Lessons 2

Samantha and Brian teach both group and private lessons. Private lessons offer individual attention, a pace that is appropriate for you, and the flexibility to work within your busy schedule. Group classes offer a more social experience and the opportunity to dance with many different partners to develop your social dancing. The students who see the most progress in the smallest amount of time are often the students who take both private lessons and group classes together. All group classes are taught in four week cycles to allow students to focus on specific elements and figures before moving on to new concepts. See below for class descriptions and pricing.
