Moving to Music Dance Instruction is pleased to announce that, for the third consecutive year, Diane Weinberg is again teaching a FREE dance workshop in South Jersey!
2017 Camden County Women’s Health Conference
This year’s event will be held on Saturday, April 8, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. At its usual venue at Eastern Regional High School in Voorhees, NJ, this event features hundreds of vendors plus workshops throughout the day in four time slots, along with a continental breakfast and box lunch. The entire event is all FREE and is open to everyone, regardless of residence. Although targeted toward women, men and children are also welcome. Event details can be found at http://www.camdencounty.com/event/2017-womens-health-conference/. Because attendance at each workshop is limited, advance registration is highly recommended for both the event and workshops. The workshops are varied and some of them are sure to pique your interest!
In addition to teaching a merengue and rumba basics workshop from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., Diane will be sharing a vendor table throughout the day with RieOrganize!, a local professional organizer. Based upon past experience, Diane suggests that attendees register as soon as possible for her workshop (in both 2015 and 2016, there was a wait list!), as well as other workshops of their choice.
Diane’s workshop is the only one that is held on the auditorium stage so that it can accommodate a larger number of participants. In accordance with event guidelines, workshop pre-registration is required, but Diane typically allows additional attendees to participate in her workshop. Unlike prior years in which Diane taught only merengue basics to individuals, her plan for this year is to expand on that same model and also add some partnering and, as time allows, rumba basics.
As in prior years, Diane especially invites you to visit her table and/or participate in her workshop to pick up a $5.00 discount coupon that can be used for a future group class or private lesson.
Merengue and Rumba Dance Lesson Workshop Description
Starting out with a model created by Cheryl Burke (of “Dancing With the Stars”), this free dance workshop will get you moving and your heart pumping with some basic and easy merengue dance steps. This workshop is designed for beginners and for those with some dance experience. An overall great way to have fun!
These basic merengue dance steps are individual moves that can be danced by both followers and leaders and, mid-way through the workshop, some partnering (lead-follow) instruction will be added with some of the moves already taught. As time allows, a few rumba basics will also be introduced. For those who are interested in “lead-follow” dance lessons, Diane offers both group classes and private dance lessons in this and other Latin dance styles (including salsa), as well as ballroom dances, various styles of swing dance, hustle and country-western two-step.
