Cha Cha – Beginner – 8 week Series

November 29, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, happening 9 times

What: Private ballroom dance classes for ACHEV at House of Dance – Lesson for 45 minutes, dance practice to music for 15 minutes.  This is an 8-class series taking place on Wednesdays October 4, 11 , 18, 25 November 1, 8, 15, 29 (no class the day before Thanksgiving).

We will be learning Cha Cha for two months in a row, and the kids will learn a lot.  This is such a fun dance, and we use it quite a lot.  It is a Latin dance, but we use it often with popular music as well.  No experience necessary.

Who: ACHEV members, grads & guests 11 and up.  ACHEV Members can invite guests: guests do not need to be ACHEV members, but need to be homeschooled.  Please clear invited homeschooling friends through Bonnie at bonnieadair@verizon.net.   Current ACHEV members are given priority on the sign up sheet, ACHEV grads next, and then guests.  ACHEV members, sign up asap because I will start adding grads and guests to the sign up sheet when I see that spaces need to be filled or one – two weeks before the first class.  We must have equal number boys and girls in order for the class to work.  We can keep a waitlist in case space opens up prior to the first class in a series.  Minimum of 4 boys and 4 girls in order to hold these classes.  Partners rotate throughout the class.

Where: House of Dance , 3007 Bunsen Ave, Ventura 93003   https://www.pmhouseofdance.com/

When: Wednesdays 4pm – 5:00 pm

Cost: $40 per student per month, payable 10/4 & 11/1.    Pay in advance via Venmo or Zelle (info at https://www.pmhouseofdance.com/)  Or pay with cash or check when you arrive on 10/4 & 11/1.

What to Bring & Wear: Bring your own water bottles.  There is no drinking fountain.  There is no special dress code, other than ACHEV’s general dress code for all events which is, “modest and appropriate for the occasion”.   Some girls choose to wear dresses and skirts, but you can wear pants or shorts.  Boys can wear pants or shorts.  Be comfortable.  If you do not have felt bottomed dance shoes, try to choose a shoe that is not grippy and rubbery on bottom like a basketball shoe.  Leather soled dress shoes or Vans-type skateboard shoes are okay.  Absolutely NO flip flops.  No sandals, no Uggs.

Payment Policy:

Payment for each series is due in full at the beginning of the first class of the month.  There will be no refunds or credits for missed classes.  We understand that sometimes illness or unexpected circumstances come up on short notice, but in order to keep these classes affordable, House of Dance cannot issue refunds or credits.    If you know before a series starts that you will need to miss one class, please check with the organizer to make sure that will be okay before signing up (it depends on a variety of factors), and the full amount of the series will still be due at the first class.

These classes are not drop-in classes.  Signing up in advance is required.  If you sign up for a series, your classmates are counting on you to be there for all the classes other than illness or other unavoidable/unforeseen circumstances, because these classes are most enjoyable when everyone has a partner.  Additionally, learning dance is sequential and if you are not able to attend the first class, or will have to miss more than one class, it can be difficult to catch up and it can hold up others in the class.

If you have special circumstances, please feel free to talk to me about it!  Bonnieadair@verizon.net or 805-504-6457 call or text.

We must have an even number of boys and girls.  Any girls in excess of boys, or vice versa, are considered to be on the waitlist.  We must have a minimum of 4 boys and 4 girls to proceed with the class.

Sign Up Here For Cha Cha in October & November
