Strictly Ballroom has a fun and easy method of teaching that allows each individual to measure his or her progress while enjoying the benefits of dance. This system has been approved by the National Dance Counsel of America (NDCA) and combines the basic elements of dance to create an exciting new level of social and competitive dance.
Whether you wish to become a confident social dancer or a national competitor, we have the programs and instructors to help you reach your dancing goals.
Introductory Program -- This program is designed to introduce you to the basics of ballroom dancing and help you decide which dances you like. Our goal is to help you build confidence -- confidence in yourself that you really can learn how to dance!
Beginner Program -- This program is a great way for you or you and your partner to learn some of the basic elements of dance and to get an understanding of what you would like your dancing to do for you. This is our first step in teaching students to become confident and comfortable social dancers.
Social Foundation -- This program is the next step from the beginner program. It's designed to give you a strong foundation in the social dances. You will continue to learn more of the basic elements of all social dances while learning to be comfortable in any given social dance situation. This program is a prerequisite for our next level of instruction -- Bronze.
Bronze -- The Bronze program will cement your knowledge of dance, so you can use it for the rest of your life. Bronze social dancers learn a wide variety of steps in all the popular dances. In a short period of time, the Bronze social dancer will gain the fun, poise, and confidence which will enable them to dance with a variety of partners to a variety of music.
Silver -- The Silver program is the next step in the process. These dancers are very comfortable on the dance floor and can lead and follow a variety of dancers. The Silver program builds on Bronze with new patterns and techniques that make other people stop and watch.
This program is great whether dancing socially or competitively, but one thing is for sure: These dancers will grab your attention. However, a solid Bronze foundation is necessary! Never try to rush past a proper foundation. Perfect practices make perfect, not practice makes perfect.
Gold -- The Gold is our highest level of social dancing. These dancers are pros in everything but name. They have great technique and terrific expression.
Exhibition or Showcase Programs -- Our Showcase programs can be used in conjunction with any of our above programs. Here, students practice choreographed dances, whether as show numbers or for competition. These programs allow students to truly express their personalities. If you think this isn't for you, you may think again.
The hours of practice necessary for a choreographed dance solidifies techniques that you may otherwise gloss over. This is sure to make you a better dancer!
Coaching Lessons -- Our coaching lessons provide our students with the chance to work with the top United States and world champions. Coaches are flown in throughout the year to help our students prepare for competition, choreographing showcase routines, or to provide clinics to enhance our students' ability and confidence on the dance floor.
Wedding Programs -- Every couple would prefer to not only be comfortable during their first dance as man and wife, but to also look good doing it. We can help! We will choreograph a simple, yet showy routine that fits your personality and style. You can choose the song, and our wedding coach will make sure you look good as well as have fun.
Enjoy some time as a couple, while you ensure less stress on your wedding day!
