Anniversary Showcase

February marks the birthday of our business! Each year we celebrate by putting together a themed dance showcase which features our in-studio instructors and their students! This is an opportunity for our students to show off their hard work and talents. Sprinkled throughout the evening are guest instructors and local professionals who contribute to a fun-filled evening of social dancing, entertainment, good food and great people! Join us!

Each August, we hold our annual cancer charity competition. This event features a fun dance competition where competitors compete in dances such as:

  • Same Sex Rumba

  • Straight-Leg Samba
  • Interpretive Paso Doble
  • Three-person Salsa
  • 70s Hustle
