Ballroom Dancing (Adult & Teen Couples)

If you enjoy music, you can learn to dance! Did you know that dancing helps improve your memory and other brain functions, like planning and organizing? Dancing also makes you happy; dancing lowers anxiety, increases self-esteem, and helps you meet new friends. Anyone can learn basic dance steps; no special talent is required.
