New topics featured every month. Thursday Night's @ 7 pm

Hi, I'm Debbie Ramsey, a life long dancer, dance instructor and choreographer. - I am excited to be bringing a new dance program to the Raleigh and Research Triangle area. The goal of this program is to help you understand how movement technique works throughout all dance forms, and then teach you how to apply that technique to your personal dancing. Together, we will explore a number of different dance styles, while helping you build control and confidence that you can bring to the social or competitive dance floors. 

This new series spans 9 months, and is broken down into 4 week units. Each unit will explore different topics and styles of dance. This nine month training series is open to west coast swing and serious social dancers with at least 6-12 months of dance experience. It will be challenging, and a fun program for those dancers who do the work necessary to see the results they desire.

You can choose to attend a single (4 week) series, or the entire nine month series. We allow an individual to "drop-in" for a single class, only on the first night of a new monthly class series ($15). The real benefits come from attending the entire program. By experiencing different dance styles, over the course of time, you end up challenging yourself to be that better, well rounded dancer you see and admire on the dance floor.
