Applause Dance Factory’s professional instructors Jim Frechette and Tatiana Kadylinsky illustrate graceful movements across the dance floor in a variety of styles, imparting elegant steps and drawing pupils closer together. A brimming schedule of group classes introduces guests to prancing companions and the footwork of swing, tango, and a variety of other styles. Fifty-minute lessons for couples unite 15 or fewer duos to study the sweeping flow of swing and ballroom styles every Wednesday at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. and every Friday at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. The regularly rotating monthly schedule of courses may also include Latin rug-cutting sessions, which use driving rhythms to encourage exhilarated movements more effectively than a hornet dance partner.
The talented dancemasters draw upon poise, confidence, and certification in methods used in instruction by Arthur Murray, Fred Astaire, and the National Dance Council of America. As guests dip and whirl their way across the floor, a giant disco ball and intelligent lighting system cast shimmering beams that allow twirlers to surround themselves with impressive colors without inciting a peacock riot.
Applause Dance Factory
Certified dance instructors who have trained with Arthur Murray, Fred Astaire, and the National Dance Council of America impart ballroom, Latin, and swing moves to dancers in all-level and wedding-specific courses. The main ballroom's mammoth disco ball, grown from a sequin planted on the roof, tosses light across a blacked-out ceiling that, along with high-tech lighting, fosters a nightclub atmosphere during weekly dance parties.
