Modern Jive

Modern Jive is an easy partner dance with no fancy footwork. It’s danced to a wide variety of music, including top 20 hits.

Each class teaches 3 beginner moves that can be mixed and matched together. We like to think that there are no mistakes in Modern Jive, only variations!

Ballroom

Ballroom dance encompasses a range of dances including the waltz, quickstep, foxtrot, cha-cha-cha and rhumba. Think of “dancing with the stars” but without the fancy clothes and pressure to perform.

Our classes will introduce you to this fabulous style of dance which is sure to impress friends and family.

Tango

Tango dance is one the most famous partner dances that emphasizes the vibrant and playful style of movement, rich expressions, and passion between dancers.

We understand that new dancers may not be comfortable with the close hold often seen in tango dance. In our classes you will be able to dance as close to you as you feel comfortable.
