Arts & Entertainment WCU's Educational Outreach offers ballroom dancing

Western Carolina University’s Division of Educational Outreach is offering the opportunity for members of the community to have fun while staying active this summer through a ballroom dance class.

The class will be held from 6:30 until 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday evenings May 24 through June 28.

Participants will learn several ballroom dance styles, including the waltz, tango, cha-cha, swing and fox-trot, as well as the basics of leading and following in a social ballroom dance setting.

Beginners are welcome, and attendees of previous classes also are encouraged to take part. Participants may attend with or without a partner. Comfortable, soft-bottomed shoes are required.

Instructor Heidi Turlington holds a degree in dance education from Meredith Collage and a master’s degree in physical education from WCU. Turlington is a former competitive dancer and experienced instructor.

Cost of the class for an individual is $59 and $118 for couples. This summer’s class has a new location in the dance studio located on the second floor of Breese Gymnasium on the WCU campus. Registration will continue through the first week of classes.
