Classes & Programs

Current Class Schedule

Program Overview

Our dance program includes private lessons, group classes, and practice parties . We also prepare a lot of couples for their wedding dance.
For most students, group classes are the best way to get started in ballroom dancing. But as you get better, a combination of all our activities is the most efficient way to learn.

We teach any and all partner dances including rumba, cha cha, swing, west coast swing, salsa, samba, merengue, waltz, tango, foxtrot, quickstep and Viennese waltz and more. Our dances page has a bit more information about this.

The main focus of our studio is on social dancing, and we place a premium on good lead and follow skills and having a great time.

Wedding Program

Congratulations!
So your big day is coming up... You`re either totally excited about gliding around the dance floor with your one-and-only...

...or you`re dreading the thought of your two left feet in too-new shoes having to keep time to music with two more left feet while everyone in the room is staring directly at you!

Just kidding! Either way everyone`s going to think you`re great - but again, either way, we can help.

We`ve put together hundreds of wedding dances. Whether you just need help connecting together in something simple and classy or you want to perform a choreographed, show-stopping routine that is the highlight of the reception, we can help to make that moment as beautiful and stress-free as it should be.

Rates

Getting started is easy. The first step is to schedule you Complimentary Private Lesson (worth $90 & must be 6 weeks before your date) with one of our trained instructors. During that lesson, your instructor will determine your current ability level and recommend an appropriate course for you to continue.

We also offer wedding couples a special package of 5 private lessons , including a month group class and dance parties free for $350!

To set up your first lesson, contact us today.

Private Lessons

Private lessons offer detailed, personalized instruction that give you the "feel" for a dance and focus on your specific needs.

Private lessons are a great way to improve your dancing quickly, because the instruction is based on your particular needs, desires and abilities. For those who really want to develop advanced movement and style in their dancing, regular private lessons are basically a necessity, keeping you on track and stopping bad habits before they start.

Private lessons are especially useful when:

you`re preparing for a special occasion; a wedding dance, a cruise, a special night out etc.
you`ve been having problems leading/following a particular pattern
you`re just not getting the group class material and feel you`re holding up the class.
you`re preparing for a dance competition and need routines or technique tips.
you`d like to perform at one of our student showcases
you`re in a hurry to learn
you can`t make our regularly scheduled group classes.
you want the in depth instruction and personal attention that is only possible in a private lesson

Private lessons may be purchased one at a time or in discounted package, which include free group classes and dance parties.

Take advantage of our new student introductory offer to see the difference private lessons can make.

Hours

Each private lesson is 50 minutes long and is booked by appointment

Rates

1 lesson for $90
3 lessons for $240
10 lessons for $750

Group Classes

Our Beginner Ballroom Class is offered Thursday evenings. You meet once a week for 4 or more consecutive weeks. Our Beginner class introduces you to six major dances over 8 weeks( Waltz, Rumba, Swing, Cha cha and Tango, Foxtrot). Instruction covers a couple of patterns in each; the basics of how to lead and follow a partner; as well as how to listen and move with timing and rhythm.

You also get free weekly practice sessions, a free make up session (if needed) and new students even receive a free 1/2 hour private lesson an monthly ball. You’ll wish everyone treated you this well!

Ballroom dancing is a fun and exciting way to get exercise and meet new people. Dancers of all ages enjoy Ballroom. It`s easy to learn and tons of fun!

Beyond Beginners
Our classes are designed to develop timing, technique and the styling will make you look and feel comfortable on the dance floor and strengthen your lead and following regardless of your partner, the music being played or the type of dance floor. This level of dancers have all the confidence anyone would need on the floor because they have reached the "fun point" in dancing. Dancing techniques at this level will be yours to keep as you`ll never forget the elements of each dance.

Becoming a better dancer is an ongoing journey; and a fun one at that. As our students develop we add more and more levels and more and more dances for more and more good times!

Performance Classes

Does the heart of performer beat within you? Here is how you can satisfy the Fred Astaire or Ginger Rogers within…

Solo Routines
For solo routines students prepare ahead of time during private lessons. Choosing costumes and music, and practicing a lot are all part of the process.
Solo routines are an ideal way to immerse yourself in a single dance and take your dancing to a whole new level. The attention to detail and focus required is challenging but also very rewarding.

Formation Teams
A Formation is another fun and exciting way to perform and is as big a challenge as a solo routine. Formation participants learn a choreographed routine, share good times and perform as a group. Rehearsals are run like a group class and there is a cost to participate. You also need to provide your own costume and commit to most of the practices.

There are many factors that influence who participates in a given routine including time availability, interest, dance level etc. We try to give everyone a turn at participating so don’t be surprised if you’re asked!

There are many opportunities for you to perform throughout the year. If you would like to get involved in either a routine or formation or have some other idea that you’ve always dreamt about please let us know.

Specialty Workshops

To complement our normal syllabus classes, we offer regular Workshops that focus on specific dances, skills and ideas. These specialty classes are a great way to get familiar with a new dance or develop quality and style in your dancing because the details are layered on top of foundation steps you will already know. Usually the topics covered will be general and applicable to many different dances.
Some of our Workshop classes include:
• Cuban Motion: where introduce the hip and knee action that adds substance and style to your Latin dances)
• Rise and Fall: a movement used in most ballroom dances that give them a smooth, effortless quality.
• Introduction to Salsa, Bachata, Paso Doble, Bolero, Hustle, Texas, Two Step, International Dance Technique, etc.

There are different prerequisites for each workshop. However, because they focus on skills or components - not on steps - they may open to students of different levels. Check the details for each one and let us know if you have any questions.
Finally, if you have a suggestion for workshop you would like us to offer, please let us know!

Rates
