ABC's of Ballroom Dance Workshop on Saturday Afternoon June 8, 2024

To help beginner ballroom dancers prepare for our Sunday afternoon dances, we are offering an ABC's Workshop in the historic Spanish Ballroom on June 8, 2024 from 2:00 to 5:00 pm.

The Workshop will focus on Standard/Smooth dances that move around the expansive Spanish ballroom in a line of dance.  The first hour of instruction will cover basic steps used in the waltzes: slow waltz, Viennese waltz, and samba.  The second hour will cover foxtrot, quickstep, and ballroom tango. 

The Workshop is designed with beginner to intermediate dancers in mind, and will cover lead and follow techniques along with basic step figures that can be used across multiple dance styles. 

Following the two hours of instruction there will be 1 hour of supervised practice to recorded ballroom dance music from 4:00 to 5:00 pm.  Steps used in the popular samba line dance will be reviewed during the supervised practice session, as will the Viennese cross used in Viennese waltz. 

The Workshop will be taught by Ballroom Time staff Tom Hall and Min Zhang who have a combined total of over 50 years of ballroom dance experience.

Admission to the Workshop is $15 (Cash /Check/Zelle/Credit Card at the door).  Full-time students and students enrolled in our Thursday evening class series may take the Workshop for $5 (Cash only). 

Students who complete this Workshop may register to attend our June 16, 2024 dance featuring the Mike Surratt Trio at the student rate of $5.  Send an email to to register your name.
