JANUARY ANNOUNCEMENT


Due to the recent announcement from the City, group classes will have to remain completely virtual for a bit longer. In-person slots may become available pending the status of Chicago's current Stay At Home Advisory & Phase 3 Status. We will keep you updated as the situation progresses.

While we wait to safely host in-person group classes, private lessons for individuals and couples are still available as in-person services!

Thank you for your patience and continued support during this time. It truly means the world to us and we look forward to dancing with you again!

Please feel free to message us with any questions you have via email.
