Smooth Operator / Feel The Rhythm

Learn to glide across the floor with grace and ease and shake your hips to the rhythms of the world. Feel like a modern day Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers with the romantic, elegant Waltz, the passionate, seductive Tango, and the jazzy-snazzy Foxtrot. Channel your inner Latino with the romantic Rumba, flirtatious Cha Cha, and bouncy East Coast Swing.

Class Dates:
  • Tuesdays 8:00 - 9:00 PM
What To Expect:
  • Smooth Operator / Feel The Rhythm builds upon your foundation from Intro To Social Dance. Each month we'll focus on two dance - one Smooth (Ballroom) dance: Waltz, Tango, or Foxtrot and one Rhythm (Latin) dance: Rumba, Cha Cha, or East Coast Swing. We'll also introduce proper technique, frame, posture, and lead/follow skills to ensure your success at higher level classes. After this program you'll be able to glide across the floor with grace and ease just like Fred & Ginger and shake your hips to the rhythm of the world!

  • Do I need a partner?
  • Nope :-) Singles, as well as couples, are welcome and encouraged to join our group classes. We rotate partners throughout class so you'll have so you'll have ample opportunity to practice and dance whether you sign up by yourself or with a partner.
  • Can I just show up or do I need to sign up in advance?
  • You may drop-in and register at the front desk. Please arrive 15 minutes early so we can complete your registration and start class on time. If possible, we recommend you enroll online before coming to class so you will be alerted to any last minute schedule changes.
  • I have some dance experience, do I have to sign up for Intro or can I sign up for a more advanced level?
  • We'd love to have you join us! If you'd like to skip our Smooth Operator class, please contact us at 843-388-2870, so a teacher can asses your level and recommend class placement.
  • How long should I take Smooth Operator before I'm ready to advance to the next level?
  • We recommend students take Smooth Operator 2-3 times (6-9 months) before enrolling in higher level classes. Learning to dance is much like learning an instrument in that practice and repetition is key. The first time you learn a figure, you will only be able to execute it at a very basic level. As you continue to practice, you will be able to dance a figure with more confidence, style, and correct technique. If you are wanting to progress more quickly we recommend taking private lessons and attending practice dance parties; both will help you immensely.
