Academy Ballroom Atlanta’s troupe of instructors orchestrates informative boogies inside a 6,000-square-foot studio equipped with wooden floors, track lighting, and a disco ball. During private lessons, twosomes can shore up dance steps with visual cues from the panorama of mirrored walls, audible cues from the instructor’s one-on-one feedback, and olfactory cues from scratch-and-sniff step diagrams. Duos can perfect techniques across the course of 10 group lessons, learning steps for styles including salsa, waltz and cha-cha, tango and rumba, or swing and foxtrot in the company of other students. The calendar lists each session’s focus and timeslot–group classes listed as “ABDT”–helping students sample a variety of techniques or completely perfect a postdance victory dance.
Academy Ballroom Atlanta
Since 2006, Academy Ballroom Atlanta's instructors have helped competitive and social dancers two-step toward mastery of ballroom and Latin dance styles. Their classes range in style from the fiery moves of salsa to the elegant steps of the waltz to the boisterous footwork of swing, all of which can be scaled to suit varying abilities. During private lessons, the teachers' personalized attention helps develop each pupil's dance floor skills before they improve their patterns and techniques among peers at group classes. Those lessons culminate in group practice sessions, during which guests review their newfound moves while making an effort not to dip their partner into another dimension. Along with in-studio training, Academy Ballroom Atlanta hosts monthly semiformal dance parties, and its performance company, Atlanta Ballroom Dance Theater, wows crowds with shows—up to 90 minutes long—performed by professional and pro-am dancers.
