Group Classes for Ballroom Dancing
Group classes for ballroom dancing are a great way to get started or to improve your dancing skills. Whatever your dancing goals are, we can help you achieve them. Learn the correct technique to become a better dancer. If you would like an inexpensive way to learn Swing Dancing, or Foxtrot, one of the most popular social dances, join one of our group dancing classes. If you are preparing for your wedding, you may want to start with some group dancing classes.
We offer a full range of group ballroom and latin dance classes for beginner through advanced dancers. If you have never danced before, the Beginner Ballroom Dance Classes will teach you some of the basic steps in the most popular ballroom and latin dances. You will gain confidence and feel comfortable on the dance floor at social occasions. Perhaps there is a dance you have always wanted to learn like the upbeat Swing, the smooth Foxtrot or the romantic Waltz. Don't put it off any longer. Now is the time to take the first steps!
Group Ballroom Dance Classes
The group ballroom dance classes run in six week sessions (see Group Ballroom Dance Lessons Calendar) and cost $60 per person for a six week session. Each class meets once a week for six weeks. After a six week session ends, a different set of dances will be taught, so if you don't see the dance you would like to learn, it may be offered in the next session. The ballroom dance classes are cumulative so each week builds on the material taught in the previous week(s). Some ballroom dance classes teach three weeks of one dance and then three weeks of a second dance as part of the same six-week class. Occasionally there will be a two hour ballroom dance workshop or specialty class offered. You may take a class as a drop in, but it is recommended that you try to come to all ballroom dance classes rather than dropping in sporadically. New steps and combinations of figures are taught, and good technique and styling are always stressed. Ready to get started? We make it easy for you to sign up online.
Levels of Instruction
The group classes are divided into levels. Each dance has a syllabus or selection of steps that is taught in each level. Here is what the various levels are called and what they mean:
- BEGINNER Level: No dance experience needed
- ADVANCED BEGINNER Level: No dance experience needed but the class will move at a faster pace than a Beginner Class.
- INTERMEDIATE Level: Some dance experience recommended. Completion of a Bronze/Beginner Class suggested.
- ADVANCED Level: Class will move at a faster pace covering more difficult figures and concepts. Beginner/Intermediate level experience recommended.
