Social Dance Parties


Practice parties are opportunities to “test drive” your new steps, and develop better “muscle memory”.

Although you may not learn new patterns at the dance parties, they are truly invaluable in your dancing education.

At a Dance Party the lights get turned down, the music gets turned up, and soft drinks and light appetizers are served.

Instructors are available to answer questions if you can’t remember how a pattern starts, or which dance you should do to each song.

Visually seeing what a dance can look like when it is mastered, practicing moving around the floor without crashing into others, training your ear to quickly decide what dance goes to each piece of music-these are all valuable learning tools you can only find at a dance party.



Dance Parties are open to the public, and all ages and levels are invited to attend. There is usually a group class right before to review old patterns or learn new ones.  A variety of music will be played from oldies to current hits you may hear on the radio, and the dances range from Basic Ballroom Dances, such as Waltz, Tango and Foxtrot to Cha Cha, Rumba, Salsa, Argentine Tango, Swing Dance and International Styles.
