Group Lessons & Dances

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. We offer 3 levels of ballroom dance classes, so you can grow your skills and find your stride on any dance floor. 

Note: Our Level 3 classes are intermediate level. You should already have a good working knowledge of the basics to attend this class.

Group Class Tips
  • Wear comfortable clothing. Something you can move easily in. Most students come to class in business casual or casual wear.

 

  • 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. No boots or stiletto heels please. We suggest students wear dance shoes for all Intermediate Level Courses.

 

  • Arrive to class on time. It is extremely disruptive to the flow of the class if you arrive late. Note instructor will not be able to take time to catch up latecomers to class. If it is your first time in class plan on arriving 5 - 10 minutes early to check in.

 

  • Though changing partners is optional. We encourage everyone to change parnters as we have found a partner change for a few minutes can increase body awareness, making you an even better partner when you return back to your original partner.

 

  • We accept cash, check, and credit cards for payment.
