We make learning fun, easy, and informative. You learn useful dances that you can use in your everyday life. We also teach wedding couples so they can get ready for that important day, without the added stresses that the wedding day can bring. Our studio is like the local dance hall where you look forward to coming to dance and see friends. You will look forward to your lessons so you can get away from those everyday stresses that life can bring. At the same time, you are getting a workout that is fun and easy. We teach any dance that you can do with a partner. If you don't have a partner, no problem we will have you take your lessons with one of our highly qualified instructors. They will teach you all the popular dances that you are looking to learn, plus maybe a few new dances. We also intermix our specialized group classes with your private lessons to help your lead and/or following skills. The combination of Private Lessons and Group Classes will help you gain more confidence and get you out on the dance floor sooner than later. We also provide a practice/party session at the end of the week, so you have the chance to practice all your moves in a controlled party atmosphere before you take it in the night clubs.
