Ballroom dancing has made a comeback and here is your chance to learn this elegant and graceful art form. The Marygrove College Alumni Program Committee is once again offering nine, 1½ hour lessons followed by a dance where you can show off your newly acquired or finely honed skills.
Reuben Collier and Margo Lee ’00, both experienced instructors who love to dance, will guide you through the lessons and have you dancing like Fred or Ginger in no time. In addition to being fun, ballroom dancing is also very healthy, as it has physical, mental and social benefits. You can register on your own or with a partner. Please note that leather bottom shoes are required.
If purchased individually, lessons are $7 for alumni and FREE for students with ID, however alumni can purchase all nine lessons in advance for $40. Lessons will be held in the Main Dining Room in Madame Cadillac Hall from 6- 7:30 p.m. the following Thursdays: February 20, 27, March 6, 13, 20, 27 and April 3, 10 and 24, 2014. The dance will be held in Alumnae Hall on Saturday, April 26, 2014. Tickets are $20. Tickets purchased by April 12 will be entered into a drawing to win fabulous prizes. Proceeds from the lessons and dance will benefit the Jan Soleau, IHM Memorial Scholarship Fund.
