AND IN FALLS CHURCH, VA

The Promenade Dancing class will resume once again in Virginia for middle-schoolers in Fairfax County, as well as from other areas once the local kids have had a chance to enroll. It will include 9 sessions between November, 2005 and April of 2006. Two classes of 25 couples will take place on designated Friday evenings at 7:00pm and 8:30pm and will include many of the Ballroom, Latin, Disco/Hustle, Swing and Country/Western dances in addition to ettiquette and other social skills. Boys will wear sport jackets or suits and the girls will wear skirts and white gloves. This has been a highly successful class for two years and enjoyed tremendously by those attending. For anyone interested in enrolling, it is suggested to do so with a dance partner, though no one will remain with the same partner throughout the series. Partners will change routinely each week, so it's only necessary to have an equal number of boys and girls.
