Waltz dance lessons Stuart, Florida

The American Style Waltz in contrast to the International Standard Waltz, involves breaking contact almost entirely in some figures. For example, the Syncopated Side-by-Side with Spin includes a free spin for both partners. Open rolls are another good example of an open dance figure, in which the follower alternates between the lead’s left and right sides, with the lead’s left or right arm (alone) providing the lead. Waltzes were the staple of many American musicals and films, including “Waltz in Swing Time”sung by Fred Astaire.
The American Style Waltz is also commonly referred to as Slow Waltz. International Standard Waltz has only closed figures; that is, the couple never breaks the embrace. In contemporary ballroom dance, the fast versions of the waltz are called Viennese Waltz.

East Coast Swing classes in the treasure coast (772) 247-7954

 East Coast Swing is a group of dances that was developed concurrently with the swing style of jazz music in the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s, although the earliest of these dance forms predate swing jazz music. It is a simpler 6-count variation of Lindy Hop that evolved with swing band music of the 1940s and the work of the Arthur Murray dance studios in the 1940s. It is also known as 6-count Swing, Triple-Step Swing, or Single-Time Swing. East Coast Swing has very simple structure and footwork along with basic moves and styling. It is popular for its simple nature and is often danced to slow, medium, or fast tempo jazz, blues, or rock and roll. Occasionally, Rockabilly, aka Rock-a-Billy, is mistaken for East Coast Swing, but Rockabilly is more closely related to Western Swing.  Learn East Coast Swing at Save The First Dance in Stuart, Florida.
