We have all experienced that awkward moment at a dance when a slow song comes on and we discover that we have no idea how to dance without a heavy beat. Where do you put your arms? Do you just stand and sway, or is it more complicated than that?

If you have ever wished you could just skip that part of the evening, or at least know the answers to the questions presented above, now is your chance.

Snow College’s Ballroom Club invites all students to come and learn about the art of ballroom dancing. Whether students are old hats at ballroom dancing or have never tried but want to learn, the Ballroom Club wants to extend a welcoming hand and teach just what moves you need to make slow songs more fun.

The Ballroom Club is dedicated to teaching students how to dance and providing a good night out. The ballroom dance team attends Ballroom Club to help beginners learn the steps to different ballroom dances, so don’t worry if you have two left feet. “My favorite part of the club is learning the basic dances,” Andre Herrares, a member of the dance team stated.

If you are a beginner, you are in good hands to learn about the art of ballroom dancing. The ballroom team meets every single day to practice their dances and prepare for performances. The club and the team also take part in campus service projects, and they occasionally have treats. “It’s fun.  If you like to dance just come and join,” Herrares said.

Ballroom Club meets every Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the dance studio at the Business Building. They spend about an hour with an open dance floor before calling it a night. All students are welcome.

Adria Riley was born on July 11, 1995 and is from Syracuse, which is between Salt Lake and Ogden. She is a freshman here at Snow College and is planning on majoring in English. She isn’t sure if she wants to go into philosophies, journalism or English education. She decided to come to Snow College because she wanted to get out of her house out on her own, it’s cheap, she loves the atmosphere and because of it’s small size. Adria’s favorite color is black because it goes with everything. It creates contrast with brighter colors. In her spare time she likes to read, write, play the viola, sew and party. She enjoys hiking but does not like other physical activity. If Adria could go anywhere in the world she would want to visit all the temples, go to New Zealand to see the Lord of the Rings sites and she would also like to visit the sites where the Avengers movie was filmed. Her favorite quote is “Lock up your libraries if you like, but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.” Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own. Something unique about her is she is a quarter Nicaraguan.
