Beginner Ballroom Dance Workshop - High Prairie

Are you feeling the need to get up and move? Our ballroom dance workshops are a great place to have fun while learning the basics of ballroom dancing. You will not only learn the waltz, rumba, fox trot and jive - but instructors Mike and Michele Barter will also teach ballroom etiquette. These workshops have trained several generations of homeschoolers in the art of ballroom dance.

Students benefit from the training in social graces as well as the opportunity to spend time with other home schoolers. The day consists of instruction and practise, followed by a potluck supper. After supper, you will have time to change into your evening attire for the ball beginning at 7:30pm.

Bring your own lunch and a main dish as well as a salad or dessert for the potluck supper. Ball begins at 7:30pm

Modest semi-formal to formal attire appreciated.

Cost: $100 per family.
