Weekly Group Classes & Workshops

Weekly group classes and special workshops are an excellent way to enhance your learning while meeting other active people. We teach a variety of group classes, offering something for everyone. Over the course of a group class, a student will discover “muscle memory” and learn about the music and history of a dance style, in addition to important technique, styling and pattern knowledge to be successful on any dance floor.

Bring your dance partner or bring yourself; singles are welcome! In our partner dancing classes, rotation is encouraged but not required, so if you wish to remain with your own special someone that is very okay.  Our teachers make the process of learning to dance both fun and easy for beginners and advanced dancers alike.

We offer a plethora of dance styles and levels, along with flexible pricing options, so feel free to try as many classes as you like until you find the one(s) that fit you best. In some group classes, teachers will teach in a dance routine format, beginning the choreography at the 1st class of the month and building on that choreography for the duration of the month. These classes are called “Series” classes; we recommend that students begin Series classes the first week of the month. If a class is not listed as a “Series,” you can join the class at any time, since each class is a self-contained lesson.

We offer class packages for those that may wish to simply buy a package of classes and do a sampling of different styles, choosing their own curriculum path. In addition, the class package solution offers a discount price break; the larger the package you purchase, the bigger the discount. If you are planning on joining a Series class and will attend every class of that Series, you can get the biggest discount by purchasing a Series class package. (See Pricing & Policies for further details and package expiration dates). Our hope is to provide you with options that make your choice of learning to dance easy and economical!

Please let us know your thoughts, sharing your ideas that help us to serve you better. Thank you! :)

Dance Parties

Our weekly dance socials and dance parties are a great way to practice what you are learning in your group classes and private lessons while socializing, meeting new friends, and enjoying healthy exercise! Check our calendar for upcoming dance parties.

Private Lessons

The fastest way to learn to dance is with private lessons. A private lesson is a one hour time block (55-minutes teaching & 5 minute scheduling) with one-on-one instruction from a qualified dance professional. Students learn essential technique and lead/follow connection, along with dance patterns and vocabulary, from their private lesson teacher. Whether you learn as a single person or as a couple, you will discover the joy of success in your partner dancing. More information on private lessons may be found here.
