About Group Classes

Our group classes are each held one evening per week, usually for a 4- or 5-week session, on Mondays through Thursdays most weeks of the year, unless otherwise indicated. Ongoing weekday drop-in classes are each held once per week throughout most of the year. Weekend drop-in lessons are offered several times a month in conjunction with our weekend dance parties.

Group classes offer the opportunity to learn a dance with others, often creating bonds of friendship which last through a lifetime of dancing. When you make friends on the dance floor you always know you have a ready group of partners to dance with. And group classes allow you to practice what you are learning with multiple dance partners, allowing you to better understand the action-result process by working with a variety of people.

Best of all, group classes help you feel supported and encouraged by others who are struggling just like you to learn the move or the styling. It lets you know you're not alone, and gives you the space for lots of laughs along the way.

We offer an abundance of group classes, in 4 or 5 week sessions on weekday evenings throughout the year. Classes are designated by levels to help you choose the ones that best fit your current skillset
