Dance Lesson – American Tango

Fri 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm – Arena (Oregon Ballroom 202)
Sat 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm – Coliseum (Oregon Ballroom 203/204)

Developed out of the first styles of Tango from North America and Europe, American Tango is a simplified version of Argentine Tango that is danced by everyone from beginners to world champion competitors. American Tango uses sharper movements than its Argentinian sibling, and is known for its characteristic head snaps.

Dance Lesson – Salsa

Fri 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm – Arena (Oregon Ballroom 202)
Sat 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm – Arena (Oregon Ballroom 202)

Is it a Colombian dance? Is it a Cuban dance? Well, there are a plethora of adherents to both and both enjoy a popular following throughout the United States. We are proud to announce that… we're only teaching the LA style. Ok, so there’s some (or a lot) of room we won't cover, but that shouldn't stop you from learning what is probably the most famous and popular social dance in the US. If you want to learn how to shake your hips at any outing, you have to learn salsa.

Dance Lesson – Single Time Swing

Fri 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm – Coliseum (Oregon Ballroom 203/204)
Sat 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm – Arena (Oregon Ballroom 202)

The modern adaptation of the iconic Lindy Hop, the Single Time, or East Coast Swing is the star-child to inherit the swing genre in the modern age. True to its stylistic roots, it enjoys a huge following, danced all over the states for the aficionados of suspenders, polka dots, and big band jazz. If your look is so out of style that it's totally in style, don't miss the Single Time Swing.

Dance Lesson – Slow Waltz

Fri 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm – Coliseum (Oregon Ballroom 203/204)
Sat 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm – Arena (Oregon Ballroom 202)

Originally known as the Boston Waltz, having taken form on our east coast, the slow waltz as it is now called is perhaps the most widely practiced International Standard dance. Usually serving as both the greenhorn's first foray into the genre as well as being the perfect intro into the more iconic Viennese version (the word version perhaps being unfit here as it is the originator of "waltzing"). This is a must-learn if one wants to master the International Standard styles.

Dance Lesson – Viennese Waltz

Fri 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm – Arena (Oregon Ballroom 202)
Sat 10:00 am - 11:30 am – Coliseum (Oregon Ballroom 203/204)

If you're thinking about dancing hand-to-hand under ornate chandeliers with hoop skirts twisting and turning while seamlessly transitioning from partner to partner, you're thinking about the Minuet, not the Viennese Waltz. Although it eventually rose its way to prominence among high social circles, the Waltz, with its emphasis on rotation and improvisational nature, required relatively little training to execute and scandalously exposed the bare ankles of the women participating. Despite the prevalence of lewdly exposed ankles, we will continue forward with teaching you the elegant and timeless Viennese Waltz.

Japanese Bon Odori (folk dancing)

Sat 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm – Arena (Oregon Ballroom 202)

An Epic Multi-Table Event for Level 1-10
On this holy day of Leira and Mask, folk of all walks of life don masks and costumes to disguise themselves and play at being other than what they are. Festivities begin in the evening, when candles are placed in hollowed-out pumpkins carved with faces. Tricks and pranks of all kinds are common on this night, and pickpockets are rife on this day, so few carry much coin with them, having secreted it away somewhere the previous evening. Instead, people fill their pockets and belt pouches with candies. Come celebrate with us on the darkened streets of Baldur's Gate.

Join the league and help the royal twins track down their father, the High King, by playing against other league participants! Each game you win brings the twins closer to their goal.

Since most of the members of the club are female, another male is needed for the more dangerous assignments. Thus, the scopophobic (the fear of being looked at) Morino Ryoushi is inducted as a member, right after he confesses his love for Ookami…

Although such experience has made him inhumanly fast and tough and skilled at things boys aren't normally skilled at, it has also left him in an awkward position, as his parents have racked up such a huge gambling debt that they have sold Hayate to the yakuza for the value of his organs. In a desperate attempt to avoid that fate, Hayate decides to become a "bad guy" and kidnap someone to be held for ransom, but his efforts to do so are mistaken as a confession of love by the girl he targets. When he helps save the (as it turns out) ultra-wealthy 13-year-old Nagi from real kidnappers, she takes him in and gives him a job as her new personal butler (and love interest) until he can pay off his debt. But Hayate is more attracted to Nagi's beautiful teenage maid Maria, and head butler Klaus is initially disapproving of a boy with such a poor look. And then there's Nagi's pet Tama, who is also a force to be reckoned with.
