Bi-Weekly dance parties
It’s party time! We invite all of our students to the studio for a fun evening of dancing! Meet new people, socialize, and enjoy great music and dancing! The lights are dimmed and the music is cranked up and there’s always someone to dance with. This is a great way for you to practice your new moves and use your skills. If you attend the studio parties you will have no difficulty using your dancing outside the studio!


Wear clothing that you feel comfortable in and have the ability to move around easily. We recommend bringing a change of shoes that will move well on the wood dance floor. Avoid athletic shoes like sneakers, as they will grip to the dance floor instead of glide across it. If you are looking to invest in a high quality pair of dance shoes, check out our collection.
