Ballroom at CCS
The Ballroom program hosts the full range of the ballroom experience for our students. For some it is their first experience in ballroom; for others they have had the class several times before. The emphasis of the class is ballroom performance, including foxtrot, swing, tango, cha cha, rumba, waltz, and mambo dances in various ensembles. Students get the opportunity to show off their skills in a performance at the end of the semester of study.
Stanton's training in ballroom began with study at the local Fred Astaire studio. After this, he worked for two years with an independent artist, followed by additional stints with several other local artists. An online study from Times Square Dance Studio has been Stanton's most recent effort of the past 15 years of training in, and teaching of, ballroom dance.
