EZ Fourth Wall  – ease your way into the 4th Wall feeling! Watch for next restart date
Learn how to jazz up your dance style and make it shine!
The “Fourth Wall” refers to the conceptual barrier between a performer and an audience. In this course we'll explore how to push past the Fourth Wall and find a connection to an audience. Using only one-wall dances we'll start with foot placements and then embellish each dance with technique such as arm motions, spotting, Latin action, and more. The result? Dances that would be suitable for performing. Whether your goal is preparing to join our performing team or taking your line dancing to the next level, this course will help you learn how to share the positive energy dance brings to your life. 
Prerequisite:  This course is designed for students with some line dance experience who are accustomed to picking up new material with ease and are interested in learning technique (arm motions, spotting, Latin action, etc.).  Cape Sands Ballroom Team members and non-team members are all welcome to join. 
Wednesday mornings,   8:00 – 8:45 am - restarts January 8

Information For all Courses

  • No partner required

  • Wear casual layered clothing

  • Bring a water bottle and small towel

  • Shoe Policy: Carry with you some non-marking, flat, flexible, closed-toe/heel/instep shoes that slide easily on the floor but provide sufficient traction to be safe when turning.  Please plan to change into your dance shoes upon arrival. This helps Brewster Council on Aging keep their flooring clean and in great shape for everyone to enjoy.  Not permitted in class:  sandals, mules/slides/clogs, platforms, slingbacks, heels.  Please make sure your shoes have some means of staying on your foot (tie or strap). Floor conditions vary from classroom to classroom and can be affected by humidity and other factors.  Some students carry a dance bag with more than one type of shoe so they can match their choice of shoes to the current floor conditions.

  • How to join?  Come to class a few minutes early with water bottle and shoes in hand.  Swipe your card in the lobby, change into your shoes, sign in, make payment, and you’re ready to dance!

  • For your safety and the safety of your classmates, please check with Karen before joining if unsure of your dance level.

Live, Love, Line Dance!
