A girl. Meeting new people. Learning to dance. Getting involved. Needing one credit. Looking for a hobby. Regardless of the original motives of wanting to learn how to dance, the members of the newly-founded Ballroom Dance Club have found their niche.
All skill levels are welcome to join Ballroom Dance Club. The club meets every Tuesday from 7-9pm in C101 and is open to anyone who is interested. You can come alone or bring a friend. According to several members it is a great place to meet new people. There is no fee.
The evening starts with an hour lesson and is followed by an hour of open dance.
“I’m pleasantly surprised and I’m really starting to like it,” said ballroom student and club member, Jacob Jones.
Lessons are taught by Derrik Coghill and his dancing partner, Maria Tyurina. Both Coghill and Tyurina having been dancing for several years and will be teaching multiple styles of dance.
“I want to get people that want to dance, to dance,” said Coghill.
Katie Jones, president, started dancing last term, in Graeme Clark’s Ballroom Dancing.
“I fell in love with dancing in Graeme’s class and it was my way of wanting to learn new things and dance more than the two times a week we do in class,” Jones said.
According to Clark Rogue Community College is considering adding other dance classes based on student interest.
