The experienced instructors at Crystal Ballroom Dance Studio help students liberate inner rhythms via a rotating selection of dance styles, including salsa, swing, rumba, waltz, foxtrot, cha-cha and tango. Piloted by graceful tutors, the 45-minute group classes cater to first-time dancers by introducing essential ballroom skills such as basic routines, artful dips, and when to use turn signals to safely trade partners. A lead teacher keeps the session running smoothly, guiding the class while other staff members circulate and offer individual help. Each week, students may learn how to synchronize shimmying hips and shoulders with a cha-cha lesson, practice swing moves, or determine if a rose smells as sweet if called another name through the clenched teeth of a tango partner.
Crystal Ballroom Dance Studio
At her first ballroom-dance lesson, DeeLynn Fields learned, "If you can spell, you can dance." Working through tango steps, she stopped and unpacked t-a-n-g-o. By seeing the word for its individual parts, she reasoned that she could do the same with the dance. Soon after mastering each step, Fields felt them flow together, and a smile bloomed across her face.
That moment—when a student begins to grasp a dance and cracks a smirk—is what Fields lives for and now endeavors to cultivate at Crystal Ballroom Dance Studio. She and her fellow instructors teach beginning and intermediate-level dancers both smooth and Latin forms of ballroom dance, including tango, foxtrot, and other dance forms named after military lingo, and the team's expertise has garnered multiple awards, including a Best of Silicon Valley award from San Jose Mercury News in 2013 and 2015.
