Drawing on backgrounds that include stints in the Vanderbilt Dance Program and stage-time alongside Debby Boone in Mississippi Love, the instructors at We Dance Nashville two-step students toward mastery of styles such as ballroom, Latin, salsa, and swing. Teachers toe-heel alongside students in private lessons tailored to their new partner’s light-tripping goals, and they shuffle loads of beginners toward dancing proficiency in group classes, such as ballroom or hip-hop for kids and adults. During wedding classes, engaged couples learn simple steps or intricate choreography to dazzle guests at their reception or sneakily waltz out of the judge’s chambers after eloping. Augmenting the regular schedule, We Dance Nashville hosts frequent parties where 30-minute lessons precede 90 minutes of open dancing, or Theme Fitness, which incorporates choreography from hip-hop and Latin ballroom into a high-energy workout set to music.
