What we're about

Kaleidoscope Dance started as an idea to make changes in the current model of business in the dance industry.

There are two things specifically that drive our vision:

1) We want to create a place where dancers of all levels of talent and experience feel welcome to come dance with instructors of their choosing without any pressure to “join” or sign contracts.

2) We want to create a professional, reliable place where independent dance instructors can come to teach lessons on a high-quality dance floor for reasonable floor use fees.

Kaleidoscope has group classes, private lessons, and events.

For those that are looking for private instruction, we have experienced Kaleidoscope Instructors that provide quality instruction.

As a studio, Kaleidoscope has regular operating hours and a calendar for the upcoming month posted on the website. During operating hours, someone is at the studio to check clients in, take calls, answer questions, reserve floor use, and schedule lessons. Studio use outside operating hours is available by appointment.

Easily accessible right off the 101 at Guadalupe, on the border of Tempe and Mesa.

*Please note, having a clean, pebble free floor is very important to us. You can leave your street shoes at the door and switch into your dance shoes or carefully clean your street shoes on the shoe brushes outside the door. Thank you for your understanding.

Please contact us for any questions you have! We want you to feel welcome and comfortable. Thank you!

Gentle Tai Chi Qigong

Needs a location

$14.00

Available live on Zoom
https://www.kaleidoscope-ballroom.com/class-registration

Gentle Tai Chi-Qigong consists of gentle Qigong (Chee gung) stretches and Tai Chi (Tie chee) movements that help improve circulation and release stress. Gentle Tai Chi (originally called Easy Tai Chi) was developed over 15 years ago for Parkinson's patients. This form of tai chi is done standing with both feet on the floor. The moves are stationary, so it can also be done sitting. Balance aids such as the back of a chair or a walker can be used, if needed.

Line dances consist of a short sequence of steps that are repeated throughout the song. In this class the steps are choreographed so that there are no turns and dancers remain facing the front wall. The instructor cues the upcoming moves so memorizing the sequence is not required. Dances are danced to contemporary music.
This class is for all ages and abilities.
