GROUP COURSES (the next session begins the week of Monday, Nov 26)
Group lessons run in 4-week sessions and are an excellent introduction to dances of all types and the social experience of partner dancing. They allow you to concentrate on a single dance or try out a number of different styles under the direction of our superb professional staff and in a congenial mix of students of all ages.
Dance Manhattan offers the largest number of group classes in NYC, in all dance styles and levels. Group classes constantly rotate partners, giving students the opportunity to practice their steps with others throughout the class. This accomplishes two things- you get used to dancing with different partners, honing your skills for the social dance scene, and you get the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends here at Dance Manhattan.
We also offer COUPLES ONLY classes for those who do not want to rotate and prefer to dance exclusively with their partner. Check our GROUP COURSE schedule for our terrific line-up of FRIDAY "DATE NIGHT" COUPLES ONLY classes and ask our administrators about the tremendous multi-class discount that we offer!

You may share your lessons with a partner (one leader, one follower) at no additional fee!
