What is your Level?

Beginner Level 1

These dance classes are for those with no or little previous dance experience who want to learn how to feel comfortable on the dance floor at weddings and socials. Group ballroom dance lessons are a great and inexpensive way to get started on improving your dancing skills!

Beginner Level 2

This class is a continuation of Level 1, and is open to anyone with a dance experience or who has completed Beginner Level 1. Please contact us to reserve your spot. Our one-on-one sessions give you a unique experience and the benefit of individual attention from an instructor. You choose the dance(s) you want to learn and we tailor the lessons to suit your needs and interests. Our teachers are well-versed in a wide variety of dances. Our private lessons are available most days and times. Please contact us for availability.

Intermediate

Two intermediate – Bronze and Silver level classes for International Ballroom (Standard) and International Latin are available. Ballroom (Standard) is on Monday at 8:00 PM, Latin is on Tuesday at 8:00 PM. These are Drop-in Classes.

For your convenience, we have available on our Links page, forms you can print off to keep track of the steps you learn, and to write down the choreography from your class. That way you have a reference to keep outside the class for practice!
