There might be extra practices before competitions (times and locations will be emailed out) and the schedule is subject to change due to holidays or space conflicts.

Ballroom team has three practices a week, which are divided into two different components 1) Team Lessons, and 2) Kimmel / Red Bean Group Lessons.

1) Team Lessons are attended by Newcomer team members and serve as the first introduction to ballroom dance for new members. They are more ensemble oriented, and build on the sense of cooperation and team spirit. More importantly, they focus on learning basic steps and technique.

2) During the Kimmel / Red Bean group lessons, the team learns with our coaches Stanley and Jennifer. These lessons are not open to Newcomers (those dancing with the team for less than a semester). The two lessons are divided between the beginner/intermediate group and intermediate/advanced group. In these lessons, the team learns new dance steps, with an emphasis on technique and form, and receives small application assignments depending on the dance to challenge the dancer to become accountable for his own progress on and off the dance floor. Expect a lot of exercises and team exercises at these lessons. You should bring a notebook to these practices to write down everything you’ve learned.

Team Lessons

Tuesday 8:30pm-10:30pm at Palladium Aux Gym B

Practices will alternate in styles of dance (for complete information about steps and the dances we’ll be covering each week, see the Newcomer Syllabus on our Groupspaces account under the ‘Files’ tab). Every lesson will teach a Standard dance for 1 hour and a Latin dance for 1 hour.

If you are also interested in learning more about American styles of partner dancing, we encourage you to also join the Latin and Ballroom Club at Coles.  They meet on Saturdays from 4-6pm in the dance studio and these lessons are a great supplement to what we teach on team.  For more information, please see http://club.nyuballroom.com/
