Weekly Beginner Dance Classes

The best way to learn to dance is weekly progressive lessons in which you start with the fundamentals and progress to more challenging material over the duration of the class session. Class sessions can run for 4 weeks, 5 weeks, 6 weeks or longer, depending on the structure of the course and the instructor’s method of teaching.

Our current session of classes includes beginner classes in Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba, Zouk, Tango, and more. Check the Lesson Schedule page to get started.

If you’ve missed the first class or two, no problem, you may still be able to join a course as late registrations are accepted at many beginner classes that may have already started.

If you’re not sure whether weekly dance classes are for you, many instructors will allow new students to do a “drop-in” where you try a beginner class to see if you like it. Drop-in rates are usually about $15-$20 for a one-hour class, but may vary depending on the instructor’s rate and/or duration of the class.
