Friday August 30th

18 full years! 696 nights!


Richard Powers has just returned from teaching in Europe for the past ten weeks, and has brought back new music, and new waltz variations, for our Anniversary Ball.


Richard has also kept all of his FNW playlists since 2001, so tonight's sets will combine new music with the greatest FNW hits in the past 18 years.

Richard Powers and Clare Adrien
teach tonight's classes.
 
7:15 - A quick boost to the Waltz.  Get ready for tonight's 8pm class by ramping up on the timeless rotary waltz. Either get started on the basics, or make your partnering sweeter and your current waltzing flow more smoothly. This class is a pleasure even for experienced waltzers! If you'd like to introduce a friend to the joy of spinning in the arms of another, tonight is the night! Bring them along. All-levels class.

8:00 - The Kirov Waltz Variations.  This summer, Richard discovered that the younger and more creative waltzers in Russia have been spending the past year developing new on-the-fly rotary waltz variations. These are fairly easy variations that can be led and followed without needing to be rehearsed in advance. Richard collected 21 new variations in Kirov, Russia—more than can be taught in an hour—so he will teach the best dozen. Newcomers who take the 7:15 class will be fine in this class.

9:00 - Dance Party! Most of the waltzes tonight are new discoveries, gathered by Richard during his summer travels. Plus swing, tango, cross-step waltz, West Coast Swing, cha cha, BNP, salsa, Tokyo Polka, Lindy, NC2S, Romany Polka, hustle and more!
