The class is open to Novice dancers wishing to improve the basics in lead/follow as well as technique.

What is USA Dance?
USA Dance is a national, non-profit, charitable, educational organization, which is dedicated to the promotion of amateur ballroom dancing for social dancers, competitors, and the general public.
Our local Greater Atlanta Chapter coordinates ballroom dance information and promotes dance education as well as dance activities in the Atlanta area. The primary social activity provided by this chapter is a monthly dance party that includes a one-hour instruction of a ballroom dance, two and a half hours of dancing to ballroom music played by a deejay, hors d'oeuvres, and door prizes. Four of these dance parties have a seasonal theme and all of them offer a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Follow us on Facebook for more news, pictures and videos.
The Greater Atlanta USA Dance Chapters' dance is held on the "second Saturday" of each month. Our dances are dressy casual (no jeans, tank tops, sneakers) and meant as a place for you to socialize and practice your dance steps. All dances are open to singles as well as couples. Dancers of all dance levels are welcome from beginner to advanced as we strive to offer a friendly atmosphere for all and to make you feel welcomed. Our talented DJ plays a variety of music focusing on ballroom and latin, but with ample West Coast Swing, Nightclub Two, and even an occasional Polka or Texas Two Step. We are here to have fun and enjoy a wide varity of dances. A one hour group lesson is offered prior to the dance each month at no additional charge.
