"There are shortcuts to happiness and dancing is one of them."- Vicki Baum, 20th century
Few arts combine social interaction and physical expression quite like ballroom dancing. Be it the community, physical activity or simply the aesthetics that are relished by those who experience it, it is little wonder that paired dances have persisted across continents for centuries.
Students at Ravenswood are guided through the basic steps at their own pace, gradually building up to a state of confidence in which they can gracefully navigate the ballroom floor (without being stuck continually repeating the same three moves). In addition to practice time during class, dance students will also be given a chance to practice at special events held periodically at the Academy.
