The House of Dance announced that it will be hosting a weekend-long dance event Oct. 12-14 which will include Salsa, Ballroom, Swing, and the original Washington, D.C.’s dance of Hand dancing and R&B Line dancing.
The House of Dance, which features adult and youth dance classes, high-energy workshops, and live performances, is opening its 2,500 sq. ft ballroom to host a community dance event for adults the weekend of Oct. 12-14. Each night will have a different theme and music-genre and will begin with a dance lesson by the multi-talent and trained House of Dance instructors.
- Friday, Oct. 12 will kick-off the dance weekend with lively and energetic Salsa starting at 9 p.m. until 12:00am. Attendees will listen to the spicy-charged music of Latin club music, Bachata, Merengue, Cha Cha, and other Latin-infused music – provided by DJ Bulldog.
- Interested in learning how to Dance with the Stars? Join the House of Dance on Saturday, Oct. 13 for Ballroom and Swing. Lessons begin at 8:15 p.m. and attendees will learn the basic steps of a combination of Waltz, Foxtrot, Swing, Rumba, and Tango. Partners are not required to attend. The fun begins at 8 p.m. and ends at 11 p.m.
- Sunday, Oct. 14 learn the dance that originated right here in Washington, DC in the early 1950s – Hand-dancing. This dance is a slower, jazzier, bluesy type of dance that eventually turned into the West Coast Swing. Come out and learn the moves to a swift Jazz and Motown-feel of music. No prior knowledge or partner needed for this night. Music starts at 2 p.m. and ends at 5 p.m.
“This weekend-long dance event is an opportunity for adults to have a night out, learn a couple of dance moves, and just enjoy themselves,” said Donna Jordan, Owner of the House of Dance. “We wanted to give folks an opportunity to experience something new and social in a safe and fun place. The instructors and myself are really looking forward to this weekend-long event.”
