What you will learn...
When you picture yourself dancing, which dance do you see? Pacific Dance Center can teach you the full spectrum of ballroom and social dances.
The Cha-Cha is hot, spicy, and bigger than life. This dance has a very sexy quality to its flirtatious nature, and gets the blood pumping better than any morning run. The fast, precise, syncopated movement of this dance will have your heart beating double-time, in no time!
Popularized in the U.S. by Carmen Miranda, the Samba evokes images of Carnival and Rio de Janeiro. A fast-paced, sleek, and sensual dance, this Brazilian export will get your heart racing.
The Ballroom version of its close cousin, the Salsa, Mambo is very quick but very smooth. It moves off of the beat, which gives it an unmistakable rhythm. Whereas Salsa tends to stay in one spot, with Mambo you can move all over the floor, wowing your friends and your partner!
Fox Trot is characterized by long, smooth strides and graceful arm movements. With its swaggering persona, it is the essence of a suave, cool style, and is elegant and sophisticated in its movement to the Big Band style songs it’s danced to.
The Waltz is the class fairytale dance; we become Prince Charming and Cinderella as we invite each other to Waltz together. Its slow lilt and large movements capture perfectly the royal, yet melancholic character of the music, and will sweep any couple away to that special place where they exist only for each other.
You don’t have to own a zoot suit to be hip to the swing. Swing is back and it’s bigger than ever. Try one of several variations of swing dance: East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Lindy Hop.
…and so much more!
