everyone who attends, to ensure safety during the COVID-19 crisis. 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.
