Group Classes

West Coast Swing in June 2019

Our weekly group classes in Connecticut are designed to get you dancing and meeting new people. These classes are taught on a monthly cycle. The Beginner series starts with the foundation steps and concepts on the first week and gets more challenging during the month. The Intermediate/Advanced series introduces more complicated patterns, footwork, and musicality. The end of each night's lessons are capped with a fun dance party.

See the calendar to start your journey.

Private Lessons

Private lessons give you the opportunity to learn at your own pace. Focus on technique, spins and turns, and moves to become a more proficient dancer. These lessons can focus on West Coast Swing, Hustle, Salsa, or Night Club Two-Step. You'll be amazed with how quickly you'll find solutions to your dance challenges. 

See the calendar for scheduling opportunities.
