Have you thought of taking adult dance lessons?

By following the flock and joining a gym, you’d probably be faced with annoying crowds and long lines of people waiting to use the machines and other fitness equipment. On the other hand, you can take ballroom dance lessons privately or in a small group, providing you with one-on-one attention.

If you want to lose weight, build strength, or boost your self-confidence, ballroom dancing is ideal. The benefits of dancing are physical, mental, emotional, and social. Dancing is a great cardio workout that also promotes flexibility and coordination. From an intellectual standpoint, learning new dance steps and routines keeps your mind engaged. Furthermore, there’s nothing more social than dancing, where you’ll meet new people and learn how to work with a partner.

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.
