Looking for dance lessons? You have many options:
At the USA Dance sponsored dances - every dance begins with two lessons. The first half-hour is an intermediate lesson for more experienced dancers. The second half-hour is a lesson suitable for beginners. The instructors routinely ask couples to switch partners as they practice. If you are uncomfortable with this, you don't need to do it. However, most people do, which means if you come alone, you will still have someone to practice dancing with. See our home page for information on the next dance.
Community Education - Community Education offers you an inexpensive and fun way to learn a variety of dances. The schedule is always changing, so there is always something new to learn. Go to the Dancing section in the Rochester Community Ed adult brochure to see a long listing of available offerings. You may register with a partner or by yourself. Many USA Dance members volunteer at these dances, so you will not be alone!
