About Delmarva Dance, 15 June 2008 [cached]
Delmarva Dance was founded in 2005 by Alice Hajjar.For years, Alice frequently traveled to and vacationed at the Eastern shore beaches.After many unsuccessful attempts to find a place to ballroom dance on the Eastern shore, she decided to look for a facility in which to teach and host regular dances.She contacted the Mid-Shore Family YMCA in Salisbury, MD, and they were very enthusiastic about offering ballroom dance instruction for their membership.A partnership was formed and classes began in September 2005.Based on successful enrollment for 3 months, additional classes as well as private lessons have been offered at that location ever since.In addition to Salisbury, she now offers dance instruction in Selbyville, Delaware, and Ocean City, Maryland.
Group lessons and private dance instruction are provided solely by Alice Hajjar.A resident of Frederick, Maryland, Alice travels to the Eastern Shore to teach private lessons and group classes.When Alice began dancing in 1999, she quickly learned that ballroom dancing was her passion.She has trained with and been coached by ISTD-certified (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing) instructors.After receiving beginner teacher training at Ballroom Dance in Frederick in Frederick, Maryland, she taught there from 2002-2004.From 2004-2005, she taught private lessons from her home in Jefferson, Maryland, and from 2005-2007 she taught private lessons and group classes at Dancing Made Easy in Westminster, Maryland.

"It gives people a chance to see that they can learn to dance," said Alice Hajjar, ballroom dance instructor at Delmarva Dance."People don't think that dancing is something that they can learn.They believe it's a natural skill.I hear 'I have two left feet' or 'I can't hear the rhythms,' but someone can teach you how to do this."
Hajjar teaches classes in Salisbury at the Mid-Atlantic YMCA and also in Selbyville at Selbyville Middle School.She took a break for the summer but classes will restart in September.
She has taught ballroom courses on the Cha Cha, Waltz, East Coast Swing, Fox Trot, Rumba, Tango and others.
The classes teach students to recognize and understand rhythms and to match the proper dance with the song.
The benefits from learning different dance techniques surpasses showing off in the club, Hajjar said.
Dancing is exercise that doesn't feel like exercise.It's not only physical, but mental as well.Hajjar said studies have shown that learning the steps and thinking about the moves can significantly reduce the chances of having Alzheimer's later in life.
"You can't just get up and dance these, you have to think about the steps," she said.
Her classes are held for three consecutive weeks with dances held at its conclusion in Salisbury and in its midsts, in Selbyville.
Delmarva Dance is holding a Welcome Back Dance on Sept. 8 to let students get their feet wet and allow others to see what it's all about.
Both "Dancing with the Stars" and "So You Think You Can Dance?"also made people aware that formal dancing is a fun activity.
"I don't think people thought about it as much before (the shows)," Hajjar said."They see it and think, 'Maybe we should try it.""
Hajjar said the ballroom classes are a great way to spend time as a couple, as a family and with friends.
