    • Class Notes: Ballroom Dance II -This course covers fundamental lead and follow techniques. You will learn intermediate, easy-to-remember steps and routines which you can use to navigate in any social setting or party. In each successive lesson, the class will build on materials learned in the previous classes. You will learn a series of step patterns for each dance, and the techniques and footwork that are associated with those patterns. You will also develop good technique, balance, and partnering skills. As dancers, you will then be able to flow more gracefully from one step to the next, making bigger movements with more turns and arm styling. And do it all with flair! May include Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Swing, Salsa, ChaCha, Rumba and Merengue. Prerequisites: None. Additional Course Fee: $7.
