Savannah Ballroom Dance Studios’ spirited instructors school students in a calorie-burning curriculum that covers styles such as salsa, waltz, and tango. Opt for one-on-one lessons, or grab two Groupons and a willing friend and spend three 25-minute lessons getting a crash course in the basics of boogie. Group classes train rug-cutters in American and international dance styles, with Tuesday night’s FUNdamentals classes focusing on beginners' moves and Wednesday’s advanced classes covering more difficult shakes and twirls. Dance parties bring students together for a night of practicing newly honed swing skills and rehearsing asking a dust mop to dance. Check the online calendar for a list of class times and dates.
Savannah Ballroom Dance Studio
Alonzo Boschulte remembers his own stage fright when he guides beginning students onto the dance floor. With years of training, he grew from an amateur to a certified ballroom teacher and professional competitor registered with the National Dance Council. At Savannah Ballroom Dance Studio, he strives to echo this journey by transforming total novices into confident twirlers.
Lessons in more than 15 varieties of Latin and ballroom dance occupy the school's floor space. With pupils ranging in age from 6 to older than 80, the instructors stress the importance of mixing private, group, and practice classes to expose everyone to different dance scenarios. They also laud the fitness benefits of learning to dance, which hones one's sense of rhythm and muscular strength more safely than being at the bottom of a vertical conga line.
