The Ballroom Dance Center has reopened for in-person lessons. However, if you would like the convenience of on-line private lessons on your laptop, tablet or phone, Zoom lessons are still an available option. Over the past few weeks, our teaching staff and students have found these lessons very helpful in achieving certain dance goals.
The Zoom technology is simple, very much like Face Time or Skype. Please call the studio at 706-854-8888, and we can help you begin to take advantage of this innovative learning format from the comfort of home.
Come Zoom With Us!
Dance SMART at The Ballroom Dance Center where our teachers are certified, fun and friendly. We believe our students want to have fun, but we also know students really want to learn. All of our teachers are certified by a nationally recognized association because we are passionate about lifelong learning and strive to continue to be masters of dance. Just like other professionals, our instructors pursue continuing education and bettering themselves on a regular basis. After all, would you go to a surgeon to do your hair or a landscaper to fix your computer? We know you want to pick the right professional for the job!
Get Started – Dance SMART!
Call today to set up a complimentary orientation with BDC founder, owner and instructor Emilie Tobias! On the first lesson, Emilie will show you how fun, interesting and achievable dancing can be!
The building blocks of partner dancing will also be included so new dancers understand the process better and can plan the next steps more easily.
Welcome to a fabulous place to have fun and learn to dance from the right professionals for the job. Dance SMART at The Ballroom Dance Center!
Recently I supervised the repair and replacement of my daughter's living area/kitchen space, which is a long, empty space. As I swept the dust away, I played steel drum music and was dancing with the broom. Then a particular song came on, "She Loves to Dance." I really was moved by the song. Suddenly I realized the song was in my heart, and I absolutely knew I HAD to dance, but I needed to learn properly. I recalled a suggestion years ago that I take dance lessons at The Ballroom Dance Center. At the time, I inwardly rolled my eyes. It was not the season for me - yet. But as I danced with my lovely broom, I realized, also, how much more preferable a live partner would be. I called your studio and made an appointment for an orientation and promptly signed up for 25 lessons, which I am sure is just the beginning of a long journey.
We have gone from taking only one lesson a week to six, and we plan to continue dancing through life. Not only have we improved our dancing, but we have gained confidence and developed lifelong friendships. Dancing has become our hobby and our passion!
The atmosphere is friendly, and every single person on staff is supportive and encouraging. I cannot help but smile when I walk in. I have met precious people with a similar affection for dance. I want all of you to be proud of what you have accomplished in this stubborn old gal.
“My daughter has been dancing at the BDC for over three years, and it has been a great experience. From the moment she started, everyone was so welcoming and friendly. She has so much fun while continually improving as a dancer thanks to the amazingly talented and qualified instructors. Between group classes, private lessons and Friday dances, there is always something going on with chances for her to practice what she has learned. It truly has become like a big family for her, and we are so happy here!”
“After having danced in several cities across the Southeast, The Ballroom Dance Center will always feel like home. The level of instruction and care provided by the staff makes them feel like family! I’d recommend dancing with them if you’re looking for a premier studio in the CSRA!”
“My family and I love The Ballroom Dance Center. The teen classes and the children’s class have been very welcoming to my children. There has always been a very fun atmosphere, and my kids adore the instructors and staff. I have six children who dance here, and I have seen some of my children go from slouching and sullen or shy and hiding into confident young men and young women who love to dance and are willing to help others who are new to the class.”
“We love to dance, but we needed help to be confident on the dance floor. The professionals at the BDC have really tuned up our technique. We look forward to our classes each week with instructors who make it fun. They have exceeded our expectations.”
