"Vintage Ballroom"
In our first workshop we learn:
Dance 1. Vintage waltzing. 1800-1840
       Later styles in later workshops.
Dance 2. Vintage polka (circa 1820 and onwards)
It is an easy sequence with beautiful and interesting moves - all of them still useful in modern ballroom.
The wonderful music is by Josef Strauss.
The dance is not strenuous.
A partner is not required."

T.B.A. . Nanaimo.

The music will be traditional dance music of the 1920's to 1950's.
For most weeks the music will be by recordings but once a month we hope to have a live band.

The dance style will be Lindy Hop / Jive / Charleston / Balboa, and some Solo Jazz line dances such as:
       The Madison / Shim Sham / a Lindy Routine / a Charleston routine / West Coast Swing routine
