Dance Party with Ellen Brodsky!

​Come to Ellen Brodsky's dance parties and have a ball learning different styles of dance. Monthly dance parties will feature a different style of dance each month: Disco, Salsa and Swing! Try one, two, or all three classes—pick and choose what works for you. This class is for both couples and singles! You don't have to bring anyone or anything except your own two feet.

October 18: Disco Hustle Dance Party!
Saturday Night Fever! At first, many disco dancers improvised their own dance styles and dance steps. Later in the disco era, popular dance styles were developed that persist today, like the Hustle, the Cha-Cha, and the Electric Slide.

November 15: Salsa Dance Party!​
Salsa Dance can be slow or fast. Using the same steps, dancers express beats ranging from slow Bolero to the fast Mambo. Up and coming musicians are getting awards for incorporating the excitement of Latin rhythms.

December 13: Holiday Swing Dance Party!
Swing dancers love blues, rock ‘n’ roll, and 40’s Big Band music. The most popular dance on the East Coast, swing dancing is a must for having fun with the local bands on Cape Cod.​ ​

Join the party with Ellen Brodsky and have a great time learning new dance styles in this fun and energetic class!
