D. Choreographed Ballroom (aka Round Dancing)

Below is a list of fall 2014 beginning round dance classes in Mesa.  This is taken from Pam Hurd's PDF list of round dance classes & instructors; see her list for more details.  (The lower left corner of  the 2nd page list these beginner classes). Update:  These are REVIEW classes; the real beginner classes start in Jan 2015.

What is Round Dancing:     (also known as Choreographed Ballroom Dance)?
  • "Round dancing is a form of ballroom dance since we learn and practice many rhythms just like ballroom dancing. But it also is different because we have cuers who tell us the name of each step so we don't have to memorize a routine."
