Latin and Ballroom Dance is back!

By popular demand, we will again be hosting a free Latin and ballroom dance class for students, staff and faculty. Taught by our own Eduardo Galan, it will meet as follows.

Thursdays, November 15, 7:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m., Community Room of the Christopher Center.

Both singles and couples welcome. These classes will be social dance-oriented and as we move along we will focus on more of a clean ballroom style. The classes will consist of Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Cha-Cha, East Coast swing, and the Country Two-Step. At the end, we will gauge interest in continuing the class in the spring semester.
