Our Group classes introduce steps and technical points, and give you a chance to practice with other dancers.
- New group classes start every 4 weeks
- One set includes four, 55 minute sessions of instruction
Our intro classes welcome people who have NEVER danced before to the world of ballroom dancing. Featuring 6 of the most popular ballroom and latin dances, these classes introduce you to the basic steps you need to 'survive' on the dance-floor. You won't be a pro after these classes, but you will have a sense for the "feel" of each dance, and you will have enough material to be able to last, ahem, dance, through an entire song!
We have 2 sets of classes:
FRC - Foxtrot, Rumba, Cha Cha
TWS - Tango, Waltz, Swing
Each class has 4 hours of instruction taught over four consecutive weeks. Tuesday and Friday intro classes are 6:30 - 7:25pm. Check out our schedule link at the top of the page for more detailed information
Classes begin every four weeks so if you missed the current set, you can still get started soon. Or if you're getting ready for a cruise or a special occasion, or just plain can't wait to get started, we'll be happy to take you on with our private lesson program.
What happens next? Level 1! Or, if you'd like to build a really solid foundation, you can repeat the class. Like any learned skill, good dancing comes through repetition. The more you see, hear and do dancing, the better dancer you will become!
Once you've been through the introductory program, you're ready to begin Level 1 classes. At this point we introduce a few more dances like the salsa, samba and merengue, as well as a lot more variety for the dances you already know!
Level 1 classes focus on a single dance over four weeks of instruction. This allows you to review and make your introductory steps automatic as well as learn new patterns. We also start to work on more advanced ideas like leading and following, floor-craft (how to get around a crowded dance floor) and sometimes even a bit of styling.
Level 2 and Beyond...
At this point you have an interesting variety of patterns to dance, and while you're not quite ready to lead of follow someone brand new, you are ready to learn a few more dances that require a higher skill level.
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!
