GROUP CLASSES

Group Classes

We are happy to offer a variety of group classes for students of all ages in our Recreational Program. The Recreational Program offers a number of group classes for dancers of all levels and helps dancers learn choreography and technique to better their dancing. The program is created for people who are primarily interested in learning how to dance socially. Each level teaches different dances, and more advanced level classes teach more difficult choreography and technique.

Beginner Classes (Standard & Latin)

Our Beginner classes are recommended for those who have little to no experience in ballroom dancing. In these classes, you’ll learn the very fundamentals of five dances, two International Standard dances and three International Latin dances. The instructor will teach you simple choreography to get you on your feet and moving to music. We offer three time slots for Beginner classes so that you can fit the class into your busy schedule.

Bronze Classes (Standard & Latin)

Bronze classes are just one step up from Beginner classes and we recommend them for anyone who’s taken some ballroom dance classes before, or has had a little bit of experience in ballroom dance. In these classes, we’ll expand upon the dances that you learned in Beginner and add a few more. In total, you will learn eight dances in our Bronze class, four International Standard and four International Latin: Waltz, Tango, Slow Foxtrot, Quickstep, and Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, and Jive. These classes will offer slightly more complicated choreography and an introduction to technical elements of all existing choreography so that you can look sharper on the dance floor.

The Bronze II class is a continuation of the Bronze I class. We recommend students sign up for the Bronze II class before moving onto the Silver level if they feel that they need more time to learn. We encourage everyone to learn at their own pace; Bronze classes introduce many fundamentals of ballroom dance that ought to be practiced regularly until mastery is achieved.

Silver Classes

Once you’ve completed Bronze classes, it’s time to move on to the Silver classes. The dances remain the same, with one exception. In the Silver level, we introduce the fifth and final International Standard dance, the Viennese Waltz.
