Ballroom Dance Day 2019
Based in Colorado, Ballroom Dance Day started in 2016 as a way to celebrate the joy of ballroom dancing. A unique activity with numerous health and social benefits; we wanted to provide the Denver community an opportunity to give ballroom dance a try for the 1st time, but to also help the experienced ballroom dancer to build on their skills.
Our event offers 4 beginner classes & 4 intermediate level classes the most popular ballroom dances: Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot & Quickstep all at a great price.
Think of it like a one day dance camp. Take one class, a couple, or all offered. Mix and match depending on your level for each dance to get the most benefit from each hour. We offer some fabulous instruction for all levels, and bring in wonderful instructors each year, check out this year's lineup below. Plus new this year mind body nutrition coach Phyllis Guy will be giving a free lecture during our snack break.
We welcome new faces and welcome back those returning students to this year's Ballroom Dance Day!
