This class is for you if…

  1. You already had a beginner-level (or higher) class with either Darrell or Sarah, and…
    • You are familiar with our warm-up and balance exercises
    • You want to express more personal style
    • You are ready for more isolations and fancy footwork
  2. You have not had a beginner level class with either Darrell or Sarah, but…
    • You are comfortable with Latin dance music
    • You have a good sense of balance and good endurance


Continue building on material from Summer Ballroom II. Refine your more advanced moves in Waltz, learn more Viennese Waltz, and American Tango. No partner needed. Dress comfortably for a movement class.


Students will already know basic moves and be able to identify the music for four different dances – Waltz, Tango, Fox Trot, and Merengue. Students will improve their good dance habits, emphasizing the importance of posture, frame, and connection/partnering. Students will recognize how those good habits are absolutely essential in the Leading and Following of moves, and how those good habits are what serve to make each dancer a welcome participant at any social or competitive ballroom dance event.


Each class period is two-hours, consisting of 90 minutes of instruction time followed by 30 minutes of guided practice time (where Darrell is available to help and answer questions). Class will occur on two Saturdays.


Two two-hour sessions:
– individuals: $25/person
– couples: $40/two people
No Partner is required – expect numerous partner changes. Please see the Changing Partners FAQ.

Payment is possible by cash or check (made payable to “Darrell Dieringer”). If needed, Paypal can be arranged.
