Social Dancing is Fun!
Approximately one-thousand students participate in our affiliated Social Dance programs annually. Our highly successful classes are located in Wellesley, Weston/Wayland, Dover/Sherborn, Hingham, and Cohasset, as well as independent schools. Parents understand the value of social skills training. For students, the Assemblies are a social event! Dancing provides the vehicle by which we teach and reinforce good manners.
Schedules for the 2017-2018 season are coming soon.
