For intermediate level waltzers, learning the cross-step style will open up a whole new world of waltzing pleasure! This flowing and fun style is made to order for slow tempo waltzes. As with the trad'l rotary waltz, the couple travels around the room, and additionally the cross-step style allows for graceful and creative variations.

Here's a video of the Cross-step Waltz.

The skills learned will raise your overall dancing level. We'll teach the traveling basic with ample practice on the elements of the movements involved and partnering skills. Each class will include flourishes.
