Evening Group Partner Dance Classes

Group classes are a great way to learn to dance, stay active and meet new friends, all at the same time! For our progressive series, please note it is best to start at the beginning of the month as the class material builds throughout the month. Registering online saves your spot in the class, as we do cap our classes to ensure quality instruction for our students. We allow drop-ins as well if the class is not full. If you are wanting to drop-in to a progressive series class, be sure you already have enough experience in a that dance style that you will feel comfortable jumping into the middle of the series. Series classes are 50 minutes long, followed by a few minutes of practice time. Workshops are 1.5 hours in length. We rotate in our group classes, so you do not need to come with a partner.

Levels: Newcomer & Beginning classes are designed for those who are either brand new to dancing or those who are wanting to work on their technique in their basics. Beyond Beginning classes are designed for those who already have a solid foundation in the dance style and are looking to increase their skill and repertoire. Intermediate & Advanced classes are designed for those who have mastered both the basics and beyond basic concepts and desire to be challenged in more complex ways.

Prices:
Progressive Series: $15 drop -in or $12 per class if you pay for the full month at the first class.
Single Day Workshops: $20 pre-registered / $25 at the door (space permitting).
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!
