Ballroom Dance Classes
About our lessons: both private lessons and group classes are offered at our studio. We usually recommend a combination of both private and group lessons to become a well-rounded social dancer, whereas we would recommend more private lessons in a dance program designed to prepare you for the competitive arena. You may choose to bring your partner for date night (no partner rotation required) or you can come as a single to a class where we do rotate. Of course if you wish to take private lessons and do not have partner, your instructor will be happy to partner you!
