UBC Dance Club Advanced Class – Week 6
November 11th, 2010

It was nice to be back at the SUB Ballroom, since last week was a double Latin lesson. I was pleased to see that many of the dancers remembered most of what was taught 2 weeks ago in our double Standard lesson. We covered a lot during that last class, so this week we did a lot of review.


UBC Dance Club Advanced Class – Week 4
October 27th, 2010

ubcdanceclubLast night we had a double class of Ballroom at UBC, because Kyryl was out of town. Thanks to all the dancers for staying focused and continuing to learn over the full 2 hours. Maybe it was because I ended up turning the class into a fun competition between the guys and the girls, but nevertheless we sure got a lot done!

UBC Dance Club Advanced Class – Week 2

ubcdanceclubLast evening, we concentrated less on figures and more on technique. The main idea for Week 2 was connection. You must be connected within your own body and within the couple.


UBC Dance Club Advanced Class – Week 1
October 6th, 2010

ubcdanceclubLast night marked the start of another year at the UBC Dance Club. Every year, we enter the class with high hopes of copious learning and fun-filled classes. Last night, well… let’s say that there was an air of nervousness. Unlike previous years, there is only a handful of returning Advanced Class members, which means that quite a few of the students are brand new to this level. To their credit, many of them have graduated through the levels at the UBC Dance Club, and should find confidence in that.
