Social Dancing with Ballroom Dance Lessons
Social Dancing for the 21-80-year-old set – with Ballroom Dance Lessons – is available nearly every week (Friday & Saturday nights) in Wheat Ridge and West Denver (East side of Golden).
Admission of $10 per person includes Ballroom Dance Lessons
(by Professional Instructors) plus two & one-half hours of Ballroom Dancing to DJ-curated music.
The fun starts with a Lesson at 7:00 pm followed by Open Dancing at 8:00 pm.
Singles & Couples are always Welcome – no membership required in the Denver Dance Community. The balance of men and women (leaders & followers) is always good. Plus, there’s the customary practice of everyone asking everyone for a dance. Experienced Guys (the better leaders) are generous in making newcomer ladies (especially singles) feel welcome, pleased they attended and making plans to be a regular.
First Saturdays of the month are hosted by Mary Lindsey-Hepp (more than 10 years running) at theKickers Ballroom, 16776 W 50th Avenue, Golden CO 80403.
Second & Fourth Fridays of the month are hosted by Cathy & Brent Paxton at the Sons of Italy Ballroom, 5925 West 32nd Avenue (corner of Harlan), Wheat Ridge CO 80212. Maggie Francucci (30 years’ experience) of DanceConnectionColorado.com is the featured instructor.
The Lessons rotate among some 10+ Ballroom genres – including Waltz, West Coast Swing, East Coast Swing, Tango, Foxtrot, Bolero, QuickStep, American ChaCha, Cowboy ChaCha and Night Club 2Step. With a different lesson every week, each dancer gets to build and expand his/her Ballroom Dance knowledge. That translates to more and more satisfaction on the dance floor and an ever-increasing choice among dance partners.
A 2-month calendar is available at registration, confirming upcoming dance dates with details of the scheduled lesson and instructor and the DJ to be on duty. Everyone has a favorite instructor and DJ, though all instructors and DJs are professionals, chosen for their popularity and skill-sets for bringing dancers back every week – that is, communicating dance-step details and choosing the best dance music.
