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! 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.

Levels: Newcomer 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 new more complex ways.

Prices:
Group class progressive series pricing: $12 drop -in or $10 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).
Workshop Series: $20 per workshop or $60 for all 4 if you pay at the first class.
