Take The Lead's Social Dance program is comprised of  three formats: Group Classes, Private Lessons, and Private Events.  Each has its own benefit. Scroll down below to learn more about each type of lesson.


Specialty Services

     Take the Lead offers a multitude of services, all of which are custom tailored to the individuals or groups attending. Our services include:

Social Dance Instruction

     For an Individual, a Couple, or a group wishing to blossom from a mere wallflower to a full fledged dancer. Take The Lead offers dance lessons in the following formats:

Private Dance Lessons: 

     Private lessons are ultimately the best tool when learning how to dance. People who invest in these lessons will see a much higher rate of learning when compared to group classes. This is due to the one-on-one nature of the lessons that really allows the instructor to connect with the students and assess their needs. No partner? No problem, a high number of individuals choose to take their lessons with an instructor to focus on and hone their personal skills.

Group Dance Lessons: 

     For many people, group dance lessons are useful not only in learning to dance, but also to make new friends and to exercise while having fun! In order to make sure our classes are paced so that everyone can feel comfortable while learning, we offer group classes in series that vary depending on the time of year. Be sure to join our e-mail list, so you can know what events are coming up!

Open Practice:

     After people learn a new skill, it needs to be honed and reviewed or the ability will soon be forgotten. It was with this concept in mind that the Open Practice was created. These events are used as an extension of the lessons and are different nights every week for optimal flexibility, even for those with fixed schedules.
