Ballroom Dancing for Couples 

Friday,  October 13 – Sunday, October 15, 2017

Led by Julie and Joe Donato


Have you always wanted to learn to dance? This is a joyful weekend for committed couples seeking to learn to dance or improve their dancing, to develop an activity to enjoy together, and through this activity, deep in their faith. Through the verbal and nonverbal instruction of partner dancing and the role of leading and following, we learn how to improve communication, create trust, and find more joy in relationship. We will learn the basics of waltz, foxtrot, swing, rumba, cha-cha and merengue in a relaxed, noncompetitive and fun style. The week and also includes time for reflection and quiet.

Joe and Julie Donato met at a swing dance. Joe was a long time ballroom teacher in the Philadelphia area, and moved to the Hudson Valley when they were married and 2012. They opened their own studio in Poughkeepsie and have enjoyed teaching couples and singles there and throughout the Hudson Valley. With members of this dance duo also have many years of leading retreats, worship groups and small group ministry. They are known as patient encouraging teachers and have led hundreds of people to enjoy the mental, physical and spiritual benefits of social dancing.
