Classes are held each week before our dances from 8:30pm to 9:30pm!
We have two levels of classes each week: Fundamental Topics and Extended Topics. So, whether you are joining us for the first time or trying to improve your technique we hope you will find the dance instruction you are looking for!
Our supplemental options include private lessons with our instructors and our intermediate plus practicum
House of Dope.

House of Dope is the space for you!

House of Dope meets monthly based on participants availability. To join the mailing list for House of Dope you will have to audition at one of our feedback dances which we host on the fifth Tuesdays of a month.
