What is popular here?
It once was the Wild West, Tucson once was Mexico. It is no surprise that the the local night life is infused with the heat of Latin and Country dancing as hot as the sun here.
But that is not all. With local Swing, Ballroom and Tango clubs that meet 2-3 times a week. It is safe to say dancing with a partner, is what is popular.
Why do we dance?
Every culture, in every time period, since the dawn of time has used dance as a form of communication. Dance generates from a raw human desire of personal expression, social interaction and emotional connection. However, our modern lifestyles disconnect us, and we all know it.
Partner dancing (Country, Ballroom, Swing, Latin, etc) combines rhythmic mind and body motions with a classy discipline of social etiquette.
We are first and foremost, a team of professional dancers. We practice as hard as athletes, stay as humble as students and continue our education as aggressive as one would for a doctorate.
While laughing a TON along the way.
Are we the cheapest? Most certainly not, nor would we want to be. Are we the best value? Absolutely.
Even if we are not the least expensive company, you can be sure you will feel the value in more than just your lessons.
From the South East to the North West. From Tucson to Phoenix and beyond.
We work our lives around the best locations in the city for the success of our students dancing.
