Free Dance Classes

Dance is a social experience. In group dance classes, you’ll get to know new people who want to learn dance as much as you do. Sure, you might not know what you’re doing at first, but our dance classes are filled with supportive people who all share a love of dance and they’re going to help you get caught up quickly. Dancing means always learning something new. How often do we adults get a chance to learn new skills just for the heck of it? Not often enough! It feels good to learn new things or to get better at something. And, yes, it’s fun! Dance probably has been a part of human culture since the beginning, because most of us have loved to do it.

So, what are you waiting for? Even if you’ve never taken dance classes before, it’s never too late! You don’t have to perform on stage or put on a leotard. Just check out the following dance classes and sign up to give it a try! You’re going to find a welcoming and positive group of dancers who will be so happy to have you join them.

Register for the SaddleBrooke Ballroom Dance Club’s (SBDC) dance classes to be held every Wednesday in June. We’ll have two sets of classes. The first runs from 10 a.m. until noon in the Vermilion room at the SaddleBrooke One clubhouse. This will be an International Rumba class, taught by Dave Poferl and Mary Borkovec. Register at [email protected] The second set of classes will be from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Mariposa Room at the DesertView Performing Arts Center. Bruce and Pat Stead will be teaching Ariz. Two Step.
