The first course, “Find Pleasure in Social Ballroom – Beginning,” is a course designed for first-time students who are interested in learning the basic dance figures of the most popular rhythms, such as the Cha Cha, Swing, the Foxtrot, the Waltz, and the Rumba. Beginning Sept. 8, this course is offered on Tuesdays, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., at Western Maryland Hospital.
Intermediate-level courses include “Dancing Like Stars,” which is offered on Wednesdays, from 7 to 9:30 p.m., beginning Sept. 16; “Find Pleasure in Social Ballroom – Intermediate,” which is offered on Tuesdays, from 8:15 to 9:30 p.m., beginning Sept. 8; and “Intermediate Social Ballroom,” which is offered on Tuesdays, from 10 to 11 a.m., beginning Sept. 8. Intermediate courses are designed for those who have previous ballroom dancing experience.
