More Info on all of our Fun, February Happenings!


What a busy month at our studio. Your feet may never leave the dance floor!

We’re starting the fun on Friday, Feb. 10, with our Valentine’s Day-themed Lovefest Practice Party. This will be our normal practice party from 7:30-9 p.m., but we encourage students to wear red or pink to celebrate Valentine’s Day. It’s always nice to go out dancing with that special someone on Valentine’s Day. Dancing promotes closeness and a warmer relationship, more intimacy and mutual pleasure.

Soon to follow after the Lovefest Practice Party:

  • Feb. 13 and 14 (Monday and Tuesday): We are having a class for ladies only on the 13th for “Galentine’s Day” and men only on the 14th. Both are scheduled for 8:15 p.m. Ladies, here’s a chance to work on a few steps away from prying eyes. Fellas, here’s a chance to work on not stepping on your lady’s toes. These will be super classes and you’ll pick up some fabulous pointers to dazzle your partner with.
  • Feb. 22 (Wednesday): Christine Harvey is in the studio for a day of coaching. Students can book their coaching lessons with their instructors or at the front desk. Cost is $170 per lesson and must be prepaid by Sunday, Feb. 15, to reserve the spot. Christine will also be teaching a Master Class on Viennese waltz at 7:30 p.m. Christine is a World Class Adjudicator and judges competitions all over the United States. Cost is $20 per person. Well worth it to learn from one of the best!
  • Feb. 24 (Friday): Sock Hop Practice Party – A normal practice party from 7:30-9 p.m., with a ‘40s and ‘50s twist. Students are encouraged to dress up. Still own a poodle skirt, ladies? Guys, got chinos in the closet? A knit shirt? Loafers? You’ll look marvelous when you hit the dance floor to those great old songs.
  • March 3 (Friday): Dress Rehearsal for our March Competition (March 9-11). This is mandatory for all competitors. It runs during our normal party time from 7:30-9 p.m.
