Price Adjustment and practice times-
You may have noticed a change in our pricing and the length of most of the group classes. What I have done here at BDC is changed the classes to add on a half hour of guided practice. This half hour is at the end of the lesson for the beginning (Foundations) classes and at the beginning of the lessons (used for warm up) for the Int. and Adv. classes. What does guided practice mean? It means that students will review and try out the moves and techniques they have learned in class while the teacher or assistant teacher remain available for questions (these can end up being 5 min mini privates). It is a way for us to get more personal hands on training for the students. We have just finished our first round of classes done in this format and have noticed a significant increase in learning and retention for the dances! EXCITING. Anyway, that is why the increase in the class prices :)
Get Started Today
I often answer the phone for potential students who are completely new to the world of ballroom dance. I will hear many reasons why they waited so long to call, such as schedule, money...all valid reasons, but what I really want to know is what changed to make now the right time? Aren't we always busy? Isn't money always a little tight?
Dancing is such a positive influence for people when they finally come that most can't help but wonder why they didn't start sooner. People meet their best friends dancing. People lose weight dancing. People improve their heart health, their brain power, their muscles mass and flexibility dancing. Most of all people bring an element of fun and social connection back into their life in a very positive way.
For as low as $12 a week you can start dancing. For as low as 1 hour a week you can start dancing. Go on change your life today!

Fall classes are now available on the calendar. Classes are looking a little different, a little better this fall with our new "Track" method of learning. Students may sign up for the Ballroom track, the Latin track or the Swing track, or take all three. There are also a few other classes thrown into the mix "a la carte." What is a Track? This is a method of learning that lets students concentrate on a certain style of dance, if they desire it, and reach for goals in their dancing. Tracks are designed to bring you through the Bronze (first level) of dancing and receive student certification (like belt testing in Karate) for their dance achievements.
