Group Lessons & Dances

Grow your dancing skills with our Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 group classes every week. Take your dancing from beginner to wow!

If you enjoy the social aspects of learning to dance, then learning in a group is a great choice.  No partner is required to attend our group classes. Switching partners is not required for those attending as couples, but we do encourage beginners to give it a try. We offer 3 levels of ballroom dance classes, so you can grow your skills and find your stride on any dance floor. 

Note: Level 2 and Level 3 classes are not intro or beginner classes. You should have a working knowledge of the basics to attend these classes.

Looking for your lessons to be more catered to your learning style and schedule? Check out private dance lessons with personal dance trainers.

Group Class & Dance Party Tips:

 

Q: What should I wear to class?

A: Wear comfortable clothing. Most students come to class in business casual or casual wear. For Dance parties casual for weekly practice dance party, see specific attire suggestions for theme or special dance party events.

Q: What kind of shoes should I wear?

A: Wear comfortable shoes that stay on your feet and have a little slip and a little grip. If you can do the twist on your kitchen floor and your shoes don't grip to the floor, your shoes will work for our Beginner classes. We suggest students wear dance shoes for Level 2 and Level 3 courses.

Q: Do I have to change partners?

A: Though changing partners is optional. We encourage everyone to change partners as we have found a partner change for a few minutes can increase body awareness, helping you learn faster and become a better partner.

Q: How early should I arrive?

A: When coming to a class for the first time, try to arrive 10 minutes early for check-in at the front desk. Arrive to class on time, it can be extremely disruptive to the flow of the class if you arrive late. The teacher will not be able to take time to catch you up if you arrive late.

Q: How can I pay?

We accept cash, check, Venmo QR, and credit cards for payment.
