Social Ballroom Dancing

Absolute Beginners: The Classic Dances

Monday   7:15 to 8:15 p.m.

This is the perfect class to start, just for beginners. We focus on the 8 most important dances because these are the dances that will give you a solid foundation in partner dancing. A nice slow pace to enjoy dancing while you are learning and exercising in a friendly atmosphere.

You don't need a partner, you don't need to register and you can start anytime, although the new dances are introduced on the first week of the month, therefore the first class of the month is the easiest. No dress code, wear comfortable shoes with a sole as thin as possible (sneakers or thick rubber sole are difficult to dance with).


Monday 8:15 to 9:15 p.m.

When you want to learn more dances and more steps

We recommend that you take the combination of the Basics and the Absolute Beginner classes for at least a year, to feel very proficient in the way you lead and follow the basics, before learning more steps.


Thursday   7:00 to 8:00 p.m. 

and Sunday   5:00 to 6:00 p.m.

When you feel ready to learn more variations at a much faster pace.

Full Bronze Level

Thursday   8:00 to 9:00 p.m. 

and Sunday   6:00 to 7:00 p.m. 

Now that you are proficient with the basic steps, you can use them in more complicated variations and combinations.
