Drop-in students are welcome when classes are not full, but classes regularly fill with registered students, so we recommend signing up in advance to avoid disappointment.

Build dance floor confidence while increasing balance, coordination, and space awareness. Students learn everything from salsa to disco, jitterbug to hip-hop, setting them up with moves for the dance floor at weddings and other social gatherings. Students even learn to throw their own dance party! Each 90-minute class culminates in a dance performance with participants trying out what they’ve learned.
