Taste and Twirl will begin with a complimentary Nissley wine tasting followed by a one-hour dance lesson, culminating with an open dance session. On February 18th, you and your dance partner will learn The Hustle.
The Hustle is an American dance that originated in the '70s. It is danced to club hits of both the '70s and '80s as well as contemporary times. It is designed to be highly dynamic, flashy and powerful--think Disco Music! For this reason, it is no secret why the Hustle is seen by those who know it well as one of the most enjoyable dances to perform.
Absolutely no dance experience is needed because experienced ballroom dance instructors, Doug and Cindy Rapp, will be guiding you through the basics.
Doug and Cindy Rapp are the owners and instructors of Iron Bridge Ballroom Basics, a small dance studio conveniently located between Mount Joy and Columbia. After more than 15 years of being actively involved in the dance community, Doug and Cindy opened the studio in their home and began teaching group and private lessons to anyone, couples or singles, interested in learning the "basics" of Ballroom, Latin, and Swing dancing. Doug likes to refer to dancing as "engaging the mind and body in harmony" because of the unique benefits it provides for both physical and mental health.
Tickets are $25 per person which includes a complimentary Nissley wine tasting and dance lesson followed by open dancing to practice what you've learned.
Wine by the glass/bottle, beer, and light snacks will be available for purchase. You are welcome to bring your own food. All ages welcome. Must be 21+ to drink.
