Social Dance



Dance & express yourself – together! Social and partner dances are a great way to move together, meet new people and socialize while learning to dance for all occasions. Whether you're preparing for your first dance as a married couple or just want to dance with ease.

No partners are required, singles and couples are welcome and we'll be sure to have a partner available in your class. Social dances are a community experience, get moving together!
