Aggie Wranglers Dance Lesson
Sat, Mar 23, 7-9 pm, Gym (Bartula Family Life Center)
Grab a partner and come out for a fun night learning some new country-western dance skills with the Texas A&M Aggie Wranglers! After a demonstration of their unique, high flyin', death defyin' polka and jitterbug routines, three Aggie Wrangler couples will teach basic footwork of the polka and how to embellish it with turns, spins, and advanced transitions, including some of their own eye-catching moves.
This class will be centered on learning the fundamentals of floor dancing and basic transitions. We will cover the basic footwork for polka and clockwise turns, and then build on those steps with more advanced transitions. The compilation of transitions will build from simple spins to more complex hand changes, and the class will emphasize dancing moves sequentially to music. Whether you have two left feet or you have been dancing for years, we’ll teach you something to get you spinning down the dance floor in no time!
