Richard Roxburgh, the actor best known as the icky Duke from Moulin Rouge!, had this to say about his experience dancing: "My most difficult thing so far, to be brutally honest, has been to waltz as if I knew what I was doing." But according to the Broadmoor Waltz Club, you can learn, and succeed, with some basics and good ol' fashioned practice. Interested? The group's giving a free lesson from 6:30 to 7:30 tonight at Austin Bluffs Community Church (5090 Austin Bluffs Pkwy., broadmoorwaltzclub.com). You'll need a partner and a phone — call 598-2885 to reserve your space. — Edie Adelstein
