What is round dancing?

Also known as choreographed ballroom dancing, round dancing is unique because we have "cuers" who call out the dance figures.

We enjoy all the ballroom rhythms such as waltz, foxtrot, tango, rumba, cha cha and west coast swing -- just to name a few. Interesting and challenging routines have been written to fit all types of great (new and old) music.

Since the routines are "cued," dancers can perform difficult patterns without having to memorize hundreds of songs!

Dancing at Venture Out RV Resort, Mesa, Arizona

What can dancing do for you?

  • Get smarter. Remembering your steps and timing makes you use your brain.
  • Feel younger. Dancing requires good posture which helps us breathe better. And 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 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!

We'll be offering a class for beginners who have no prevous round dance experience. You'll learn both waltz and cha cha in just a few short months! The first class will begin at 10 am on Thursday, Jan. 4, 2018. We hope to see you at Venture Out Resort.
