Richard Powers teaches classes from 7:15 to 9 pm with Clare Adrien.  Richard is our dance music DJ from 9pm to midnight.

This is Richard's last FNW for 3.5 months, because of his back-to-back summer workshops.  Richard hasn't taught cross-step waltz variations at FNW for a while, so here is a rare chance to expand your waltzing.

hfm
7:15pm - Cross-Step Waltz Basics 101.  Learn the fundamentals and some easy variations.  Richard is the world's foremost expert in cross-step waltz, developing and naming it decades ago.  Learn cross-step waltz from the source!
      If you already know cross-step waltz, come for dozens of pointers to make your dancing even better, or just for the joy of waltzing.  If you're a beginner, please arrive at 7:15 for the first steps.

8pm - Favorite New Cross-Step Waltz Variations.  Tired of leading or following the same old cross-step figures? Get ready for fresh, new moves.  Some are graceful and flowing, some are flashy, some whimsical, some surprising.  You'll love them.  Newcomers who take the 7:15 class will be fine in this class.

9 pm - DANCE PARTY!  This is actually Richard's first FNW this year without a special theme, so he's going through his 10,000 dance songs to choose 44 great ones, including some new discoveries.  
Waltz, swing, tango, cross-step waltz, West Coast Swing, cha cha, BNP, salsa, Tokyo Polka, Lindy, NC2S, Romany Polka, hustle and more!
