Broadway Dance Company offers Ballroom
dance lessons in both Social Dance
and Competitive Dancing in the Phoenix,
Scottsdale, Mesa, Tempe area. Even though many people think
ballroom is a competition style of dancing such as
and International Latin and not used as social
dance, there are many ways to use ballroom dancing
such as waltz, foxtrot and tango out in a social atmosphere. There are
many places in Phoenix and AZ where
you can use social dancing for fun. The more popular
dances, rumba, cha-cha , salsa and swing are equally as fun and enjoyable
to those who just want to dance to meet people or enjoy being a part
of the social dance community. Our certified dance instructors have
a wide variety of knowledge in dancing, not only in International
Standard, International Latin dances, but
also in the social dances such as swing, salsa, and
country dances. Wedding
dance lessons are also available
In our Ballroom dance classes, we offer Waltz,
Tango, Foxtrot and Viennese Waltz. These are
considered the American style dances. The European, or International
style, includes these dances as well as the Quickstep.
Even though these are considered ďformalĒ dances, they are still very
easy to learn and can be used out on a social floor. Many social occasions,
Christmas parties, fund-raisers, cotillions and weddings, play a variety
of music, and dancers always want to be well rounded with a variety
of dances in their repatoire. That is why we offer dance classes in
every style of dance. In the Phoenix area, there are
many places where dancers utilize their ballroom skills.
Waltz is a very graceful dance that teaches the dancer
balance, to be light on their feet, and on time to the music. Some formal
occasions still play waltzes as the main dance.
The Foxtrot is a relaxing, easy-going dance that goes
with light jazz music; music by Michael Buble, and Frank Sinatra, and
any other big band artists.
Many people consider Tango to be the new Salsa.
The drama, passion and heavy rhythms appeal to heart and to the ear.
Tango dances, or milongas, are popping up all over many major citiesÖincluding
Phoenix. Ballroom dancing in Arizona is one of the most popular ways
to get out and have fun!
Many people that take dance classes just want to enjoy
themselves, meet people and join a large and growing community. At Broadway
Dance Company we will guide you through learning the dances,
and help you to enjoy dancing out in the real world.
We offer dance lessons in the American Rhythm style
and International Latin style of dancing.
The most commonly used dances are salsa, cha -cha , rumba and
swing. Salsa dancing is definitely one of the most popular
trends around the United States. Almost every major city has salsa or
Latin clubs, especially California , Arizona and New
Cha -cha and Rumba are Latin dances,
and can be used in any Latin dance club, but they are also a great way
to dance to popular music anywhere its being played. Live entertainment
can be found around the Phoenix area, from piano duets, to 13-piece
bands! There is always somewhere to dance!
Swing dancing is also very much a large part of the Arizona
dance community. Swing bands and dances are held all
around the Phoenix
area. There are two main types of swing; East Coast and
West Coast. The East Coast swing is danced to fast,
rock and roll, and can be learned in single, double or triple time.
West Coast Swing has more of a bluesy, country feel,
and can be used in many dancing venues.
The first dance as husband and wife at your wedding
is very important. It is something that will be remembered by you and
your family for the rest of your lives. Most people havenít danced together
in a formal setting, with people watching, and a video camera rolling.
This can be a little nerve racking, especially if you donít know what
you are going to do.
We know that planning a wedding can be a very exciting and stressful
ordeal. Having a pre-planned dance can make the moment you dance together
much easier to handle. Many people are now coming to dance studios and
teachers to help them choreograph their first dance for their wedding
and to ease some of the stress of all the planning for this event.
There are some important things to consider when you are planning your
first dance. First, please leave enough time before the wedding for
us to complete the dance. The dance will not look natural or complete
if you feel rushed or nervous, because you didnít give it enough time
for practice. Most people that have not had dance lessons before need
at least a few months before the wedding in order to feel comfortable
dancing. Remember, this dance is about the first time you are dancing
together as husband and wife, it isnít a high school dance where you
do the hold and sway.
Another important thing to think about is the song
that you want to dance too. This should be something that is meaningful
for both of you. People want to see something that is real and emotional,
it is a wedding, right? Even though you may think that people want to
see a Tango show for your first dance, it isnít necessarily so. This
dance is about you both being in love and being together for the rest
of your lives. A wedding dance that looks awkward or too out of your
realm of comfort wonít be a pleasant experience. We want you to look
your best and feel confident on the most important day of your lives.
Most couples think their first dance is the ONLY dance
they will be dancing at their wedding. If you are planning on having
music and a dance floor for the whole night, think about what you want
to be doing. There will be many guests that want your attention through
out the night, but remember this day is about you two. There will be
some moments where you just want to be in each others arms, enjoying
the music together.
Besides learning your wedding dance, it is a good idea to learn some
basic steps that will allow you to do some dancing together or with
other guests after your first dance. If your father-in-law asks you
to dance, after you have clearly danced with your husband, you want
to know how to look graceful and have and idea of what you are doing,
right? Even if it isnít the wedding dance routine. We can plan your
wedding dance as well as give you confidence on the dance floor with
some of the other dances.
The music you choose will also determine what dances those are. Consider
the type of people you are inviting to the wedding. There will most
likely be a wide range of ages, and therefore probably a wide range
of music tastes. You want to appeal to some of the older generations
as well as the younger. If you want some big band music as well as the
top 40 hits, or say rock and roll, learning a foxtrot or swing as well
as your routine will give you some flexibility in your dancing. Having
a variety of music will ensure the enjoyment of all the guests, and
will keep your dance floor packed.
