The usual brief introduction of Standard Ballroom dance

As per all my posts about the Standard Ballroom classes I have organised, I introduce this genre of ballroom dances. It is a partner dance characterised by fluid movements with the hips connected.

As such, the Standard Ballroom is a lovely dance genre for couples seeking new relationship enhancing activities together. For the very same reason, it is extremely difficult to start semi-private group classes as strangers often find hip connection over-intimate and awkward.

The purpose of this dance is defeated when the stranger-couple starts dancing without the important connection at the hips for the rest of the course.

For emphasis on the form, I’ll rather look my part, practising the same four figure steps repeatedly but gracefully with my partner, than to complete a series of figures without the closed hold and connection at the hips.

Interested couples please feel free to contact me at 96637673 so that I may keep you in the loop when we are able to start a class with three couples.

Couples’ personal time availability often staggers. Hence, it is extremely difficult to put three couples together at the same time slot over the same 6 lessons window together.
