No matter what dance level you’re at, whether you’ve never danced before or you’ve danced for years, we have the best programs for Indianapolis Ballroom. We have seven different programs depending on what level you come to us at.
If you’ve never danced before, our introductory program is designed for you to sample a variety of dances. Whether you plan on dancing at any of the ballrooms in Indianapolis, at a club, or just in out studios, the introductory program is where we find out what you like, introduce you to the basics, and develop a continuing program based on your specific wants and needs.
General Variety Program
This program is designed to introduce you to the first few patterns of the dances you will likely use immediately so that you will be prepared to begin dancing to your favorite music and at your favorite venues. The focus on these lessons will be foot position, lead/follow, and rhythm/timing. Most of our students find this program meets immediate needs and creates a good foundation for continuing students.
When it comes to Indianapolis Ballroom, this is the program for beginner students to build on the foundation laid in the General Variety Program. Many of our students say that they’d like to dance like the people on Dancing With The Stars or they come to us with any number of other goals for their dancing. Associate Bronze is the first leg of the yellow brick road to becoming the type of dancer they’d like to be.
Full Bronze Program
When a student completes our Full Bronze program they are competent social dancers. They’ll feel comfortable dancing to a vast majority of music played. They gentleman will be able to lead most ladies and the ladies follow most men. There is a noticeable difference between the posture of a Full Bronze Dancer and how they were prior to dancing. They carry themselves with pride and self-confidence on the dance floor and they’ve earned it. This would be likened to earning an Undergrad in ballroom.
Our Silver students are on their way to completing the highest level of social dance. Many steps you’ve seen on shows like Dancing With The Stars and So You Think You Can Dance are Silver level steps. Upon completing this level of dance, you won’t just be competent, you’ll be turning heads! You’ll be able to truly move around any of the Ballrooms in Indianapolis and look great doing it. Silver would be likened to earning a Master’s in ballroom.
Gold is the crème-de-la-crème of ballroom dancing. This is for dancers who are interested in exhibitions, performances, or competition. You’ll focus on an advanced level of styling, technique, expression, and Choreography. After completing Gold you are part of an elite group of dancers. Gold would be likened to earning a Doctorate in Ballroom.
We also understand that there are many events in a person’s life that warrants an interest in dancing. Cruises, Weddings, Vacations, Formal events (like prom, class reunions, etc), and many more are common reasons why students come into our school. We want to prepare you for what you want. Not just for ballrooms in Indianapolis, but for your first dance as a married couple, for dancing Salsa in the Caribbean, or to show off to your friends at any event that offers dancing.
