September 10, Ballroom Dance

Our next ballroom dance will take place in the historic Spanish Ballroom on September 10, 2023. Music will be provided by the Helmut Licht Trio. Helmut is a well-known performer in the DC-Baltimore region and his music is specially tailored with ballroom dancers in mind. With his Trio he will be making his debut performance* in the Spanish Ballroom. We're delighted - thank you, Helmut!! The Trio will be playing a selection of ballroom music: Slow Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Quickstep, Viennese Waltz, Rumba, Cha-Cha, Samba, Mambo, Swing, Bachata, and more. A large part of the fun is having the opportunity to practice a variety of dances to live music. So please join us. There will be a beginner lesson in Bachata and Viennese Waltz taught by Annie Zhong starting at 2:30.  Music by the Trio begins at 3:30 pm and goes to 6:00 pm. There will be a mixer and a line dance. A dream showcase will be performed by top amateur couple Jan and Le dancing to a Foxtrot and Quickstep medley. Admission is $15 at the door (cash, check, credit card or Zelle). No partner is required to attend Ballroom Time events. All are invited.

*As an added attraction, be sure to get your signed copy of Helmut's poem "Dancing!" at the event. This framed, commemorative edition of the poem, printed on special paper, signed by the author, and embossed with our Ballroom Time logo, is sure to become a collector's item and makes an ideal gift for the special dancer in your life... or just offer it to yourself for inspiration! Funds received go to promote ballroom dancing in the Park and towards our goal of bringing Helmut's Big Band Orchestra to the Ballroom in 2024.  Details at the event!
