Group Lesson Series

Tuesday Lesson Series

Due to recent events we have made the tough decision to continue to postpone our “in person” Tuesday night group classes. This decision did not come easily but feel it is in our best interest of our dancers and our community. I know we will see each other on the dance floor again soon when it is safe to do so. While we impatiently wait for that to happen we have the following online services available:

Ladies ONLY online dance class

Every Tuesday in December at 7pm (12/1, 12/8, 12/15, 12/22)
Can’t make it to class? No problem, as the classes are recorded and sent to you via email for you to review at your convenience.
Some dance experience is required as this is an Intermediate course teaching a cha cha fusion choreography over the 4 weeks.
Cost: $60

To register please email me at

Congratulations on Your Up and Coming Wedding!

We love working with wedding couples to shake off their first dance jitters. Unfortunately, this year has taken a turn and due to recent events we have made the tough decision to postpone our “in person” wedding lesson packages. If learning to dance on an online platform interests you please contact me via e-mail or phone to discuss in further detail.
