Lessons Before Dances


learn to danceLessons Before Social Ballroom Dances

Lessons  before dances are often, but not always, included in the price of admission to the Social Ballroom Dances. The calendar will have information about lessons offered before dances. 


 usually includes the following lessons in the price of admission:

• a beginner lesson
• an intermediate lesson

The beginner and intermediate lessons are usually offered concurrently before the Sunday night dance starts. You may attend either  of these lessons with your paid admission to the dance.

Should I take the beginner or the intermediate level lesson?  If you are not thoroughly familiar with the basic steps of a dance, we suggest you take the beginner level lesson.  This has nothing to do with how long you have been dancing in general. The instructor for the intermediate level lesson will assume that all students are familiar with the basic steps of the dance and will spend little time, if any, teaching the basics. If you are not familiar with the basic steps,  you probably will find yourself falling behind and not enjoying the lesson.


or on other special occasions often include a beginner/intermediate lesson in the price of admission. Sometimes, however, a lesson is not included.  Such information will be provided in the calendar of events.


does not include lessons in the admission price.
