Green Bay Dance Instruction



With over 25 years of experience in teaching dance, we are passionate about what we do!

We are dedicated to listening to your goals and developing a lesson plan that accommodates even the most time-challenged lifestyles. Dances we teach include all types of social dancing including Waltz, Swing, Tango, Polka, Rumba, Salsa, Fox Trot, Cha-Cha and more.

There are many reasons our students have come to learn to dance. We teach ballroom and social dance, provide instruction to prepare for wedding dances: Bride-Groom, Father-Daughter and entire wedding party group lessons. Some students come to get more physically fit, learn a new hobby, gain confidence or just to have fun as a couple or family. For corporate events dancing can provide team-building.

We teach individuals, couples and groups through private and class instruction. From beginner to advanced, newly engaged to Seniors, single or couple; there is a lesson plan to accommodate everyone!

My wife and I have been taking lessons here for about 2+ years. Very friendly people. I was very ‘unsure’ of myself when we first started dancing but Jim has made learning fun and very enjoyable. I would recommend to anyone interested in learning to dance (many varieties offered) also has been a great addition to our marriage having the time to spend together dancing!
