Group Classes

Ballroom Central Pittsburgh—Group Ballroom Classes

At Ballroom Central Pittsburgh, we offer multiple Ballroom and Latin dance classes that will match your skill level, from beginner through advanced, from social dancer through competitive dancer.

Group ballroom classes at Ballroom Central Pittsburgh are 60 minutes long. We have found that anything less than 1 hour does not adequately give the student enough time to absorb the information, and with longer class times, the student does not always retain the information. Four group classes each month comprise that monthly session. Each session has it's own skill level includes Beginner, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, and Advanced.

At Ballroom Central Pittsburgh, we limit our class size. This gives us more time to focus on each student. All of our classes are for couples, but we will try to pair up singles that are interested. There is no partner changing during our classes. The person you came with will be the person you dance with!

Because of our limited class size, we do not accept walk-ins. Students must call or email us ahead of the first scheduled class to reserve their spot within that class.

Our raised hardwood floor is leg and foot-friendly! So dance in comfort! At Ballroom Central Pittsburgh, your group class is dedicated to the group. During your lesson, we won't have anyone else teaching on the floor, so group class students have exclusive use of the floor and music without distractions. This greatly facilitates the learning of the dances.

A typical session structure is:

  • Week 1: new figures are taught
  • Weeks 2 & 3: technique is taught
  • Week 4: figures and technique are solidified

Each group class typically focuses on one Standard and one Latin dance, which will be taught for the duration of the 4-week session. Standard dances include Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot, and Quickstep. Latin Dances include Cha-Cha, Samba, Rumba, Paso Doble, and Jive (Swing).

We have been dancing, competing, and teaching for over 20 years. Our experience speaks for itself.

We are conveniently located in the South Hills, and parking is free. Please see our calendar for current Ballroom Central Pittsburgh group class sessions. Call or email us at (412) 833-8182,, to reserve your spot at Ballroom Central Pittsburgh!
