"Waltz and More"

Joe & Julie,

Just want you both to know how much we enjoyed your “Waltz and More” Class tonight. Joe, you did a wonderful job of instructing the new sequence – what a great move! Julie, the music was simply delightful and so beautiful to dance to. We have only been dancing about a year, but this was surely one of our favorite events ever! Well worth the hour and a half drive! We look forward to next month already. Thanks for providing such a wonderful Sunday afternoon!

Steve Starkman performing with Julie at the January party.

​Julie and I are hoping to start this dance up soon at the new location. The event is modeled after the successful "Mostly Waltz" dances Joe and Julie attended and enjoyed in Philadelphia, and fueled by the desire to share that same experience here in the Hudson Valley.  Each month we will bring in a different professionally trained musician for a duet of live Waltz standards that are played with sensitivity to pacing, song length and a range of tempos including Viennese Waltzes, along with Ballroom standards, including foxtrot, swing, and tango. Attendance will be made up of singles and couples of all ages and skill level, with an excellent ratio of leaders to followers. We hope you can join us for one soon!
