Convergence Dance Center offers private and group Swing Dance Lessons to help you find your own style on the dance floor. We make it a point to ascertain the style of swing, starting with your prefered music, that you will enjoy the most and teach you step by step until you no longer need us. Whether you choose to study at your own pace with a private lesson program, as a community in a group setting or a combination of the two, we will custom tailor a program just for you. Our staff teaches swing dance lessons at charity events including Lindy Hop St. Louis and has helped students compete and win at dance competitions across the country. We offer group lessons once per week and private lessons on most days. Swing styles we offer include: • East Coast Swing, Lindy Hop, West Coast Swing and Hustle.
We came here because we didn't know anything about any salsa classes or studios. In hindsight, we got so lucky we ended up here. What we thought would be just Salsa 1 ended up as Salsa 2A and Salsa 2B, then Bachata. We are hooked because these folks make dancing fun and easy for anyone. Super unfortunate but I ended up busting my knee and went to Carter, the Chiropractor, for therapy. So glad he was there because I'm back to my old self again.
Convergence is by far the best dance studio I've ever been to! I have been going for about three years now and I still learn so many new things each week! There are a wide array of classes, of which I have taken salsa and tango (both spectacular). Every instructor is helpful and extremely knowledgeable about every dance style taught there! The classes also range from beginner level to advanced, so there is something for everyone! I highly recommend this studio for anyone looking to learn new dances and also for more experienced dancers who want to learn even more!
I'm not sure I've ever actually expressed to you what a big deal it is for me to now feel comfortable at a social dance. I was almost pathologically shy as a teenager and not knowing how to dance, or how to ask for a dance without being gleefully rejected, was one of the ongoing themes of my youth. This past year it has been *profoundly* gratifying to put some of those old ghosts to rest, and have a hell of a good time in the process. Thanks. I mean it.
This class is for the dancer that understands the basics of West Coast Swing but still has some work to do to make it super smooth. The participants should be familiar with basic 6 count patterns as well as basic whip turns (both timing and basic turns). We will further explore dynamic connection and fluidity with turns and redirects. We will be changing partners in class and you do not need a partner to join. However, we do lead follow balance the class so either come with a partner or register early to increase your odds of joining the class! It is a super fun group of people and we would love to have you!!!
