We offer classes for all abilities from beginner on up to the professional level, so don’t take yourself too seriously! You’ll have fun while learning new steps and letting loose to the music. You can also attend one of our frequent studio dance parties for the opportunity to practice and socialize even more.
There’s a variety of packages to get you started, from private or group ballroom dance lessons to a friends and family session (with up to four participants) to get ready for your wedding or other special occasion. For another fun option, consider our Dancers Boot Camp dance/exercise class.
Winter can be a cold and gray season. When you take adult dance lessons, you’ll have something fun to keep you occupied. Contact us to find out how you can chase those winter blues away while also learning something new.
