New class – Foundation Ballroom
Looking for a way to be more comfortable in social interactions? How about building more self-confidence? Or, improving both your physical and mental health?
Dance lessons teach more than dance steps. When done correctly, natural by-products of ballroom dancing include: improved posture; body awareness, balance and grace in everyday movement; improved social skills, and more. And, dancing provides fun and excitement.
We are starting a New Student class in January that will cover the fundamentals of American Style Ballroom Dance. It will focus on the most popular styles of ballroom to give you the ability to dance to a wide variety of music with good technique and confidence.
The dances that will be covered include: Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Cha Cha, Rumba, and Swing. The Focus in this class will be:
- Rhythm and timing of the most common and popular styles of American Ballroom dance
- Frame, Footwork, and posture
- Floor Craft and Ballroom Etiquette
Learning these elements of Ballroom dance affects people both when they are on the dance floor and outside in the world. Being comfortable with approaching new people and interacting in a friendly relaxed manner becomes part of life. Whether you are a High School student, Business Professional, or Retired and looking for a hobby; ballroom has something to offer.
The class runs from January 8th through February 16th, every Monday and Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. In addition to the 12 group sessions, students will be provided a pair of Very Fine brand ballroom dance shoes. Cost of the class in $349 per person. No partner is necessary.

The Bloomington Ballroom Dance Center is a great place to develop or improve your dancing skills. We specialize in Ballroom, Swing, Latin, and Country Dance styles. If you’re new to ballroom dancing, we start by building a good foundation of the basic elements of partnership dance. Then, we build on that at each lesson. Our goal is to help you develop the skill and confidence needed to feel great on the dance floor and reach your goals for choosing dancing. While our focus is partnership dancing, you can learn to dance without bringing a partner with you.
