Workshops: Just-the-Basics & More!

Workshops provide an opportunity to get specialized material in a single 90-minute or 4-hour format. They frequently cover such topics as leading & following tips, dance-specific styling & technique, and pattern variations – in addition to offering "crash courses" for dances not generally offered in our weekly format. Topics vary by month.

Wedding Dance Workshop

Attending a wedding this year? Preparing for a First Dance as bride and groom? Worried about the traditional father / daughter (or mother / son) dance? This workshop is the place for you! Learn the fundamentals of partner dancing, including leading and following, dance floor etiquette, how to gracefully get on and off the dance floor, and how to plan for the unexpected. You will learn the basic steps of waltz, foxtrot, and classic slow dance then have an opportunity to practice them with highly-skilled instructors.

Just-the-Basics ~ Leading & Following Made Simple

Next Offering: To be Announced

Learn the magic ingredient found in all partner dances! The unspoken language of Leading and Following allows two people to move together in perfect harmony. In the first half of this one-day workshop you will learn the fundamentals of how movement is communicated by a leader and received by a follower, including forward, backward and side movements, plus turns, rhythm changes and more. Then, in the afternoon, apply these new skills while you learn some basic steps in Waltz, Swing and Salsa.

Beginners are welcome and encouraged. No partner necessary.
