Avant Garde Ballroom
A sea of spinning and twirling bodies can be seen through the floor-to-ceiling windows that surround Avant Garde's dancing complex. But the shear size of the studio is not clear until you enter. Inside, more than 5,000 square feet of danceable space is spread across three dance floors, each equipped with floating floor material that helps prevent knee and back pain. These specialized floors are much appreciated by the studio's clients, who can be found shimmying and shaking during group, private, and workshop lessons.
More than 30 instructors lead these classes, providing ample attention to students of all levels as they learn various dance styles, from ballroom and latin to West Coast swing. Praised for their positive attitudes by OC Weekly, each teacher is knowledgeable in his or her dance specialty, including teaching fiancés wedding dances and children how to simultaneously chew gum and do The Hustle. Students can also take advantage of the studio's Strictly Ballroom Dance Apparel Boutique stocked with dance shoes and nightclub attire.
