Hi everyone, Our opening dance at the Eliot St. church is coming up this Saturday 9/15 from 7-11pm. Lilia Weisfeldt and Bradley Mather from Ballroom in Boston will be teaching! The lessons are: 7-7:30 Two Step with Lilia and Bradley 7:30-8 Line Dance with Bradley Lilia and Bradley will also be performing a two step routine! And there will be another special performance as well. We hope to see you there! Here is a little more info about Lilia and Bradley. Whether it's ballroom, country, west coast swing or line dancing, Bradley and Lilia love to be on the dance floor! Both Bradley and Lilia have been teaching various dance styles for many years and are passionate about spreading the awesomeness that is dancing to as many people as they can. Lilia opened Ballroom in Boston in 2010 because she wanted to focus on helping adult beginners feel confident and comfortable on the dance floor. Bradley joined the team in 2017 and shortly thereafter Lilia and Bradley discovered that they both loved country music. By January 2018 Lilia and Bradley started competing in the country circuit and are having a ball showing the world that Boston can be country! So far, Bradley and Lilia have won every competition they attended! Additionally, Bradley won the US Line Dance Choreography Championships this year and has had the honor of teaching his winning choreography at several large line dance events. Whatever the venue, Bradley and Lilia love to be on the dance floor teaching, competing or performing!
Hey everyone, we're expecting another nor'easter Wednesday, so stock up on what you need before dance, okay?
Folx! I am once again allowed to partner dance (provided you all are gentle with me). Spine specialist approved! So please come on by and spin me around the floor tonight! I've missed it!
Hey friends! It looks like I'm only called until 7:30 for rehearsal tonight. I should be able to make most of the dance!
Hi do you ever have dancing on Monday nights? 😃
