Moraine Park Technical College will be offering an Introduction to Partner Dance class on Monday evenings at 6 p.m. in the Cyber Center Café, located at 235 North National Avenue, Fond du Lac.  Beginner instruction in Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Cha Cha, Rumba, Swing and Salsa will be taught, focusing on a different style each month. A new session will begin Monday, Oct. 4.

Julie Wilson, owner of Shut Up & Dance Ballroom Studio, will lead the class.  Wilson comes to the dance world as a former competitor in the International Latin category of Dancesport. Formally trained in over 25 styles of partner dancing with extensive training in ballet, tap and jazz, Wilson brings a sense of humor and great enthusiasm to her classes.

“Dancing doesn’t have to be work, but it’s a great workout and it should be fun,” Wilson said of her career that doubles as both hobby and passion. Singles as well as couples are encouraged to attend the class. No prior dance experience or partner is necessary.
