The Ward Carter system of teaching group lessons is built on changing partners. This is the man’s opportunity to learn how to lead different ladies and similarly, the opportunity for the ladies to learn to follow leads form different men. This teaching method is proven to help you become a better dancer. If you and your partner make mistakes on a step, you will realize it when you dance with the next partner. If for some reason you do not want to change partners, you would be best serve by taking a private lesson.
Practice Makes Perfect
To aid in your learning, practicing truly does help. Learning dance requires some repetition. Call and reserve your practice time. The cost is $10 per hour. There is no charge for customers that purchase a package of private lessons.

You can use the credit voucher for other classes or private lessons. No credits will be issued after the first class. We do not offer cash refunds. Credits are not issues on repeat classes.
