Cha Cha (4 week series)

Build your confidence and sass appeal with the super fun Cha Cha
every Tuesday in October from 6 to 6:50 pm.

We'll start with a fun, simple sequence that we will develop with balance, posture, rhythm and arm styling options.

Each week will build on the previous one and the pace of the class will be determined by the prepaid students--drop ins are welcome, but will have to jump in and hang on. :D

We need 12 prepaid to make this happen, so please help spread the word. (Prepay deadline Friday, Sept. 30)

No partner required.

4 weeks (pd in advance) $40/person (Cash or Check to ECDS)
Drop In Rate: $15/person
