Dance classes at Born 2 Dance Studio cater to the nightclub and the ballroom alike, with more than 60 weekly lessons for adults and more than 40 for kids as young as 3 years old. Adult lessons are broken into three categories—dance fitness, performance, and technique and choreography—so students can better choose a class that fits their interests. Within those categories, styles covered range from belly dancing to hip-hop to ballroom to jazz. Kids also have myriad classes to choose from, including break dancing, Zumba, and bollywood. In addition to regular lessons, children can participate in recitals, enroll in dance-centic summer camps, or celebrate birthdays with a hip-hop dance session and party.

Since opening Dance Factory in 1976, Dennis Schroeder and his staff of instructors have taught more than 500,000 people how to cut a rug across the studio’s spacious, 3,500-square-foot cushioned ballroom floor. Many of the instructors are competitive dancers, and they use their expertise to teach a full range of traditional dance styles, including the bossa nova, tango, and samba. During both group and private lessons, they teach students of all levels how to perform in social settings—a skill they can flaunt at board meetings or during holiday balls and weekend dances. The staff also coaches bridal parties, and leads four-hour weekend workshops to delve into more complicated dance techniques.
From the sprung hardwood floors to the 19-foot ceilings, every inch of Forever Dancing's spacious studio is dedicated to dance.

The studio hosts classes for adults and children, along with fun-filled kids' camps, in which tykes can learn acrobatic tricks and get creative with hands-on arts and crafts.
