What we're about

If you have been thinking about trying ballroom dancing, or are a seasoned dancer, then this is the meetup for you! We want to connect ballroom and social dancers in the Greater Capital Region of Upstate NY through group lessons, social dance parties/practice sessions, and special events.

A variety of ballroom and social dance styles such as waltz, foxtrot, tango, swing, hustle, rumba, cha cha, salsa, merengue, slow dance and more will be featured. Prominent area instructors will be highlighted along with a variety of local venues.

New beginners to experienced dancers and everyone in between are encouraged to join, as are singles and couples! Classes and parties will be non-intimidating, in a fun and friendly group atmosphere. This is a great way to experience different styles of dance and new instructors, and a great way to meet new friends.

Join today!
