Students at 3rd Street Dance shimmy and shake across the school's five hardwood-floored studios during lessons that help adults master the basics of social dancing. Dancers can jump into three different levels of salsa to hone progressive and side steps, or drop in on a dance workout to burn calories to the Latin rhythms of Salsa Blast and Zumba sessions. During ballroom dance classes, pupils need not bring their own partners to foxtrot to big band tunes, sway to buoyant waltzes, or dance the history of the Cold War. Fleet feet can conquer more dance-floor territory in private lessons, which promise a wealth of instructor attention in a wide range of specialty dance styles from hip hop to cha-cha to the minimalistic cha.
Natural light streams into the school's five air-conditioned dance studios, where mirrors stretch from wall to wall so that students can observe their form and make sure they're not upside down. Check the schedule for an up-to-date listing of class times.
3rd Street Dance
A 30-year old institution situated in bustling West Hollywood, 3rd Street Dance rolls out a fleet of private and group lessons from its packed schedule that garnered the title of Best Ballroom-Dance Studio in 2009 from LA Weekly. Students study styles such as salsa, ballroom, and swing during 55-minute group and private lessons, where they put their new skills to use in one of five naturally lit studio spaces accented with sprung hardwood floors and wall-to-wall mirrors. Small class sizes ensure that fledgling twirlers receive individual attention from friendly, handpicked instructors and lessen the chances of tangoing with unresponsive walls. 3rd Street Dance's rentable spaces were the home studio of Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance for four years, and they remain a go-to spot for wedding-dance practice.
