Downtown Memphis Couples Class

It was another gorgeous night for our second Downtown Memphis Couples Class. We tried to offer something for every mood by starting with simple swing (fun), easing into rumba (sexy), and wrapping it up with waltz (elegant). Adding a few twists and turns made for a little challenge and a lot of fun.

All the participants did a great job, and we found out afterward that we even had a celebrity in our midst. Miss Black Tennessee International Ambassador 2020 now has a new skill in her repertoire!

Special thanks to the Downtown Memphis Commission for allowing us to use the space. They even pressure washed it before our arrival, so everything was spic and span.

And this couple deserves a special shout out because they attended our spring class and came back for more!

Thanks also to Wendy Adams who was cruising downtown with her camera that night and caught some great action shots.

Might just be my everything.

Somehow this pair manages to be both elegant and laid back, which made them super fun to work with. Of course, their first dance turned out beautifully, but what I really love is that you can see how much fun they’re having while they do it.

Enjoying learning together.


So Smooth!

Dancing in the moonlight…

Our first free couple’s class in the Downtown Memphis Commission Sunken Mall was a hit! (The decorating plans not so much. Outdoors. Candles. Breezes. Should have seen that coming.) Four intrepid couples came out for some dancing and romancing. We started smooth and sweet with slow lounge, and then kicked it up a notch with some push-pull swing. There were lots of smiles, a few missteps, some pretty good dancing, and no broken toes. I call that a win!

Socially distanced fun for all!
