Group Classes

All Tempo group classes are appropriate for both couples and singles - you never need a partner to attend any Tempo dance events or activities! Unless otherwise noted, classes are drop-in. If you are unsure about which classes are right for you, get in touch with us or you can even stop in and observe a class before attending.

Beginner Classes

Beginner Dance Drop Ins (Mondays and Fridays 7 to 8 pm)
Our beginner group classes are ideal for students who are completely new to dancing, or for those who have prior dance experience but want a review or wish to learn the basics of a new dance.
Classes are drop-in (unless otherwise noted) and a different dance is featured each class. You will learn basic steps, how to lead or follow, and dance the steps to music. Dances repeat regularly, so if you miss one or need to come several times to the same one, you’ll be able to catch it when it repeats.

COST: $10 per person, per class 

Intermediate Classes

Rhythm/Latin Technique (alternating Tuesdays 7 to 8 pm)
Students will learn and review the core concepts of the Rhythm/Latin dances (including cha cha, mambo, swing, bolero, rumba and samba). Material will include cuban motion, leg action, arm styling, and variations of basic patterns. 

Ballroom/Smooth Technique (alternating Tuesdays 7 to 8 pm)
Students will be exposed to the principals of the Smooth dances (including waltz, foxtrot, tango, Viennese waltz and quickstep). Material will include developing a strong frame, transitioning from open to closed dance position, proper footwork and musicality.

COST: $10 per person, per class 

Advanced Classes

Advanced Latin/Rhythm Technique (Wednesdays 8 to 9 pm)

Advanced Ballroom/SmoothTechnique (Thursdays 7 to 8 pm)

COST: $10 per person, per class 

Series Classes

Four-week series classes offer students the opportunity to build their skills in a specific dance or dance style over a period of four weeks. Each class builds upon the information presented in previous classes, so that by the end of the series, you will have acquired the fundamental steps/patterns and technique for that dance. Dances and skill levels of the series will vary each month.

 Feel free to bring a camera as the teacher will review covered material for you to record.

COST: $40 per person; payment and registration for the full series on the first day of class.
* Please note: no drop-ins after the first class.
