Proven 3-Way System of Learning

To get the most out of the time and money you invest in your lessons at Take the Lead,

we encourage students to use as many of the tools of learning we offer. 

Group classes allow you to practice steps repeatedly with a variety of partners. 

Private lessons work on specific techniques and styling personal to you and your goals. 

Dance socials give you the opportunity to practice in ‘real world’ situations what

you’ve been working on in your private and group classes.



Group Classes give you the opportunity to dance with a variety of partners, build confidence, develop good dance habits and meet other students. Men will learn to strengthen their lead as well as learn to maneuver around the floor with more confidence. Women will learn to follow more easily and with

greater poise.

Group lessons are held for different dances and levels.   4 weeks classes are $50, 6 week for $75, or 8 weeks for $95. $15 a class per person if paying week to week. New classes are starting every few weeks —

No partner or experience is necessary to join a group class.

perfectly for you.

During your Private Lessons, you will receive personalized instruction that will help you achieve your specific goals in dancing. Your instructor will spend the time necessary on technique, styling and general dance improvement.


An up-to-date record of everything you have learned will also be kept as part of your instruction. Take them alone or in combination

with Group Classes.

Every odd Saturday of the month, the studio opens to  an evening of general dancing starting from 7:30 to 10pm.


 We welcome everyone from studios far and wide whether you are a brand new or experienced dancer. Dance socials allow you to practice what you’re learning in your group and private lessons in an environment where everyone is here to help.


You will gain confidence in maneuvering around the floor and develop skills to help you in other social settings.  You will also meet, network, and socialize with other people in the area who share common personal and/or business interests.


A cash bar is available for $15

Our Client Say It Best

"This is a wonderful Studio and the owners strive very hard to make you feel part of their “dance community” … they are very welcoming from the moment you walk in to when you leave. I have gone back for more than one group dance and am now doing the Friday night Workshops. Peter and Debbie are the best and you will not be disappointed if you try a dance class at Take The Lead Dance Studio."
