~ Waltz Lessons ~
future dates t.b.a.

We’ll cover the basics of footwork, partnering, leading and following; understanding the structure and rhythm of waltz music. Instruction is based on the traditional turning style waltz.

This course is for beginners, as well as dancers who want to improve their technique. The course is also suitable for those who know the box-step waltz, but want to learn this versatile and popular style.

Expand your repertoire of flourishes & develop your partnering skills.


Peggy and Ret have been teaching waltz and other couple dances since Mostly Waltz (a popular monthly social dance) was formed in 1999.
