“We are having such a great time learning to dance at Holiday. Hubs and I had no prior dance experience and we have found a real community here. Not competitive or intimidating at all, just a community of really nice instructors and students who are patient and happy about people wanting to learn. They offer group classes in like 17 different dances and it has been so fun to try them and see what we like to do. There are always enough people in the group classes to be able to switch partners and get to practice with different people. I can't say enough good things about this place. If you want to start your dance journey , Holiday is a great place to do it!!!!”
What is Partnership dancing?
Partnership dancing involves a non-verbal connection between two partners moving in unison to a variety of different forms of music. The music ranges from jazz music, classical music, country music, rock and roll, latin, and many other types of music. It dates back from the early middle ages and it has evolved into a wide span of different dances from social enjoyment...more
We have changed the verbiage from beginner lessons to foundational lessons. The reason is, as a teacher of dance, I want our more advanced members to keep a connection to the foundation of their dancing. Foundational classes include elementary figures and elementary foundation technique that continues on throughout your dance journey. By providing foundational classes, we are providing a practice opportunity to ingrain foundational concepts that will carry out throughout your dance experience from the beginning until you become a seasoned dancer. In other words, good body mechanics like lead and follow, frame, swing and sway, Latin motion, rise and fall does not begin in "silver" and "gold" dancing - it starts from the foundational lessons. I highly encourage all levels of dancers to participate regularly at the foundational level to solidify a good foundational understanding of partnering and smooth movement. Experts are created through practice of the fundamentals. Repetition is the mother of skill.more
