The Dances
The most common dance is the One Step, which is the easiest ballroom dance ever (it's just walking). Also included are the Tango, the Waltz, the Two Step and the Fox Trot. There will be a dance class in the hour preceding the event (noon to 1).

This is a joint presentation of the Lively Arts History Association and the Lanterman House Foundation
