During drop-in classes, instructors teach dances such as the foxtrot, waltz, and double shuffle. After class, dancers can also attend practice parties and meet new people. From 8 p.m. until midnight, attendees hone dance styles such as ballroom, Latin, and swing. Drop-in classes change every week. See the current class calendar here.
After four years of tending to the bees on his family's farm, Gerald Côté decided to turn his lifelong passion for dance into a career. He began trotting across the globe—from Nashville, Tennessee, to Stockholm, Sweden—to participate in dance competitions, and he attained his first UCWDC world title in 2006. That same year, Gerald combined his impressive dance resumé with his business administration degree and opened a freelance dance-instruction company called DancEnergy. After a successful first few years of offering on-site lessons and winning impromptu dance-offs, Gerald renovated a massive 8,200-square-foot warehouse into the company's official studio.
Since converting the warehouse in 2009, Gerald has assembled a talented team of dance instructors who specialize in salsa, ballroom, Latin, swing, and country. Students of all skill levels may sign up for 6- or 12-week group classes or just come by on a whim for Friday-night drop-in classes and practice parties.
DancEnergy's studio houses three separate ballrooms to accommodate multiple classes at once, as well as changing rooms where pupils can garb themselves with required non-rubber shoes and optional sequined gloves.
