Following the Alberta Government’s September 15/21 announcements updating Public Health Restrictions to address the Province’s surging COVID-19 numbers and the precarious health care situation, the CueSteps’ Board has chosen to delay Classes until January, 2022.
OUR DANCE PROGRAM
Our Program follows the international standard created by Roundalab. Their Program established definitions and descriptions of actions, movements, and figures in the various dance rhythms, ranking them in terms of difficulty. Roundalab also designed a curriculum covering Beginner to Advanced which enabled dancers to learn and progress through the moves, figures, and choreographed dances of the various rhythms. Classes are informal, well-organized, and enjoyable!
- First Year Beginners: Introduction to waltz and two-step with focus on dance timing, form, and flow. (Phase I and easy Phase II)
- Second Year Beginners: Enhancement of waltz and two-step, continued emphasis on timing, form, and flow. (Phase II) With completion of this level, dancers can participate in most of the round dances cued between square dance tips.
- Subsequent Classes: Introducing additional rhythms, figures, and dances as students advance (Phases III, IV, to IV+). Rhythms include Cha Cha, Rumba, Foxtrot, Jive, Quickstep, Mambo, Slow Two Step, Bolero, West Coast Swing, etc.
