Farley’s Ballroom fills with the rhythmic rush of fluttering feet during weekly group dance lessons and private instruction sessions. During six-week beginner courses, dancers can fly solo or flock together in group lessons for individuals or couples on Mondays from 7 p.m. to 7:50 p.m. Instructors draw from a rotating slate of styles that, like months on a bargain-bin calendar, change every three weeks, so participants will learn two distinct genres during each course period, including tango and rumba (November 7–December 12) or the waltz and cha-cha (December 19–January 23). For more intense tutelage, one-on-two private lessons instruct couples in ballroom, Latin, or swing dancing. Dance masters schedule private lessons on any day of the week, calibrating training intensity depending on dancers’ goals, prior experience, and ability to withstand getting served.
