    • Do I need a partner?

      You do not need a partner for our Group Dance Classes - both Singles & Couples are welcome as we rotate partners during our Dance Classes.

    • Can I take a class to just try it?

      We feel everyone needs a minimum of 4 weeks to understand and earn a style of dance so we do not offer Group Classes on a trial basis.  

      If you want to take a Private Lesson to see if you like a certain dance style or see if you would like to learn more dancing, you can schedule a 30 minute Private Lesson for $35.  

    • Do you have a place to practice?

      We offer 2 opportunities each month for our dancers to practice what they are learning and to ask questions about dances they are learning or moves they are unsure of.

      We have a DanceSteps Practice Dance on the 2nd Thursday of each month and we play a variety of Ballroom, Country, Latin & Swing Dance music at Full Circle Venue, 3333 Ramada Road from 7:00 - 9:30.  There is a $2 cover charge and a cash bar.  Everyone is invited to bring a munchie to share

      We host Dancing & Chocolate at The Chocolate Bar, 116 W Third Street, from 8:00 - 10:00 on the 4th Wednesday of each month and we play a variety of Latin, Swing & Tango music.  The Chocolate Bar offers signature chocolates & desserts as well as great coffees and signature martinis, wine & craft beers.  This is always a fun evening and we hope you join us for this special night of dancing and support The Chocolate Bar in downtown Grand Island.  There is no cover charge at The Chocolate Bar so please support them with your purchase of beverages and/or desserts.

    • Do we need special shoes?

      We recommend dance shoes for dancing, they are lighter weight, have a sueded leather sole and are comfortable for dancing, turning, etc

      We understand that you may not want to invest in dance shoes initially, so we recommend that you wear a smooth sole shoe - preferably leather, bowling shoes, cowboy boots, etc

      We DO NOT RECOMMEND
      sneakers, lug sole shoes, open back shoes or anything with a rubber sole
