Get Started – Dance SMART!
Call the studio today at 706-854-8888 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 can understand the process better, and along with Emilie, plan the next step for getting on the dance floor.
Welcome to a fabulous place to have fun and learn to dance from the right professionals for the job. No partners are necessary to start, and students of all ages are encouraged to Dance SMART at The Ballroom Dance Center!
“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.”
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!
You are inspiring dance professionals and truly great teachers! Your ability to ignite enjoyment while developing a deeper understanding of technique and nuance in the art of dance is remarkable. It is amazing to watch and also experience how you motivate while personalizing instruction to fit the unique needs of your students, to say nothing of the endless patience you demonstrate! The BDC is definitely the place to learn and have fun. The BDC Team is very much appreciated!
