During one-hour group classes, a skilled instructor well-versed in an array of dance styles, such as the foxtrot and the quickstep, leads classes through steps and routines. During 45-minute private sessions, fledgling rug-cutters can work with their teacher to meet specific choreographic goals, such as learning the tango for a high-school reunion. A dance partner isn’t required for any of the studio’s classes; there are instructors available to pair up with solo participants. On Friday nights from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., students can apply learned dance techniques in fun, open parties. Click here to view the schedule.<p>
Champion Ballroom Academy
A childhood peppered with basketball, football, and volleyball couldn't keep Mary Murphy out of the ballroom after she was struck by the athleticism of the sport while watching a championship performance in her early twenties. She began to compete around the world, eventually slowing down enough to found Champion Ballroom Academy in 1990 and finally teaching there full-time in between stints on Fox's So You Think You Can Dance.
Mary has plucked like-minded instructors for her studio, some of whom created Core Rhythms, a Latin dance-based aerobics program. Many of the other teachers are competitive-dance champions or black belts in hula hoop. Aside from running a flourishing dance studio, Mary's palpable passion for the art form has also driven her to play a leading role in San Diego's Chance to Dance program, a curriculum that introduces school kids to the artistry and strength-building foundations of dance.
