Please note the class times and class break-downs below:

(attend the class that fits your age & ability best)


9:30 AM  -  KIDS’ CLASS

This 30-minute class is designed for youngsters ages 8 - 11 and will be taught by our teacher assistants (who will be overseen by Curt & Wendy). This class will introduce partner-dancing to the younger set. They will learn the concept of lead & follow and the importance of a good dance frame, while learning basic steps in many ballroom  dance styles.


9:30 AM  -  BEGINNING TEENS

This 60-minute class is for ages 12 - 18 who are new to ballroom dancing, and will be taught by our teacher assistants (who have worked closely with Curt & Wendy).  This is the place to start, when you are new to our classes, to get all of your basics fully in place. Eight different styles of dance will be taught over the course of eight months. We prefer that the younger teens stay in this class for two years; older teens may move to the Intermediate Class once they feel confident with the basics taught in this class.


11:15 AM  -  INTERMEDIATE TEENS

This 60-minute class is for ages 12 - 18, who have completed at least one year in the Beginning class and feel confident that they know all of the basics well.  The class will be taught by Curt & Wendy Johnson, along with a couple of our teacher assistants, as we expect this to be our largest class each week. Here, we will move beyond the basics into more complex step patterns, all while learning floor-craft (the ability to maneuver around a crowded dance floor) and perfecting your lead & follow.


10:00 AM  -  ADVANCED TEENS

Students will be hand-selected by Curt & Wendy to attend this 60-minute class. If we feel you qualify, you will be invited to attend by e-mail. We also may come up to you in the Intermediate class at any point throughout the school year, and verbally invite you to attend the Advanced class, if we feel you are ready. This class is for accomplished dancers who have the ability to go further with their dancing. The step patterns will be more complicated and this class will take you to the next level in your dance education. If you feel you qualify and weren’t invited to attend, please let us know and we will give you consideration (after all, we don’t know everybody, and we might have simply missed your ability!). But do understand that this class is meant to be smaller, because the moves will be more complicated.




SPECTATORS:  Although there is room for parents and other siblings to hang out and watch classes, and we have always encouraged this in the past ... we want to encourage family members to drop your kids off for class and pick them up afterward, if you can this year. Use this time to run errands, go shopping, or whatever. It will help us keep the noise level down in the studio if we have less spectators. We will never tell you that you can’t stay and watch the classes; just if you do, please keep a close eye (and ear) on your younger children and even yourselves as you visit with other moms, to keep the noise level down and commotion on the sidelines to a minimum.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
