Discover the fun of social dance!

Social dance includes standard ballroom dances like Waltz, Fox Trot, and Cha-Cha; these dances have endured because they are fun and everyone can learn them. But social dance also includes the hot and sultry West Coast Swing, the sexy Salsa, the energetic Lindy, and the exotic Argentine Tango. You will find something for every interest and every ability level at our studio.
