Excuse No. 1: I have two left feet

Despite what you may think, no dancer is born to dance. Learning how to dance is a trial and error period, and every good dancer you know has had their days where nothing went right. That’s why they are lessons; you learn how to become the dancer you have always wanted, step by step.

Excuse No. 2: I don’t have a partner

You don’t need a partner to ballroom dance. This is where our talented dance instructors come in, they’re able to serve as your partner if need be. You’ll have your dance lesson with them serving as both your partner and your teacher at the same time. And if you’d like, you can even compete in dance competitions with them.

Excuse No. 3: I’m not in shape

You don’t have to worry about being in shape when you come in for one of our dance programs. No matter your athletic ability, we will take it at your pace and slowly but surely you will be able to build up your stamina and dance the night away.


Excuse No. 4: I’m embarrassed about feel exposed and, well, embarrassed!
