Back to School Special

Welcome back from summer break!  Richard Powers teaches intermediate classes from 7 to 9 pm, with Melissa Carvell.  Richard is our dance music DJ from 9pm to midnight, with some of his favorite dance music submitted to him by his Stanford students.


7pm - Romany Polka Crash Course Many have requested a re-teaching of Romany Polka, by those who missed the recent class, and by those who want a review.  We'll do a quicker teaching this time.  Romany Polka is livelier than BNP, shorter (only two minutes), and has great music.  Here's a video.  The class is for anyone who already knows how to do a basic polka.

8pm - Fusion Cross-Step.  This will be a more advanced class, for those already familiar with cross-step waltz.  Once you know the basics you can play with rhythms and timing, and fuse in elements from blues, tango, club two-step and west coast swing.  The class will include new material that Richard will be teaching in St. Petersburg in January, at Russia's first Cross-Step Waltz Week.

Dance Performance by Jodaam! a new dance troupe. Jodaam is an amalgamation of the Portuguese words for Play (Joga), Dance (Dansa), and Love (Ama). Jodaam is a dance un-group created by Anna Botelho, who started the dance program at Google, and a former teacher here at Friday Night Waltz. If some of the dancers look familiar, that's because they used to belong to another dance troupe, Decadance, a local favorite for the past 20 years. The piece today, "Ex's and Oh's" is choreographed by Anna Botelho and combines Lindy Hop, Swing Rueda, Jazz, and Contemporary dance. Please welcome Jodaam!
