Aug 28 14th year anniversary dance. A MUST GO DANCE! over 550 dances and still going strong! Our most popular dance of the year.

Richard Powers and Angela Amarillas teach intermediate classes from 7 to 9 pm. Richard is our dance music DJ from 9pm to midnight.

Tonight marks the beginning of the 15th year of Friday Night Waltz, and the 23rd year that Angela has been partnering Richard's classes.

tango 7pm - Something new: 5-count, 8-count and 11-count waltzes.  Richard learned these this month while teaching in France.  These aren't zwiefachers, but instead are smoothly turning waltzes to music that isn't in 3/4 time.  We'll learn four or five different versions in this class.  Richard's favorite one is to music in 11/4 time.

8pm - Tango / One Step / Blues Fusion.  Even people who love to dance believe that tango is a complex, overwhelming dance form.  Beautiful, but intimidating.  So to make it more accessible, we'll take an easygoing friendly dance - the blues one-step - and start adding steps, style and partnering from tango.  You can make it as dramatic as you wish, or have fun keeping it simple.
