GROUP CLASSES AT THE ANNEX

Current Session - April 30th - May 30th

 

*Please note that social dances are on hold until our next door neighbor,

 

The Copper Plank is officially open!*

Read on about our group classes and find a class on the schedule below.

~ Come on your own or dance with your partner.


~ Join our group dance classes on the first week of any

progressive four or five week session if possible.

~ Currently, we offer 3 levels of classes:

 

Level 1

 

These classes are open to everyone and are designed for students with

little or no dance experience. They cover the basics of up to five dance styles with some simple combinations to be able to get on the floor quickly and have fun!
 

After three months of Level 1, students may qualify for Level 2.

 

This qualification can also be done in a private lesson.

 

Feel free to take Level 1 as long as you want for the most practice!

 

Level 2

 

These classes require instructor approval. They are designed to continue your dance education with more complex combinations and an introduction to technique and other characteristics of a good social dancer! With prior dance experience, contact the class instructor to see which level is the best fit for you.

After four to 6 months of Level 2, students may qualify for Level 3.

 

This qualification can also be done in a private lesson.

Level 3

 

These classes are for our most advanced students and require instructor approval! 

Some of our classes rotate through different styles monthly and others focus on the same dance style(s) with a Fusion twist.

All of our classes are 45 - 50 minutes.

Our definition of Fusion partner dancing:

~ Dancing two or more dances together in the same song.

 

~ Dancing a style to music not traditionally associated with it, such as Bachata to Country music or Tango to Rock.

 

~ Borrowing patterns and techniques from one style of dance to enjoy in another.

 We think it's more fun to learn everything so you can dance to anything!
