Looking for a different way to spend the evening? Why not dance among the palms?

Free Cha-Cha Lesson on March 27th!

The State Botanical Garden of Georgia recently opened its Visitor Center to the public on Tuesday evenings so people could experience the Garden at a different time of day.
“Evenings are a special time to come and visit. In the Conservatory or out in the gardens, there are scents and sounds and an atmosphere totally different from the daylight hours” explains garden director Wilf Nicholls. “Every Tuesday night, the Visitor Center with Dondero’s Kitchen and the Garden Shop will be open and we are planning all sorts of different events to draw people to the garden.”
One upcoming event will be an opportunity for people to learn a new dance inside the great room of the Visitor Center & Conservatory. On March 27, 2012 at 6:30 Ron Putman will be teaching the cha-cha to couples and singles who have always wanted to try a dance class. This free event will start with a demonstration of the cha-cha, then Putman will teach basic steps and variations. “In an hour participants can be dancing the cha-cha to Latin music, Maroon 5 or Lady Gaga” says Putman.
Now a professional instructor and an award-winning competitive dancer, Ron has competed in several states and two countries with four professional and three amateur partners. When not competing, Ron teaches Ballroom, Swing and Country dance as well as wedding choreography to individuals, couples and groups. On April 1st, 2012 Putman will be performing with Barbara Dooley at the Classic Center in Dancing with the Athens Stars 2012, a fundraiser for ProjectSafe.
