“Dancing brings married couples closer together and is also a great way to increase your social life,” Trent said. “Dance classes also make you more confident, especially when you go out dancing. It is heart healthy and good for blood flow, too.”

During Foxtrot for Beginners, dancers will learn the beautiful, romantic, American Style Foxtrot. Whether new to ballroom dancing or just needing to brush up on some of the basics, Trent will have dancers gliding across the dance floor in no time. Foxtrot for Beginners will start at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 5, and run each Tuesday until March 5 in the Hatheway Dance Studio on L&C’s Godfrey Campus.

Waltz for Beginners will help participants learn how to grace the dance floor. The class will feature basic instruction in the elegant movements of the American Style Waltz. Dancers will complete this class ready for their next social gathering.
