For dancers that have taken Ballroom I and completed the course. These steps and techniques will increase your skills to become a good ballroom dancer. More patterns and variety in this class will satisfy any novice dancer.

The Foxtrot will teach you timing, proper posture in the top line area, lead and follow, good footwork and how to maneuver on the dance floor using 4-5 steps.

The Waltz will show you correct posture and body alignment in relation to your partner. Develop balance and grace. Learn to change your center weight properly over the balls of your feet. With this dance you will use rise and fall, a must in the Waltz and Foxtrot. The techniques of this dance will carry over into other dances using 2-4 steps.

The Rumba is a dance that teaches patience, timing, rhythm and how to measure steps to amalgamate patterns. Stay on time while maintaining your rhythm throughout the dance. Learn the fundamentals of Latin-Cuban style rhythm so your hips do the work and transition from one pattern to another. Hand and arm style will add elegance and carry over in other ballroom dances. 1-2 patterns in this dance should do the trick.

The Swing will show you how much fun it is to dance. With the Swing use 3-4 of the showiest step patterns done on the floor. Focus on footwork, foot position, style and technique. Reacting to the steps will help men become better leaders and ladies better followers. The steps are design to allow you to hang loose while keeping the character and style of the dance to your favorite music.
