Group Lessons

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. For our weekly intermediate level group classes you should be familiar with the basics of a dance before attending. Beginner classes are perfect for those new to the dance style being taught.

 

Please note we offer group classes at 2 studio locations: Denver & Westminster. Location, dates, and class details can be found below. 

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 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 stick 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 minutes early.

 

  • 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. Though we kindly request cash for any of our $5 Classes - Thank You.
