Friday Night Waltz: Artists from the East 2

Dj dancing starts at 9:00

Come enjoy a night of music by Asian and Asian-American artists to celebrate Asian Heritage month! Tonight's music--a revival of the popular 2019 event--will be filled with themed waltzes, polkas, swings, tangos, night club two steps, etc. among a few familiar classic anthems. Everyone welcome!

Dance classes start at 7:15 with long time Friday Night Waltz friend Stefan Warmuth


7:15 Polka Fundamentals
An intro to polka that will go through its multiple basics and fundamentally different technique pool.  Learn how to communicate its variations as well as conserve energy in this energetic dance.

8:15 Waltz- Orbits 
In Waltz you and your partner seem to run circles around eachother in the basic step.  We are going to work on making that efficient so that we can orbit each other in many different ways.  Come learn the ideas underneath so every move can include an orbit or at least what appears to be one...
