Where can I dance and practice?
- Our dance studio offers free practice space if
you're an existing student. You can come anytime during our business
hours to master your dance steps, stretch or practice with a partner.
Every Friday night we encourage you to join us for a weekly beginner
friendly group class. You'll be introduced to the other students,
be able to practice lead/follow with different dance partners and
learn the basic steps of the dance that is on the schedule. After
the class we invite you to stay for our dance party where we play
ballroom & latin music, so you can practice everything you've
learned with our instructors and other students.

social dancing there are ways you can go further:
Two times a year we hold Showcases. Showcase is when we invite
our students to perform. Usually it's held at our dance studio in
summer and winter times. You pick a dance style, and then your instructor
will put a dance routine to a preferred song. It will give you an
incredible experience to feel what's like to be on the floor on
your own with your teacher, performing a choreography in a dance costume.
Competitions. Would like to go even further? Great!
For dance competitions you can dance with your instructor. There're
4 local ballroom dance competitions that are held in San Jose and
San Francisco, and a lot more in South California and other states.
These are high end, beautifully organized events. When you compete
there're other couples on the dance floor with you. You can choose
what dance styles you'd like to do and how many. Each dance can
be judged individually or as a group. Competitions are open for
all ages & levels.
