The Ballroom Dance Center has been teaching Augusta to dance since 1992, which makes it the longest continuously operating ballroom dance studio in the CSRA. Dance Smart at The Ballroom Dance Center!
We continue a long tradition of fun social dances for our students. The perfect learning triad of group and private lessons is completed by attending parties! That saying “Practice makes perfect!” is true, especially within a warm, hospitable environment where the total beginner to the advanced dancer is welcomed. Also open to the public, all dancers will enjoy putting to use what they learn on their lessons in a social setting.
Our dances are offered once a month, usually on the Fourth Friday, at the studio. Occasionally, we have a few performance numbers featuring our students. The staff and instructors circulate to invite guests to dance and even show them a new step or two. A helpful and entertaining lesson is offered at the beginning of each dance. At some dances, the dance card system is used where pre-registered students get to dance with the teachers on a pre-assigned rotation for the first part of the dance. The dance is from 7:00 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. Admission to our dance parties is $15 and $20 to our themed balls. The Thankful Ball and New Year’s Eve Ball include a catered meal. The New Year’s Eve Ball also includes live music featuring All That Jazz. Admission to the Thankful Ball is $59 and admission to the New Year’s Eve Ball is $99.
