Let’s Dance! sponsors Dance Workshops 2010

Let’s Dance! is sponsoring Dance workshops 2010 — two special sessions this summer with instructors Richard and Debbie Love.

Swing into Summer! Part II Dance Series features an Intermediate West Coast Swing Workshop with the Loves Saturday, June 5, 3-6 p.m.

 Additional West Coast Swing practice sessions are also included on each Sunday in June 4-6 p.m.

There are no set rules with West Coast Swing. Improvisation is the name of the game. Once you learn the basics, the dance is all yours!  Come and join the fun in May as Deb teaches basic dance steps with the patterns and styling of West Coast Swing.  Deb will get you ready for the June West Coast Swing intermediate class to be taught by Richard Debbie Love from Colorado Springs. 

The cost cannot be beat!  $20 per person per workshop!  Get a head start on a new season of dance and join us as we “Swing into Summer.”

A dinner and dance will follow the dance workshop on June 5. BYOB cocktails and potluck dinner, 6:30-7:30 p.m. followed by exhibition dances and general dancing 7:30-10. No charge.

The Loves are in Pagosa for a Swango! and Night Club Two Step Workshop 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, June 1. Swango is $15 per person,   7-8 p.m. Night Club 2 Step is $10 per person. Or, $20.00 per person for both classes. Practice times for both will be from 8-9 p.m.

Swango is a combination of Tango and Swing.  Tango, the dance of romance, epitomizes elegance, glamour and grace.  Swing dance is fast and freewheeling.  Mix them together and, voila!, you get Swango. 

Night Club Two Step evolved from other dances like the Rumba and the Hustle. The Night Club Two Step is typically danced to mid-tempo ballads, using eight beats for its basic steps. This dance style follows a quick-quick slow rhythm; however several slow steps can be used in succession to emphasize the romantic feeling often associated with night club dancing. You’ll learn how to do dance turns, how to hold your partner and how to put individual step together to create a beautiful and romantic dance. If you’ve been looking to spice up your moves on the dance floor join Richard and Debbie Love on June 1.

All dance events are held at the Pagosa Lakes Clubhouse, 230 Port Ave.  For more information, contact Deb at 731-3338, or e-mail
