Moni was nervous. She was about to give her first class and she hoped it would all go well. She had a wonderful fiancé, Dexter Whitfield, that made her heart melt ever since they got back together in their last year at Hogwarts. Now they were starting over in America and she hoped her students would behave. She loved dance and she wanted to share her passion with them.She had put her hair up in a bun and dressed in a long dark green dress, that made her eyes pop out. She sat in her chair as she waited for her first students to arrive, sipping on her tea. She had sent a note to Dexter asking him if he was available to come and help her demonstrate the dance, but knew he could be busy preparing his own classes as well.

While one might not consider Camdyn a dancer by trade the boy had quite a few skills so why shouldn't he show them off? Not to mention the dance Professor was easy on the eyes as it was, so why not get to enjoy a totally awesome experience? Strutting into the classroom he winked at the Professor before going and leaning against the wall, waiting for the class to begin.

Venus yawned as she entered the room. Man, classes were boring. If it was not a requirement to attend them, she would be hanging out with her friends causing trouble elsewhere. She cast an eye at yet another new teacher as well as the fellow, but tiny, kitty cat - as the new Head of Wampus liked to call them. She wished she could stomp in, but they had to wear weird shoes that were not optimal for stomping in. She leaned against the wall a bit away from the tiny kitten.

Sara wasn't the best dancer in the world but she didn't think it was too late to learn. She figured that she was going to make a fool of herself with the possibility of her tripping over her own two feet. She kind of regretted taking so many classes as she wasn't sure if she was going to be able to keep up with all of them. Although she did have a feeling that she could make it work if she managed her priorities efficiently. She had no idea what dance they were going to be learning so she just leaned up against the wall.

If Elisa was good at one thing, that was failing while trying to multitask. In this case, she didn't think of the number of classes she's taking would be crushing her once the term starts so here she was after rushing from the Frog Choir to her common room then to the dance studio where the first class will be held. Once she stumbled in hurry and let out a sigh of relief as she's seen it didn't start yet, Elisa gave a small smile to the professor before leaning against the wall opposite of where the others are.

Matia wasn't one of the best dancers around but he really wanted to get better hence the reason why he had signed up for this class. He was surprise to see his cousins and brother there as well and greeted them with a smile and a wave as he waited to see what would be the lesson about.

Moni clapped in her hands to get everyone's attention and said: "Welcome to dance class everyone. My name is Professor Simone De Villiers. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. Now I want you to come over here, I have a list of pairings you will keep throughout the duration of these classes. Do not ask to switch partners. Thanks." She stood there with her parchment paper and smiled encouragingly at her students.

Pairings Leone Landi - Venus Milano
Matia Landi - Sara Milano
Camdyn Walker - Elisa Milano
Vincent Van Dalen - Kate Babson
Harriet Dax - Ryker Carson


She was a bit deceived that Dex didn't show up yet, but she understood he could be busy. She waited until all the students were paired up and told them : "Who in this class happen to know anything about tango?" She wanted to see if they knew some dances or if she had to really start with the basics.

[[Ooc: this list will be updated as students sign up...]]

Cam wasn't sure what to expect from this class but at this point in time he was seriously underwhelmed, his former dance instructor would be having a fit. Cam could see her slender body as she trotted around the room, sputtering in anger at something and certain parts of her body bouncing about. She read who they were paired with, Cam gave a blank stare as he had no earthly idea who the girl was or if it was even a girl he was paired with. So he guessed he would wait for whatsherface to make an appearance. "Tango is a partner dance that originated in the 1880's along the River Plata, there are several variations." He replied to the Professor's pointless question. At this point in time he had a feeling he was more qualified to lead this class than she was, in fact the thought had him smirking.

Elisa knew exactly who Camdyn was, not because she made his acquaintance though, only from around the classes. Her photo memory helped with remembering faces and names so when the professor announced her dance partner, Elisa looked up at him to see him looking around cluelessly. Giving it a few more seconds for others to find their partners, she slowly made her way to the opposite wall of the room to where he is at and leaned against the wall next to him, giving him a side-eye before turning her attention back to the professor. Unlike her, Cam seemed to have an idea of what they are doing and it somehow made the girl feel insecure about how the rest of the class will go.

