Small Planet Dancers offers an 8-week foundation course for beginners and those who would like to improve their ballroom dancing technique. Couples only please, but no experience is necessary.
Two instructors will be present for each class, enabling students to witness the correct technique for both the leader and follower roles. Each one hour class is roughly split between the two dance styles taught that session. The two dance styles taught during a sesson are selected (with previous student input) from the list below:
A syllabus will be distributed on the first night of each
session. Each week, one new step (selected from a list of
options included on the syllabus) will be taught in each
dance. Good “lead and follow technique” will be taught for
each step. To improve retention, each class will include a
review of steps learned during prior weeks of the session.
Classes are held on FRIDAYS from 7:00 until 8:00 PM, at 16 Union Ave, Suite 3-K, Westfield, MA, 01085. $60 per person covers a single class for the 8 week session. For $100 you may attend unlimited Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday classes during the 8 week session. There is plenty of free parking beside the building.
