STEPPIN OUT WITH THE BLACKFORDS
WELCOME TO OUR WEB SITE –Wayne & Barbara Blackford
We are the resident ROUND DANCE LEADERS at *Tower Point RV Resort in Mesa, Arizona
What is ROUND DANCING? ROUND DANCING is actually Choreographed Ballroom Dancing. Each individual piece of music is choreographed and the dancers dance the same steps at the same time. To make it easier for the dancers the dance routines are cued so that while dancing, the dancer hears the name of the next dance step just before it needs to be executed, removing the stress of trying to think of what to lead next.
The dance routines predominately are written to international ballroom standards and include all dance rhythms – Waltz, Foxtrot, Bolero, Cha Cha, Tango, West Coast Swing, Jive, Paso Doble, Rumba, etc.
Choreographed Ballroom Dancing (Round Dancing) provides a great source of physical & mental exercise; social interaction and personal challenges.
