This class includes information, pointers, and conditioning for Ballroom and Latin dancing and competing in dancesport competitions, as well as Ballroom and Latin Rounds.

If enough couples RSVP far enough in advance for Smooth & Rhythm Rounds, we will add them on February 27.

Paolo and Liene are one of the Top Competitive Couples in the World, who hold many top Titles, including the 2013 United States National Professional Classic Show Dance Champions and 2014 World Professional Ballroom Showdance Championship Finalists!
Paolo & Liene Di Lorenzo
Their Competition Rounds Class is open to amateur couples or singles.

In this class, Liene and Paolo teach pointers on how to improve your dancing and how to compete successfully in dance competitions.

The class normally includes Ballroom and Latin rounds (and will also include Smooth & Rhythm rounds on February 27, if enough people RSVP for them), in a simulated dance competition. Each student couple (or single) dances their own choreography during the simulated competition rounds.

Students can choose to participate in only the International Standard Ballroom rounds, only the International Latin rounds, or both. Each International Standard round includes all five of the International Standard dances – Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot and Quickstep. Each Latin Round includes the five International Latin Dances – Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba, Paso Doble, and Jive.

Similarly, if enough couples RSVP indicating interest in Smooth and/or Rhythm Rounds, those Rounds will be added, and a similar sequence of Rounds will be followed in those Styles of Dance.

This simulation of a competition is great practice — especially if you are considering or planning to enter a dance competition – and great exercise, which will help improve your stamina!


Every Thursday Evening is “Student Night” with Liene & Paolo! After the Competition Rounds, stay for more Great Classes with Paolo & Liene! See their Thursday Night Schedule Below:
