Stonewall Resort to host Dance Weekend

February 27, 2012
The Inter-Mountain

Following up on previously successful ballroom and Latin dance weekends, Stonewall Resort in Roanoke will welcome WV Dance Inc. back on March 30-April 1 for a social ballroom and Latin dance weekend.

The weekend is geared toward people who have never tried ballroom and Latin dancing before and also those who are more experienced but are looking to refine their skills.

The weekend begins March 30 with evening lessons in East Coast Swing and will be followed by a dance party featuring all different forms of both Latin and ballroom dances. Saturday activities include dance lessons in cha cha and ballad as well as an evening dance. There is no dress code for the weekend, but guests are encouraged to wear shoes with either a leather or suede sole to them to facilitate ease of movement.

"After our very successful January dance weekend at Stonewall earlier this year, we are looking forward to our March weekend at Stonewall," said Craig Giffin, president of WV Dance. "We find that these weekends are an enjoyable getaway for people and Stonewall Resort features great facilities for our events and our guests, including wonderful restaurants for the participants."

Steve Ludwig, director of sales and marketing at Stonewall Resort, noted that dance weekend guests "enjoy not only the dance instruction but also the camaraderie that develops among the participants."

Giffin noted that several students from both in state and out of state have attended the multiple workshops that WV Dance has held at Stonewall and also in other parts of West Virginia.

"Customers from as far away as North Carolina keep coming back to the various dance weekends that we have held first at Pipestem then later at the Stonewall and Greenbrier resorts here in West Virginia," he said.

Additional information, reservations and prices are available by contacting the resort at 888-278-8150 or
