Friday Nights at River Oaks School of Dancing
On Friday evenings at 8 p.m. we offer a group class to our enrolled students. This is a great way to supplement your private lessons and to meet new friends! Each week we teach a dance from a regular 6-week rotation through the major ballroom dances. This class is suitable for all dance skill levels. We begin with review of a basic dance figure, and progress through one or two additional figures with increasing complexity, and ending with a “challenge” step to provide additional intricacy to enhance the learning experience. The group class includes a focus on principles of styling and technique applicable to the dance, as well as variations to the dance form which may be seen in social or club dance settings. New material will be taught in each class. Following the group class, at 9 p.m. the party starts! At our weekly dance party you will be able to practice your dancing in a fun, social environment. We play a variety of music and a serve yourself mixer cart is provided for enhancing BYOB beverages. This is a great opportunity to mix and mingle with our wonderful students who are also interested in learning to dance!
