Ballroom By The Bay offers group classes for both beginner and intermediate/advanced dancers. These classes are typically one hour dance lessons taught in a group setting of up to 30 people. Group classes allow students to progress with other dancers of their level, dance with multiple partners, and try out the moves our instructors teach first hand. They are informative, great for your health, and, most importantly, fun! Each group class costs $10 per person. No partner necessary! All you need is yourself! We recommend wearing comfortable shoes or dance shoes.
Beginner Dancers: For our beginner dancers, we have group classes on Monday and Tuesday at 7 p.m. Each beginner group class series lasts six weeks with one class per week. Over the course of the six classes, you’ll learn the basic patterns of one to three ballroom dances to help you get out on the dance floor with confidence and have fun! Check out our Calendar to see what classes we’re offering this month. Some classes you have to look forward to are Swing, Salsa, Waltz and Cha Cha.

Each class costs $10 per person. No experience necessary!
