Dances Listed by Category
  These lists are offered so you can easily find dances based on
how easy they are, their dance style or music style, and if they are appropriate for a holiday.  

Notes on Beginner Dances

      Please feel free to select your own music for any of my beginner dances. Beginner lessons need that flexibility.  For example, if you want to teach "Winter Wonder Walk", it certainly does not need to be done to a Christmas song.
      In case you need a slower song, I almost always offer slower song options on my step sheets.    I would caution you not to take things too fast too quickly when teaching beginners; but, on the other hand, be careful not to "dumb down" your beginners by never giving them fast beginner dancers or they will have trouble progressing to those faster songs they will find at the intermediate level.  On the step sheet for "Step Back" I have a long list of songs covering a large tempo range. That is a fun dance to help increase confidence with faster tempos.
     Also on the topic of choosing music:  Perhaps you like a song that is normally used for an upper level dance. Why not try it for a beginner dance?

     The category "Upper Beginner" contains dances that some might consider Level 1 dances because some instructors teach them in their introductory courses. Each region and each instructor is different when it comes to what they consider constitutes a beginner-level dance. Likewise, some dances in Level2 might be classed as Low Intermediate by others. Classifying dances is difficult, especially when the dances are your own!
