PRIVATE LESSONS FOR INDIVIDUALS, COUPLES & SMALL GROUPS

 Our Studio is available for private lessons for

  • extra help with the class material
  • to learn a particular dance
  • work on your technique
  • your own small group dance class

The Wedding Reception traditionally includes a solo dance for the Bride and Groom. This aspect of your special day deserves as much attention to detail as the ceremony, bridal dress and banquet, yet is often overlooked and too often the Bride and Groom simply "hug and sway", simply because they do not know what else to do. We do a great deal of wedding dance preparation and would be pleased to assist you.

You will get so much more out of your dance classes if you are able to find a little time to practice in between to keep your dancing skills refresh and help you retain what you are working on in class.  Plus they are a great opportunity to enjoy a social night out with others in the ballroom dance community and spend some time with your friends (or make new ones!).  We offer two practice session nights per week, from 7:00 - 8:30:

1)  Tuesday nights - in the gym at Lochside Elementary School, 1145 Royal Oak Dr.
2)  Friday nights - in the gym at North Saanich Middle School, 10400 McDonald Park Rd.

Both venues are large school gyms so there is lots of space for you to practice with the music that we play, or for you to focus on your own without disturbing anyone else.  A staff member is on hand to provide music and help you where possible with material that you personally have previously encountered in one of our classes or workshops.

In lieu of a membership fee, you pay only for the sessions that you attend. This small charge helps to cover the cost of the hall and staff. A single session costs $6 pp, or you can purchase a punchcard, which is good for ten sessions for $52.50.
