Led by champion dancer Sharone Levit, Ballroom Class's professional instructors lay a foundation for singles to socialize while attaining the elegant craft of ballroom dancing at weekly mixers. The first half of each two-hour session delves into the arts of prancing to Latin-inspired melodies and biting a rose stem without suffering roundhouse kicks from wayward thorns. Each step is carefully taught so that novice strutters may quickly grasp new moves and participants of more advanced skill levels still feel challenged. During the final hour, dancers practice fresh shimmies and twists with cominglers while sipping beverages and snacking on hors d'oeuvre. Since classes meet each week for one month, students gain several chances to introduce themselves to a number of singles or experiment with a quartet of disguises and accents.
