We offer a wide variety of ballroom dance lessons. We have expertise in both American Style "smooth" (Waltz, Foxtrot, tango, Viennese waltz) and "rhythm" (Rumba, Cha Cha, Swing, Bolero, Mambo) and International Style standard (Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Quickstep) and Latin (Rumba, Cha Cha, Samba, Jive, even Paso Doble). We also teach Nightclub two-step.
In the international style, dancers are in the closed position, pressed close together – this is classic ballroom dance, taught all over the world. The American style, however, allows dancers to open up – they can separate and use as much of the floor as they like – and is more theatrical.
Yes, we offer private dance lessons for individuals or small groups.
Our pricing varies depending on the type of lesson and the length of the class. Please contact us for more information.
A partner is not required. We try to change partners throughout our classes to assure those who do not have a partner get to dance.
That's fine too. Please let your instructor know and we will gladly accommodate your request.
