West Coast Swing

West Coast Swing

So you love the top 40's and radio music and feeling the beat when it comes to dance, and that's okay! West coast swing is perfect for you. Not only can it be danced to almost ANY song but it leaves a lot of room for improvising. No one dance is ever the same so there's definitely room for you to have a solo or two (or five)...

East Coast Swing

East Coast Swing

So you're a bit old fashioned and like a natural rhythm to follow. East coast can vary but there's always a general pulse to ti that you can lean on if you ever get lost. And most of the music that fits well is either live or 50's music, and it's always a good time if the you like the song you're dancing to!

Latin

Latin

You like to dance with passion... and latin is perfect for that! There's plenty of room for pizzazz, flair and style (yes there is a difference... you will soon learn it) mixed in with the traditional moves. All the music has that festive beat you crave!

One Step/Nightclub

One Step/Nightclub

So maybe you don't have a particular liking to the popular dance styles that are out there now. No worries, nightclub two step and one step are perfect for that. Both styles have a simple basic which makes them easy to find music for and easy for you to teach your friends! While both are a bit new they're still just as fun.

Waltz

Waltz

Your dreams of gliding across the floor like Aurora in Sleeping Beauty can finally come true with this dance. Waltz is graceful, elegant and stylish. It's perfect if you want to move across the dance floor but at a more relaxing pace. The slow and classical-sounding songs that accompany it are sure to put you at ease while trying something new.

Country

Country

Do we really need to explain? If you like country music, and you like dancing, but want a partner to do it with, two step is the dance that combines both of those elements. So get started!

EVERYTHING!

EVERYTHING!

It's hard making decisions...and we get it. So you have "varied" interests and want to try a little bit of everything, that's perfectly okay. There are clubs and organizations that teach all kinds of social dance styles as basic or advanced as you'd like. Think about it this way, the more dance styles you try, the more fun you get to have!
