The waltz is an elegant, sweeping dance often seen at weddings and formal galas. This is an incredibly romantic style of dance that is found all over the world. Knowing how to waltz ensures that you’ll always be ready to dance at the most formal and upscale events.


The tango is one of the most energetic, romantic, and passionate forms of dance around. Dancers stay very close and move perfectly together. If you’re looking for something intense and exhilarating to try with your partner, the tango might be the perfect choice!


A high-energy combination of swing and Cuban dance! It is sassy, hip-shaking fun for partners who love to move to uptempo music that is full of bombastic horns and driving drums. Make a splash at your next company party or wedding when you get out on the floor and show everyone how well you can move.


This is a fun Latin dance style that brings together forms from cha-cha, mambo, and Cuban dances. Great for couples who are looking for a fun activity to do together!


We teach all sorts of different styles of disco dancing, which is why we love to teach it! You’ll spot influences from styles as diverse as swing, mambo, samba, and foxtrot!

Be prepared for a fun theme party or throw one of your own to show off your new moves!
