New Student Special
1 Group Lesson ● 1 30-minute Private Lesson ● 1 Social Dance Admission
Private lessons give you the most for your minute as they are usually taken individually or as a couple (though up to 6 people is permitted) with an instructor. Individual attention ensures the most rapid and thorough absorption of the material YOU want to master. Additionally, privates are far easier to manage for those with irregular hectic schedules.
Social dancing is particularly suitable for those just getting started, those who would like to learn the skills necessary to feel comfortable and confident dancing in any setting such as a night club, corporate event, wedding or party.
Competitive dancing is a highly stylized and more disciplined form of competitive dancesport as seen on TV. This style can take your dancing to a higher level with endless possibilities, and is just as much fun as social dancing.

About Beginner Lessons
New to Ballroom dancing? At Springs Rhythm, we offer beginner level group classes. Beginner classes are for those with little or no ballroom dancing experience. Our beginner classes offer an interrelated system of teaching. Students learn all the popular dances used in social settings, from weddings to night clubs and ballrooms. Many of the steps in one dance can be used in another…we will show you how. You will learn faster, and have a good time doing it!
For a schedule of our beginner group classes, see the Class Schedule page. We also provide private lessons for beginners.
Beginner classes are taught, assuming that you have had no experience in ballroom dance before. The group lessons are one hour a week with 2 separate dances per month, usually a slow/formal dance, and one more social and fun. We begin at the beginning of the month with the basic steps, and teach new moves throughout the month.
About Competitive Dancing
At Springs Rhythm, we offer our students opportunities to experience the thrill and excitement of competition. Contrary to what you may think, Latin and Ballroom competitions are for dancers of all ages and levels. Even if you have only been dancing for two months, there is a category specifically designed for you.
A competition, regardless of the size, presents the challenge of goal achievement. Dancing is always fun, but when you have a specific purpose in mind, you are able to progress faster. Establishing an end objective can contribute to greater focus in your lessons, and provide incentive to push yourself to new levels. The great thing about this sport is that working toward a goal can be just as much fun as attaining it.
In addition, competitions are a useful way to evaluate your own progress. Most competitors have their performances recorded on video. After the competition, you can assess the performance with your instructor to determine which areas demonstrated progress, and which may require more attention. A picture is worth a thousand words, and video is one of the most useful learning tools a dancer can utilize.
Lastly, competitions offer a unique experience. The dance floor can bring out the best in all of us: stimulating not only our dancing, but confidence and character as well. Great music, glamorous costumes and vibrant energy fill the ballroom from morning ‘til night with people from all over the world who share the love of dance.
It is advisable to take two or more lessons per week on a competition program with more time spent practicing as the competition date draws near. Springs Rhythm also offers consultations on costuming, hair, and makeup as you prepare for competition, or to look great at your special social event.
