WE WILL HELP YOU FIND YOUR LEFT AND YOUR RIGHT!
“I can’t dance – I have two left feet”….
Our introductory course to beginning dance is a great way to find your left and your right! We recommend it to all new students because it gives an individual or couple a chance to explore many different dances with different learning styles within 3 private lessons, 2 group classes, and 1 dance party. Our DVIDA certified staff will guide you through the basics and discuss your interests and goals with you. For most people, they finish the experience knowing what dances they enjoy and how they want to continue learning.
