The New Year will be a good time to get those toes tapping and learn some basic Foxtrot dance moves!
Foxtrot is a fun dance to a variety of music ranging from Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald standards to songs by Rod Stewart, James Taylor, Adele, Aretha Franklin and more. There is probably more music that can be danced with Foxtrot than any other style of partner dance. It can be done compactly if the dance floor is crowded or with bigger gliding steps if there is a lot of room.
Over the 3 classes, we will build on the material taught each week. No partners or experience are required and we will rotate partners during the classes. We also welcome any ladies that want to learn to lead.Likewise, we welcome any men who want to learn to follow.
Aside from being fun and a great way to get exercise, a number of studies have shown that dancing on a regular basis may reduce the possibility of cognitive decline and may actually increase mental acuity. Some even say that “dancing makes you smarter!”
