If you like “Dancing with the Stars” your gonna like “Sequence Dancing”
SEQUENCE DANCING COMES TO WESTCREEK!
If you are a big fan of “Dancing with the Stars” you may be happy to learn that the Villages of Westcreek is now offering a new class called “Sequence Dancing” starting on October 7, 2019. “Sequence Dancing” is a subcategory of ballroom dancing where all couples perform the same set of steps and movements simultaneously. Sequence dancing encompasses many different rhythms, such as waltz, tango, salsa, and swing, as well as many others.
The benefits of such a class are virtually identical to the benefits one would get from participating in any partner dance class. A comprehensively written article on the subject can be found here:
This dance style (Sequence) is perhaps the first of its kind ever to be introduced to the social dance community at large here in South Texas, if not the entire country. This is an unparalleled opportunity for social dancers who are tired of doing the same old dance styles and steps, to the same old music at their usual ‘dance haunts.’ You can be part of a pioneer group in this historical (in the social dance scene) movement for next to nothing. The instructor Andi Ahmad states that his goal for the dancers is to “help rejuvenate and rekindle the standard of their dance life and repertoire.”
These classes are for anyone who wants to enjoy partner dancing in a healthy day time social and community environment (minus the sleaze and rowdiness of nightclubs and some dance halls). Anyone can benefit from this class. One does not necessarily have to be an experienced or high-level ballroom or social dancer, although prior dance experience will undoubtedly be an advantage. Sequence Dancing is a great stepping stone for those who want to learn how to dance, but do not currently have or want to commit the financial resources at an expensive dance studio.
Initially, this class will be targeting senior citizens. The class will meet every Monday from 2 pm till 4 pm at the VWOA Community Center Hall. It is open to all adults (18 and above). Grandparents may bring their grand-kids along, provided that they are properly supervised, and not allowed to run loose on the dance floor.
