Richard Powers, professor of dance at Stanford University and Angela Amarillas are back in Seattle to lead a workshop. In his workshops Richard will teach a hybrid cross-over weekend of waltz and swing, exchanging elements of each!

Richard has been teaching contemporary and historic social dance for 40 years. He leads workshops around the world and is a full-time instructor at Stanford University’s Dance Division. Richard’s emphasis is on flexible attentive partnering, creativity, developing one’s personal style, and the ability to adapt to the dancing styles of various partners. Whether you consider yourself a swing dancer or a waltz dancer your dancing will benefit from this weekend of learning and fun.

Registration:
To assure your immediate confirmation, register early and register with a “dance buddy.” A dance buddy is simply someone who is dancing the other role – leading if you’re following or vice versa. This carries no social obligation but helps insure that everyone has a partner during the workshops. Be sure to indicate the name of your dance buddy when you register.
