Competition Class & Rounds (Ballroom & Latin) –
7:00 PM – 8:00 PM

From 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Thursdays in April, Paolo and Liene Di Lorenzo — the reigning 2013 United States National Professional Classic Show Dance Champions and one of the Top Professional Competitive Couples in the World(!) — will teach a one-hour class on preparing for dance competitions, including simulated International Standard and International Latin competition rounds. The class is open to amateur couples or singles.

In the Competition class, Liene and Paolo advise on how to improve your dancing and how to compete — including pointers and strategy on how to enter and leave the dance floor, take proper bows, negotiate floorcraft, and behave during a dance competition.

Then they simulate a dance competition during the class. The student couples dance “first-round,” “semi-final” and “final” competition rounds in the International Standard dances, alternating with rounds in the International Latin dances during the class.

Each student couple (or single) dances their own choreography during the simulated competition rounds.

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

This simulation of a competition is great practice — especially if you are considering or planning to enter a dance competition!

The cost of the Competition Class & Rounds is $15.00 per person.


International Slow Waltz Class (8:00 PM – 9:00 PM) + Structured Practice Session (9:00 PM – 10:00 PM)

Following the one-hour Competition class, Paolo & Liene will teach a one-our class from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on International Style Slow Waltz. Each month Paolo and Liene cover a different one of the five International Standard dances — Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Slow Foxtrot, and Quickstep — during this class. For more information about this type of dancing, see the Goldcoast Ballroom Resources > Learn About Dance page.

At the end of the International Style Slow Waltz class, Paolo & Liene hold a one-hour Structured Practice Session, from 9:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., which is open to students in the International Slow Waltz class.

During the Practice Session Paolo & Liene dance with the students, and the students dance with each other. When time permits, simulated Five-Dance International Standard & Five-Dance International Latin competition rounds are also held during this Practice Session.

The cost of the International Slow Waltz Class is $15.00 per person (which includes the one-hour Structured Practice Session following the class).


Cost of Classes – Taken on any One Thursday Night:

The cost of the one-hour Competition Class & Rounds is $15.00 per person.

The cost of the one-hour International Slow Waltz class (including the one-hour Structured Practice Session) is $15.00 per person.

Or students may attend both of these Thursday night classes (+ one-hour Practice Session) taught by Paolo & Liene on the same Thursday night for only $25.00 per person!
