Every style of dance begins with a solid foundation and knowledge of basic skills.

Our instructors will teach you about proper foot position, rhythm and timing and the acts of leading and following during certain dances. In learning the rudimentary moves of ballroom dancing, you will establish the groundwork for learning and practicing more of the popular dances we teach, including the cha-cha, salsa, tango, waltz and more.
Enjoying the Benefits
As a beginner, you will enjoy the many benefits that come with ballroom dancing. Just like with any physical activity, ballroom dancing gets your heart pumping and your body moving. Dancing promotes healthy weight loss by burning fat, just as running or bicycling would. Plus, dancing helps to increase flexibility, muscle strength and endurance in our students, no matter their age. In addition to promoting healthy physical activity, dancing also helps to develop your sense of confidence through self-expression and creativity. It helps to relieve built-up stress in a fun, social environment where you can make new friends and learn more about yourself, too. And by dancing as a beginner, you might begin to develop a newfound love of the activity that will serve you for the rest of your life.
