A shortage of dance venues in Fort Worth led to the evolution of a new brand of social dancing: "Guerrilla Ballroom," pioneered by the Ballroom Dance Class at the Downtown Fort Worth YMCA. The idea is to dance whenever and wherever the opportunity presents itself: plazas, parks, museums, bars, festivals - wherever there's music! 

If you're not quite ready to take your dancing out on the town, the Downtown Y offers a comprehensive "Guerrilla Ballroom" program:

-  Group Lessons several times a week:
Learn new moves and practice with several partners.  The class is progressive and is shaped by the memberships' unique goals and needs. 'Ballroom' dances are taught as a foundation for more 'social' dances - the result is an ability to dance unconditionally, with high-quality movement and clear communication on the dance floor; 

-  Private Lessons tailored to individual dance goals and needs:
Focus on detail and refine the mechanics of 'how' to move well.  At least two privates per week are recommended in the beginning to build a solid foundation, and at least one private per week to maintain progress;      

-  Weekly Dance Socials are a chance try out the Guerrilla Ballroom approach:  
Pick up new moves in Beginner and Intermediate Group Dance Lessons, practice in the comfort of a nurturing learning environment, participate in occasional demonstrations, and bring your friends!  No fee, Guests welcome; 

-  Performance Opportunities give you a goal and a reason to  strive:
Master technique and create the muscle memory you need to feel effortless on any dance floor.  Members often perform at Nursing Homes, Retirement Centers, Bars, YMCA's and local Parks and Plazas.

The Guerrilla Ballroom Program at the Downtown Y borrows the approach of traditional ballroom studios; however the application is unorthodox and community-oriented.

For a sense of joy, accomplishment and adventure, try Guerrilla Ballroom!
