Dance Classes

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, CueSteps has suspended all classes and events until further notice.

However, Mary & Bruce Nelson have made Virtual Round Dancing available via the online Zoom Platform. For further info, please see Dance Classes/Class Dates & Schedule.

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.
