4-Week Series

Wednesdays: May 25, June 1, 8, and 15


$15.00/class; $12.00/BDA member

Descripton: In this 4-week class series, we will cover the basic steps to some of the most popular social ballroom dances: Foxtrot, Tango, Waltz, Cha Cha, Rumba and Swing. Each with its own unique characteristics, these dances are fun, low impact, easy to learn, and can be danced to a wide variety of music. Experience the elegance of the Waltz. Discover the drama of the Tango. Shake your thing--dancing the Swing! Participants can choose to learn the leader and/or follower role, regardless of gender. Class is geared toward (but not restricted to) students 55 and above. No prior experience or partner necessary.

Attire: comfortable, non-restrictive clothing. A skirt that flares out while spinning is always fun, but certainly not required. Ballroom shoes, jazz shoes/sneakers are welcome, but socks or bare feet are also perfectly fine. Street shoes are not allowed on studio floors.

Contact: Call 978-866-9637 or email Please pre-register by email. I look forward to hearing from you!

Biography: J Michael Winward began dancing at a young age in his backyard. It was here that he forced all the neighbor kids to learn choreography, to be performed in the front yard. He later studied dance and drama at Bennington College (Vermont, USA) , and the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (Austria). It was in Salzburg that Michael began partner dancing, learning traditional Austrian folk dance. Upon returning to the US, he began a career as a professional ballroom dancer with the Fred Astaire Dance Studios. During that time, Michael was awarded numerous regional, national and North American titles, sanctioned by the North American Same-Sex Partner Dance Association. Recent work includes a principal dance role in Disney's The Finest Hours. He is currently living in Boston's South End, choreographing new work, performing with Public Displays of Motion, and teaching ballroom dancing across Greater Boston.
