Group Classes

We have group classes in Salsa, Bachata, East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Hustle, Cha Cha Foxtrot, Waltz, Tango, and more!  Check the calendar to see the current schedule.  Our classes are an experience you have to see to believe.  They are designed to teach your feet what to do! No more guessing!

The classes are divided into Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Levels.  There is usually a separate instructor for each level.  The best dancers take their time before moving up in levels.  You’ll have a better understanding of what you should be doing, and you’ll feel much more comfortable with the patterns.

Group classes are meant to be used in conjunction with private lessons.  Private lessons show you more advanced concepts in leading and following, body and arm movement, timing, balance, how to properly turn, and many more things that will make you a good dancer, whereas group classes will concentrate mostly on your foot patterns.

If you’re a Shacker, the price for an hour-long group class is $15 for singles, or $20 for a couple.  If you’re not a Shacker (boo), the classes are $20 per person with no discounts for couples.  You can become a Shacker by getting a Shack Pack, and it will include your first 3 group classes, and a private lesson, too!


At the Beginner level you’ll get the basic patterns you’ll need to be able to dance.  You’ll be using these elements as a basis for all of your future dancing!


The Intermediate level introduces timing changes and what are usually the most popular steps in a dance. Around this point, you’ll start to feel like a dancer.


The Advanced level is pretty challenging, but the patterns look fantastic. If you complete this level and feel comfortable with it, you will be able to dance with anyone, anywhere, and to any music with that particular dance. You’ll be getting a lot of compliments, and people will seek you out as a partner.

After becoming comfortable with dancing at these levels, your confidence will be high! You’ll be able to dance with anyone, no matter what their level is!