Venus sighed as she made her way over to Leone. "Looks like we're partners cuz." Oh great, stuck with her cousin as her partner for the whole year. Though at least it was one that she got along with, and she was more likely to listen to him due to the fact that he fed her. Then the teacher asked about tango and she raised a hand. "If it's anything like the ones in No-Maj movies, it's also an awkward dance to do with a relative."

A girl approached him and Cam hoped she was his partner, because otherwise he was screwed. "You Elisa?" He asked under his breath, still loud enough she could hear it. He was clearly bored with this class already and he obviously knew more than the sexy professor, so it seemed like all he was here to do was to check the professor out.

Elisa eyed the boy only when he spoke up, if you can call that speaking because if she had a hearing problem, she doubted she'd hear him. Having no hearing problem so far, she turned her head to where the professor is to check if she is looking at them, the last thing she wanted was to get scolded by the dance instructor. Turning to look at him quickly, she nodded. "Yes." Elisa replied, a small smile tugging at the corners of her lips out of niceness before turning back to focus on what the prof is saying.

Cam was so bored of this class he was about to walk out, like why oh why had he decided to take this class? Of course he wanted to show of his skills but at this snail's pace he'd never be able to, for being so hot it seemed like the only thing in the Professor's head was a bunch of air, Cam smirked at the thought. The plain girl said she was Elisa and Cam nodded, not particularly concerned either way. Although he was debating just walking out of this class, consequences be damned. "Do you even know how to dance?" He muttered to the girl.

Elisa was anything but bored. The excitement of learning something new made up for the time they stand by the wall listening to the sweet Professor. Though her partner already looked bored and for some reason, it annoyed her. What's the point of signing up for an extracurricular if you're going to get bored at the very beginning? She was listening to the professor like she's in a trance when the boy spoke again. Slowly turning her head to him, she shrugged. "Not really." The way he said it made her feel insecure about it. Was there a pre-dancing class she happened to miss? Because if that's the case, she wouldn't be able to shake off her insecurity for the whole term. "You?" She found herself asking out of curiosity.

Moni wasn't really happy with some things going on right now.One of her students seemed bored and she wondered why he even signed up. The fact that there were cousins itaking the same class which she had no idea who was related to whom until Miss Milano pointed it out, made Moni sigh. "Unfortunately there are not many choices, here Miss." she said motioning around to the other few choices she had. "If you are too bored here or upset by having to dance with a relative, I'm not holding you here against your will. Just go... I want this class to be fun. Yes, I have to start with some boring basic chit chat as I don't know on what level each and every single one of you are, dance wise." If she'd have known what Mr Walker's opinion on her was, she might have sent him to detention or even forbid him to take her class until he apologized. But right now, she was clueless about it.

She looked around and start walking as she explained: "Ballroom tango originated in working-class Buenos Aires and the dance spread quickly through Europe during the 1900's, then moved on to the United States. In 1910, tango began gaining popularity in New York. Tango is danced to a repetitive style of music, with the count of the music being either 16 or 32 beats." She motioned one of the boys, Matia, to demonstrate posture with her as she added:"While dancing the tango, the woman is typically held in the crook of the man’s arm. She holds her head back and rests her right hand on the man's lower hip, like this, and the man must allow the woman to rest in this position while leading her around the floor in a curving pattern. " She placed the boy's arms in the right position and positionned herself as she explained again,while she showed them what to do.

"Argentine Tango is much more intimate than Modern Tango and is well-suited to dancing in small settings. It also retains the intimacy of the original dance. Several other different styles of tango exist, each with its own individual flair. Most styles include open embrace, with the couple having space between their bodies, like this, or in a close embrace, closer Mr Landi, yes I know it's close...where the couple is closely connected at either the chest or the hip area. Many people are familiar with ballroom tango characterized by strong, dramatic head snaps." She let go of the boy and asked around, raising a brow: "Any question so far?If not I want you to pair up and get into position." She fetched her water bottle and took a long sip as she scanned the room.
