Combining the best of private instruction

and group class learning

In a semi-private lesson, you experience the ideal balance between private instruction and group class learning.  Like a group class, a semi-private lesson is taught as part of a course with a specific agenda of dances, variations and outcomes.  Like a private lesson, each couple receives individual attention and recommendations for learning better.  

Team up with another couple or two and get with us to form your very own personalized semi-private course.  semi-private sessions are available for 2 or 3 couples.

==============================

ABOUT OUR GROUP CLASSES

  

Our group class program is a structured curriculum, designed to take you from your first steps on up. Our standard courses are 6 weeks and have designated learning levels such as beginner 1, beginner 2, beyond beginner, etc. Each learning level includes multiple courses, so students should expect to move through the various levels at a gradual pace. We also have specialty courses that range from 2 to 4 weeks.  top

Always remember that unless otherwise noted, partners are rotated throughout the class. Pre-registration is required for all of the above-mentioned courses.

 

WORKSHOPS are offered as supplements to the standard curriculum. Workshops are most often an "open levels" class; however, certain ones are designated for advanced learners.  Some of these require pre-registration; however, most allow at-the-door admission. Nearly all workshops offer convenient on-line registration.

 top

TECHNIQUE CLASSES are individual sessions focused on improving form and execution. They may include styling, body development, movement mechanics, or theory. These classes allow at-the-door admission.

 

Our BYOP classes are special sessions which require you "bring your own partner". It is in these group classes only that we do not rotate partners. Most of these classes require pre-registration, but some allow you to register at the door or get a discount for pre-registering.

Policies for group classes

 

Please review all information before registering

 

  

Group classes are 45 minutes in length unless otherwise noted.

• Pre-registration is required for most courses. Tuition must accompany registration.

• Tuition rates are per person unless otherwise specified.

• Class size is limited; early registration is recommended.

• There are no make up classes nor credits for absences.

• No video taping is allowed in any group classes or workshops.

• Classes are not open for observation.

  

• Dress code restrictions: no sleeveless shirts for men. No halter tops or backless dresses for ladies.

 

• It is our standard practice to rotate partners in all group classes. This not only makes learning more fun, but it helps to develop lead & follow skills. Private instruction, semi-private and/or byop classes are available for students who do not wish to rotate partners.

  

• While it is not practical to guarantee an even number of men and ladies for every class, pre-registration allows us to keep a comparable male/female ratio. Obviously, we have no control over absences, but our partner rotation system ensures fairness to everyone. Also, we have members of our support staff available for every class to assist us as needed.

 

 • There is a minimum number of students required in order for each class to make. Late registration may be available, but we strongly encourage getting registered early. Because class size is limited, classes often fill; and registration is always on a first come, first served basis.

 

Cancellation policy 

 To cancel a course/workshop/event for which you have registered, you must notify us by phone or in person 7 days in advance of the course start date in order to receive a refund or credit.  

 

 

 

Our studio proudly abides by the “play nice” policy.  

Patience and courtesy with your partners must be  

practiced at all times.

For your general information, know that our group classes meet as scheduled except in the case of extreme weather conditions. Should weather advisory ever direct that people stay inside their homes and not travel except in emergency situations, classes will be cancelled. Notice of cancellation will always be posted on this site at the top of this current schedule page and will be added to our voice mail. Students will be offered a credit for the missed class should they choose to accept it.
