Please be patient as we build this portion of the web site. Thank You!


Our goal at Absolute Ballroom is to assist you in every way possible as you learn to dance. Ballroom 101 should fill in some information our students suggested would be helpful to new dancers.

In the drop down menu you will find…….

  • Ballroom Ettiquette; includes asking someone to dance, ending a dance and moving around a crowded floor.
