Emerald Coast Dance offers instruction in each of the following dances:
- Two Step
- Cha Cha
- Night Club Two Step
- East Coast Swing
- West Coast Swing
Group classes give students the chance to learn new dance moves in an environment where you can practice your steps before hitting the dance floor. We work on a rotation basis which means we frequently rotate partners during each class. It is fine if you want to work only with your partner, but it has been our experience that the leader or the follower may rely on the other too much in order to complete the patterns. Each has the responsibility to do their own part without your partner’s help. Rotating partners allows you to discover if can do your part successfully.
Group classes are offered weekly at 2 locations: CSA Palm Harbor hosts East Coast Swing Classes on Tuesdays, West Coast Swing & a 2 Step Class on Thursday. The Clearwater Countyside Recreation Center hosts East and West Coast Swing Classes on Wednesdays. See our Schedule tab for more information on our group classes, workshops and locations for private lessons.
Private lessons are all about your individual development. We personalize each dance lesson based on your needs, desires, and goals. We give constant, real-time correction and positive feedback individualized to your specific learning style. Private lessons are 60 minutes in length. By far, individual instruction is the most effective way to accelerate your progress as a dancer.
