Ballroom Dance

The perfect way to sample six Ballroom Dances in a short amount of time. We introduce Waltz, Cha Cha, Rumba, Tango, Fox Trot and Swing; each class will focus on one dance. Learn beginner’s steps, fundamentals of lead and follow skills, dance etiquette and music selection. Class is held at C.I. Beaver Hall.
Individual $55 / $50 Resident Discounted Fee,   Couple $90 / $80 Resident Discounted Fee

(We will teach one more session in 2023, starting in September)

Swing I and II

Swing I focuses on beginner’s East Coast Swing and introduces strong lead and follow techniques that are useful in any dance style. For students who have never danced before, or want to brush up on the basics. This is a 3–week session, with Swing II following the next three weeks (take all 6 weeks for a complete block of Swing – and a slightly discounted price.)

Swing II is 3-week class, and a continuation of Swing 1, with a bonus introduction to the 8-count Lindy Hop. This is a great class for dancers who want to grasp the concepts of Lindy Hop and/or improve their lead and follow skills.

(We will teach one more session in 2023, starting in September)

Swing III

Swing III focuses on advanced swing-dancing techniques and may include East Coast (single and triple), Lindy Hope or Charleston. Each session of Swing III is customized to the students enrolled in the class, their dance abilities, and requests. Swing III is for students who have completed Swing I and II or are experienced swing-dancers.

(We will teach one more session in 2023, starting in September)
