Country Line Dancing, Partner Dancing, and Events

Dance Information

Here at Dance Country we offer  several line dance and partner dance classes sure to increase your confidence dancing! Whether you’re a seasoned dancer, just dance-curious, or anything in between, we welcome you. 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! Where will you jump in? Check out our class options below!

Are you brand new to line dancing? There’s no experience necessary for this class!

Have you taken one or more of our beginner classes or danced elsewhere? If you’re confident with all of the basic line dance steps and able to dance beginner dances without depending on someone calling the steps or watching others around you, our Improver classes would be a good fit for you!

Are you able to pick up all Beginner dances on the fly and can learn more complicated dances at a quicker pace? Many (but not all) of the Improver and Intermediate dances taught overlap, but the pace of the teaching is faster in this class rather than in the Improver class.

It is highly recommended that you have taken at least one beginner line dance class first and have learned the basic steps. This makes learning partner dances much easier as you will need to add in the arm work and working with a partner. You don’t need to have a partner for our beginner class. Come and we will pair you up if needed!

If you are confident with all the line dance steps and able to execute the beginner partner dances, this class is for you! Partners needed for this class!

To sign up for classes, visit us in studio at 1666 Route 12, Gales Ferry, CT 06335, or email, or call 860-941-4479. We can’t WAIT to dance with you!

Online Registration Coming Soon!

Event Information

In addition to classes, Dance Country is home to fun and exciting events like Trivia, Workshops, Potlucks, Live Music, Exclusive Classes, and more! 

No need to be a trivia buff to play, so bring your team of up to 6 people, dinner, drinks and join us for a fun time with family and friends.  No team, no worries- there are usually teams that are short players and you can jump onto one of them.  We will provide a plate of homemade desserts to each table at the half. 


Doors open at 5:30 and game starts around 6PM (usually ends about 8:30)

Cost is $10 a person

Game consists of 4 rounds of 4 questions each with a bonus questions in between each round and 2 at the end. 

We have great prizes for the Best Team Name (so be creative) as well as 1st ($50), 2nd ($35) and 3rd ($25) in the form of a gift card to a local business in New London County.
