Our winter/spring classes are run in 8 and 10 week sessions for $100/$125.  For NEW friends who want to try it out they can pay $15 for first class and then decide whether to sign up for the session.  Please help us by spreading the word and inviting friends 😊.

Description of class levels: (Many people take the same level multiple times and that is normal as there are so many dances to learn. The more you practice and dance the faster you will feel confident to advance.)
