21st century Chinese, Korean and Japanese dance music!

Why? Because so many Asian waltzes are exquisitely beautiful. And C-Pop, K-Pop and J-Pop songs are fun.  Be transported to another world through music!  Richard will DJ his favorite new tunes from the Far East.

Tag-Team Night, Part 2!  Richard Powers and Mirage Marrou teach the intermediate classes from 7 to 9 pm.

7 pm - Tag Team Cha Cha Variations.  Mirage and Richard will alternate teaching quick Cha Cha variations, including Jedi Cha Cha—lead and follow with the Force!  Some dancers like their Cha Cha to be playful and easy while some like it hot and Latin.  We'll do some of both.  Expand your repertoire with new figures!  If Cha Cha is new to you, no problem - it's easy, fun, and the basics will be covered.

8 pm - Tag Team On-the-Fly Waltz Variations.  Richard and Mirage will take turns teaching fun and very useful variations on the rotary waltz.  Who knows what they'll come up with, or create at the moment, but they might include new wraps, new wedding cake variations, check steps, dives, triple free spins and more.  To get the most out of this class you should be comfortable with basic rotary or Viennese waltz (either one).
