Argosy Dance

Multiweek Courses

From September through May, the following are offered: 

Private Lessons for individuals, couples or small groups, by appointment, at the Argosy II gallery or other locations on Mt. Desert Island and Downeast Maine.
-  10-week Introductory Social Dance series (1 hour per week, introducing Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Swing, Cha-Cha, Rumba and Salsa) for individuals who:
- Have always wanted, but never had the time or opportunity, to learn to dance,
- Used to dance, have not done it for a while and want to shake the rust off, or
- Have an event coming up (wedding, family or company party, etc.) at which they would like to dance.
No partner is required.  This course represents the best value for students’ time and money, and has produced hundreds of happy dancers over many years!  Tuition is $100/person for the entire 10 week sequence, payable in advance.  The next iteration of this course will start in early February, 2013, 7-8 PM, pending space availability in Ellsworth.  Dance lessons make wonderful personal or holiday gifts!  Please call or email to inquire or register.  A previous participant's comment - "Thank you so much for the joy your class has sent into my life."  With an occasional skip week for holidays or other committments, this course will finish before the December holidays.
(A Single-Weekend Version of Introductory Social Dance above is also available, but covering six dances only, for people who may find it easier to schedule one concentrated weekend rather than 10 successive weeks.  The weekend version of this course is obviously more physically demanding than the 10 weekly sessions, but will get you there faster.   Please email or call to indicate interest.)
- A 10-week Intermediate Social Dance series (1 hour per week, extending knowledge of the dances introduced in the Introductory courses, or learning new dances including Bolero, Mambo, Quickstep, Samba, Argentine Tango, Viennese Waltz, International Styles, etc., by participant request and choice.)  No partner is required, but either of the Introductory Social Dance courses above, or comparable experience, is assumed.  Tuition is $100/person for the entire 10 week sequence, payable in advance. The next iteration of this course will start in early February, 2013, 8-9 PM, pending space availability in Ellsworth.  Please call or email to inquire or register.  As an added benefit and opportunity, registrants in the Intermediate Series are invited to review and practice further by participating in the Introductory Series that takes place immediately before, at no additional cost.  
(A Single-Weekend Version of Intermediate Social Dance above is also available, extending knowledge of the dances introduced in the Introductory courses, or learning new dances, by participant choice, for people who may find it easier to arrange one concentrated weekend rather than 10 successive weeks.  The weekend version of this course is obviously more physically demanding than 10 weekly sessions, but may be easier to schedule for busy people.  Please email or call to indicate interest.)
