What we're about
LEARN TO DANCE!
Learn to dance ballroom, swing, tango, salsa, and lots more from nationally certified dance instructors, Richard and Debbie Love!
Group classes, private lessons, and social dance events are available throughout the year! Singles, couples, and beginners welcome! You do not need to have any previous dance experience to attend. Always a fun, friendly group of people!
WEST COAST SWING AT THE DOWNTOWN YMCA!
We have weekly Friday evening West Coast Swing classes at the Downtown Y! Two separate classes take place simultaneously: one class for beginners and another class for those that are beyond the basics. Richard teaches one class and Debbie the other. Check our meetup calendar for details!
What is West Coast Swing? Here is a video of a West Coast Swing performance routine danced by us with our students:
Want to salsa? We teach a casino style of salsa called rueda. It is danced in a circle with a continual change of partners. To see what this looks like, check out this video of us dancing a salsa-rueda performance routine with our students! Currently, we are working on a performance routine with a group of our students who are experienced in this dance. In the near future, we will set up a class that anyone can join.
We attend a variety of social dance events throughout the year. Some of these events will be posted on our meetup calendar, other social events will be announced to regular students only. Attend our classes, take private lessons, and learn to dance, so you can join us too!
OUT-OF-TOWN DANCE MEETUP IN PAGOSA SPRINGS, COLORADO!
Every summer, we host an out-of-town dance meetup in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. Over a three-day weekend, we teach a variety of dance workshops where our meetup members come together with the Let's Dance Pagosa! meetup group to learn, have fun dancing, and socialize together. This is a great way to vacation and meet new dance friends too! Both singles and couples of all ages are welcome; plus, it is not necessary to have a partner to attend. For more information on our next summer out-of-town meetup, see our calendar.
Private lessons are always available. Cost for private lessons is $50 per one hour session for a single or for a couple. Please contact us through our meetup group to setup a private lesson and for additional details. Private lessons allow you to focus on your own personal dance choices and, also, allow you to learn at your own pace. Contact us today, and be sure to include your contact information, if you are not a member of our meetup group.
Give the gift of dancing! Personalized gift certificates are available. Let us know what you want and we'll customize a gift certificate for you.
