Voted into the Best of Austin in 2008 by readers of the Austin Chronicle, Go Dance earns its praise with talented dance instructors who lead workshops atop floating wood floors in an 8,700-square-foot studio. During each wedding workshop, up to 20 couples head into one of four spacious ballrooms where danceologists help to plan first dances or midvow dance-offs. Instructors Amanda and James spend 90 minutes teaching pupils stylish entrance and exit techniques as well as two popular dances adaptable to most heartwarming ballads. Go Dance recommends couples come dressed in comfortable attire, but in the shoes or roller skates they plan on wearing during their reception.
"Anyone can learn to dance," declares Go Dance owner Mylie Alrich. And she's not the only one who thinks so—throngs of students flock to the studio for the large selection of easy-to-follow classes led by a team of more than 35 seasoned instructors. In addition to student testimonials, the readers of the Austin Chronicle crowned Go Dance for having the "Best Dance Classes" for four years in a row.
Much of these hard-earned accolades stem from the instructors' ability to teach ballroom, salsa, swing, country, and other styles while, at the same time, cultivating a welcoming vibe in which students can meet new friends and feel like they're part of a community. After tackling a variety of moves, students can show them off during weekly social and Newcomer Nights at the North Austin or South Austin locations.
