We teach solid skills in Waltz, East-Coast Swing, Foxtrot, Blues and other dance styles that connect you to your partner and to the music while you're both having fun. You learn as you play!

or scroll down for other options.
Note: Some locations offer more beginning, intermediate or advanced classes. Please read the prerequisites on the Class Descriptions page, as classes build on knowledge previously learned.
Regular class fees are $65/class for a 6-week session. To register, here are your options:
New to dance or new to Dance for Joy? Not sure if this is for you? If you are a new student, you may try your first class session for 1/2 price, or 2 people for the price of one if you'd like to bring a friend. Or you may try the first night of the class only for just $5! See our Registration page.
Where are the classes? See locations at right for directions and parking.
What shoes and clothes do I wear? Clean, non-marking low heeled or flat soled shoes are best. All dance spaces have beautiful floors and we are committed to keeping them that way — please wipe off the bottom of your shoes before walking in. Wear clothes that you feel comfortable in — most people dress casually.
Missing classes? Going to miss a couple of classes due to vacation or work and know this before the class session begins? Class pro-rations are taken on a case-by-case basis. If you miss a class during the session, arrive a bit early the next week and we will catch you up. We also usually review the previous weeks material in the first part of class and review all material on the final day of class.

If you need to get up-to-speed for that upcoming wedding or class reunion, quickly improve specific skills, or don't see the right class for you, private lessons are the answer! E-mail Lilli Ann or call her at 206-264-5646 to find out more!
