Group classes are a great way to learn to dance, stay active and meet new friends, all at the same time! All of our evening group classes are progressive and run in month long series, so it is best to pre-register and start at the beginning of the month. We do allow drop-ins as well, which may work well for those who already have experience in a certain dance style and want to drop-in sharpen their skills. Class are 50 minutes long, followed by a few minutes of practice time.
Prices: When you pay for a full month long series, Newcomer classes are $8 per class and BeyondBeg/Int/Adv are $10 per class. You must pay for the full month of classes at the first class of the month to receive this discounted price. It is $2 more per class if you are “dropping-in” and paying for each class individually. Payment is taken at the door and we accept check or cash in the studio for payment. More questions? Check out our FAQ’s page!
Go to our “registration page” to see the full list of our class choices and sign up to hold your spot! Payment is not needed for pre-registration; it will be taken at the door at your first lesson.
We run monthly social dances that provide the perfect opportunity to enjoy using what you have learned in classes while spending time with your dance friends! Check out our “social dance parties” page for all the details.
