Group Dance Class Latin Ballroom Lesson Chicago

Chicago Adult Group Class Schedule

Group Classes 

At Sway Dance, we try to make taking group class easy, fun, and flexible.  We have at least 2 instructors in any group class over 6 people.  Our classes are continuously evolving and changing depending on interest, level and class size.  Get much needed experience while dancing with several partners and getting individual attention from our instructors.  

8 week group classes are the perfect way for beginners to start. It's important to be consistent when you first start learning a new skill.  Reinforcing each week is essential in order to retain new information. No experience required and no partner necessary!  

After you have completed your 8 week introductory course, we invite you to switch to our punch card system.  A punch card allows you to occasionally miss class without losing money.  A punch card does expire 4 months after purchase, but leaves you with plenty of flexibility to come and go when conflicts arise. Some experience is required before joining our punch card program.

Performance classes will prepare you for the stage!  We offer at least 4 performance opportunities per year for every performance class.  Regular attendance is required to participate.  Costumes and dance shoes are required.  Instructor permission is required to participate.
