Ballroom Dance Classes 2012-2013

Our Ballroom Dance Program is lead by Emily Gomulak, Ballroom Dance Educator & Certified Adjudicator for Ballroom Dancesport. Sandra is an award winning ballroom dancer and her enthusiasm for dance is contagious. (Read Sandra's bio)


In our classes, students will be taught the history of each dance, where to use the dance and to what kind of music. Introduction to Ballroom Dance will give students the tools they'll need to progress as a social dancer: Steps, Lead/Follow and Timing. All while having fun and meeting new people! We also offer Private Ballroom Lessons for singles or a couple throughout the week; please call for available times.


These are great classes for students of all ages, including adults! Our classes are for the whole family: Father/Daughter; Mother/Son; & Individuals from 7yrs to adult!


Ballroom ABC's

In this introductory class, students will learn 4 of the most popular dances: the Waltz; Foxtrot; Swing; and Salsa. No partner is required to attend this class, only an open mind and interest in having fun while you learn. Students will learn how to ask a partner for a dance and how to accept a dance. How to lead and follow a dance requires each partner to do their part. This is why students will learn each step by themselves first before dancing with a partner.


This is a great class to get the whole family involved in dance! If you are a Mother/Son or Father/Daughter partnership, just enroll in the class appropriate to the age of your child.
