BEGINNER CLASSES

Our beginner classes aim to show you that ballroom dance is a great way to integrate a little bit more music and movement into your life. Dancing can be a great way to spend an evening; it’s also useful for hitting the dance floors at a social event.

Learn to Dance

At the Crystal Ballroom, we offer a number of choices for beginners who are looking to learn to dance. All of our instructors are professional dancers who are successful competitors and performers. They understand that dance classes ought to feel relaxed, light, and comfortable.

Our various beginner programs are the perfect introduction for anyone looking to learn to ballroom dance. Dance classes will teach five dances: the Waltz, Tango, Cha-Cha, Rumba, and Jive. Basic steps and fundamental technique will be both covered in the classes. No partner is required.

The beginner program is suitable for true beginners or those who simply have taken a break from dancing and want a refresher before moving on to the next level. We recommend all students take 8 beginner classes before moving on to bronze classes.

No partner? No problem. Partners will be rotated throughout the class. If you’ve come with a partner already, partner rotations are not mandatory. The instructor will also demonstrate and dance with those without partners!
