Dancing on New Year's Day at Venture Out RV Resort, Mesa, Arizona

Also known as choreographed ballroom dancing, round dancing is unique because we have "cuers" who call out the dance routine (choreography) -- so each couple completes the same steps at the same time. The cuer speaks ahead of the music so we are dancing in perfect time to the music.

There are thousands of dances for the dozen or more rhythms that we enjoy, such as waltz, foxtrot, west coast swing, tango, bolero, slow two-step, rumba and cha cha. This means that someone has chosen a particular song and written steps and patterns which he or she believes fit the music.

Consider learning choreographed ballroom dance for these reasons -- 

  • Get smarter. Remembering your steps and timing makes you use your brain!
  • Feel younger. Dancing requires good posture which helps us breathe and walk better. It also makes us burn calories and stay fit. Best of all, it’s a weight-bearing exercise so it’s good for our bones.
  • Discover yourself. Everyone has an ability to move with balance, grace and poise -- it just takes practice. You will improve your confidence and self-esteem!
  • Experience a sense of gratification. When you are dancing with someone special and your dancing seems effortless, it takes you to a different place.
  • Hear different music. Our activity will expose you to a huge variety of music that you may never experience unless you learn to dance.
  • Make new friends. Take our word for it: some of the people you meet on the dance floor will become your friends for life!

Please consider joining us for a beginning round dance class this fall at Venture Out RV Resort in Mesa, Arizona. You don't need any dance experience! Our 8-week foxtrot and jive class will start at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, November 1. Contact us for details.

Dance with us at Venture Out  in Arizona

Our round dance classes are held in the Buena Vista Ballroom on the second floor of VO's Community Center.

Founded in 1968, Venture Out is a 55+ community, situated west of the Superstition Mountains in Mesa, Arizona. The resort has 1,749 park model homes, and it's one of the very few park model/RV resorts in the country where you own your land and home. Venture Out is governed by a nine-member Condominium Board of Directors, elected each year by the homeowners and is managed and operated by a staff of more than 50 employees. The resort started as a dream over 40 years ago by its two founders who saw the need for luxury accommodations for RV enthusiasts. The multi-million dollar Community Center serves as the hub of activities and events that are held daily at Venture Out. Its most impressive feature is the beautiful ballroom overlooking the majestic Superstition Mountains.

Join us for the 5th Annual Dance and Dine

Our 5th Annual Dance and Dine, co-hosted by Gene Krueger & Sharon Wise, will be on Sunday, January 1, 2017 at Venture Out RV Resort.

We dance all our favorite Phase 3-4-5 songs and visit with friends from 2 to 4:45 p.m., and then we enjoy a great catered meal with BYOB.

Currently we have room for 7 couples, and then the Dance and Dine will be sold out. See the flyer here. You must be pre-registered to attend.

We hope you can join us to welcome a new year!
