Dance with me

Welcome to my dance page! Over the years people have asked me to video record the dances I teach so they can practice at home.

Here is my first video and I’ll add more dances as time goes by:

    Hi, Carmen!
    Found your website, obviously – lol!
    But I can’t find the event that you mentioned when we met at last night’s ceili.
    Could you steer me in the right direction, or give me an idea what kind of dancing is involved?

    Hello Carmen — great to find you ‘online’! Could you please put me on any email list you have announcing your dance classes and events? I have a wonky schedule, but want to keep dancing through the winter as I’m able! Thanks for all this and your gracious presence.

    I love dancing, I do tap dance and freestyle though. Used to do ballroom some time ago. I do have to say I do love a good Charleston, which we have soon for our next exam. Seeing you dancing is a great inspiration for me.

      Thank you very much Rob! So nice of you to drop by! Life is busy and I appreciate you taking time to comment!

      These dance reviews are short and basically intended for my students to practice dances I have taught in class. Wish I could use the music (as so many instructors do on Youtube) but whenever I try to, a warning pops up that it is an infringement on copyright. Perhaps laws are stricter in Canada.

      I must make time to post more dances, as I have promised my students I will continue with these dance reviews. Never enough time! *BIG SIGH*

      Looking forward to your classes, I have fond memories of the dance workshop, teaching our waltz!
      Shall we dance?!

    Hi Carmen,

    I really enjoyed your dancing class. I was trying to practice one of the dances and can’t remember the steps. Could you send me the steps for Cucaracha?

    thanks,

    Hi Carmen: Dianne and I watched your dances yesterday and she says she will try and do them at home. I am surprised that she wants to come from Burlington. I love to come to class. Also wondering if I could do the intermediate class

      Hi Carolyn!

      Your are welcome to come to the intermediate class to see which class you prefer. We do a few of the dances that you already know and you have learned most of the steps we use, so you’ll catch on fine.

      See you at dance!

      ❤ carmen

      You’re welcome! It’s just for practicing!! You still need to come to class to have fun!! 🙂

      People keep asking me for dance stepsheets and then they have told me that the papers are too hard to follow. The video makes it easier. It will be a great way to review a dance at home, especially if someone is new or having difficulty with a dance.

      Thanks for taking the time to go to the library to write!
      Till we dance again!

        Thank you for coming to the dance workshop! You are a graceful dancer!

        I will send you my dance schedule, places and times. I teach in Waterloo this morning and Cambridge this afternoon. I have a class tomorrow at 10 AM at the Downtown Community Centre in Kitchener if you’d like to drop in and see if this class suits you.
