Let’s Dance! Starz Ballroom – Westlake Studio

Starz Ballroom has one of the best student dance programs available today.  Award winning instructors will guide you through the exciting world of dance so you can learn socially with confidence. Starz Ballroom’s proven technique of combining private lessons with group lessons and practice parties will help you obtain all of your dancing goals.

Private dance lessons move at your pace, the instructor focuses on your desired dance style demonstrating the basics and fine-tuning your technique. During group lessons, the instructors teach men and women separately, and then bring couples together to practice with or without music. Throughout the class, students rotate partners to improve their leading and following skills.

Classes are typically scheduled Monday–Friday and Saturday by appointment.  After students have had time to master some moves, they can show off their new-found skills in dance parties with students of similar abilities. The dance parties set a lively and fun atmosphere to mimic an actual social gathering.
