The perfect learning triad of group and private lessons is completed by attending dance parties! That saying, “Practice makes perfect!” is true, especially within a warm, hospitable environment where the total beginner to the advanced dancer is welcomed. Our themed balls are offered once a month, usually on the Fourth Friday, at the studio, with refreshments and, occasionally, a few performance numbers.
The staff, instructors and dance hosts circulate to invite guests to dance and to even show them a new step or two. A helpful and entertaining lesson is offered at the beginning of each dance. At some dances, the dance card system is used where pre-registered students get to dance with the teachers, dance hosts and staff on a pre-assigned rotation for the first part of the dance. Admission to our Fourth Friday Dances and themed balls is $20 per person.
