Dance Lessons

Want to dance like the couples on Dancing with the Stars? Both social & competitive private lessons are offered for all ages. No experience is necessary and no partner required! Contact us to get started today. Our unique teaching method includes regularly scheduled private instruction as well as group lessons and practice lessons.

Private Instructions

Private instruction with one or more key teachers gives you the specialized and personalized attention necessary to look and feel great on the dance floor, while developing the ability to lead or follow any partner.

Group Lessons

Group lessons are also a necessary part of instruction because this is where patterns, technique and style are learned. Equally important, group lessons provide you with the opportunity to meet other students with similar dancing goals.

Practice Lessons

Practice lessons complete the lesson information taught in our private and group lessons. Learning is one thing, but making the material work in a live setting while dancing with different people is quite another. This is what our practice lessons do.
