Not sure which class?

Our FUNdementals class is designed around people who are new to balboa or swing and lindy hop or are wanting to review the essentials.

If you have a good grasp of the basic footwork and a few moves under your belt, then our All Levels class is for you.

Everyone is welcome to our social dance time. It is a great opportunity to socialize, practice some moves and get comfortable on the social dance floor!
