Couple’s Dance Classes in 2014!

You have been thinking about learning to dance, but are just not sure how to get started or which type of dancing you would like to learn. To be able to dance at any social occasion, your best bet is social ballroom dances like the Salsa, Country Two Step or the Swing. Social dance lessons will get you ready for those upcoming holiday parties, weddings and even nights out around town.  The most efficient way to learn to dance is with private dance lessons, so that you can receive one-on-one dance lessons with your instructor. However, if you have a tight schedule or maybe you’re not sure which type of dances you want to learn and would like to try a variety, then you may want to consider taking group dance classes.


If you live in the Phoenix East Valley area, beginning in January 2014, couples group dance classes are returning to Dance FX Studios in Mesa, Arizona after a short hiatus for the holidays! We have been teaching group dance classes for years and this time will be offering a variety of weekly, drop-in classes for beginners.  From Country to Salsa to Jitterbug, these 45 minute couples classes will be held Monday – Thursday evenings at 7:00. What’s great about this is that you don’t have to commit to a series of classes. Whatever your schedule allows, just come on in and join in the fun!


Group dance classes are an easy, affordable way to begin to learn some of the basics of whichever dance you choose. As the leading social dance studio for adults in Arizona, you have the chance to learn dance steps that you can use in any social dance situation. We will provide you with the tools needed to dance in the real world. And, since each class is held just once a week, it’s an ideal way to fit dancing into your busy life.


For some, focusing on a specific dance just once a week within a group may be better suited to their goals. However, if you can’t decide which dance to attempt first for only $15 per couple, per class, why not try a variety? Maybe one week, try the Salsa, the following week, give the Country Two Step a shot! Try a couple of different dances each week- whatever works best for you and your partner! Learning several dances will allow you to be able to dance to a variety of music, so you become a more well-rounded dancer. This way, you won’t be limited to just one type of dancing and will be ready for almost anything!


At Dance FX Studios, group dance classes for adults are an excellent way for couples to meet new people and explore new dance styles. Who knows- you may even make friends with other couples and all go out dancing together!  It is also a perfect way for you and your partner to spend some time together each week learning a new interest.  With both of your schedules being so busy every week, it may be hard to find the time for the two of you to just get away from it all and have a good time. What a perfect opportunity to reconnect with each other! Wouldn’t it be nice to spend some time together doing something that is so beneficial and acquiring skills you will use anywhere?


So, grab a partner and come join other Phoenix couples in Dance FX Studios Group Dance Classes for a fun-filled night of dancing! See you in 2014!

Get Social with Dance Lessons for Adults in Mesa, Arizona

There are short-cuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them. -Vicki Baum

You’re starting to get in a rut. You want something fun, different, and exciting to do for a night out. Your schedule is so busy that maybe you need something to do just a couple times a month to start. Tired of the same old routine- dinner, movies and bedtime? Maybe you and your friends need to change or add to your current workout habits. Do something a little out of the ordinary to stay in shape rather than hitting those weights or jumping into a spinning class and give dance lessons a try!
Have you thought about trying a beginners swing or salsa dance class for fun and exercise? The physical aspects of dancing are a great benefit. Have you been thinking that you’d like to make some changes to your usual fitness routine? How about burning calories and avoiding the gym by dancing? Why do things the traditional way when social dancing is a more pleasurable and exciting way to get into shape? Dancing for one hour can burn anywhere from 300-450 calories and you will be having a fantastic time while doing so! And, if that wasn’t enough, dancing also increases your flexibility, strength, and endurance.

Social dancing also allows you the freedom to relax, de-stress, and just let yourself go while learning a new hobby and getting fit. Dance lessons here in Arizona in the ever-popular Country two step, for example, provide the perfect opportunity to have fun with friends or your partner and enjoy life together, away from all the usual day to day worries and concerns.
Maybe you would like to meet some new people and make new friends. Social dancing is an excellent way to get to know others without a lot of pressure. It provides a wonderful way for people to become socially acquainted- especially in group dance classes or dance parties. Social dancing can also increase self-confidence and build social skills. And through dancing, a shared sense of community encourages long-lasting connections.
So, are you ready to try something new? Maybe you don’t have a lot of time to commit to your new hobby or maybe you just want to see what social dancing in Arizona is all about. You may want to consider attending a swing dance party or Country night out. Dance FX Studios in Mesa, Arizona is the perfect place to go for dance events in Phoenix as well as for private and group dance lessons! Wouldn’t it be nice to experience your first time out dancing with the comfort of instructors and fellow dance students by your side? With our Night’s Out around Phoenix, you will learn to navigate around a crowded dance floor and enjoy social dancing with new friends and familiar faces as you venture out into the real world of dancing.
Come on out and join Dance FX Studios’ staff and students at local Country and Latin dancing venues around the Phoenix area for an evening of dancing and entertainment! The Dance FX Studios’ instructors will provide you with some excellent dance pointers at an actual venue where the music and other dancers are outside the studio environment. You will learn how to be strategic with your dance moves in a real-world situation so you can be prepared for any occasion.
A Night Out evening with the Dance FX Studios’ staff includes a group dance class, your first drink at the venue, and two hours of dancing with Dance FX Studios’ instructors and fellow students. Discover how enjoyable it is to go social dancing with us!
What an amazing opportunity to see what dancing is all about and to hang out with new and old friends. These events take place a couple of times a month- one for Country dancing and one for Latin dancing. For more information and frequently asked questions, read about our Night’s Out. You can also pre-register in order to reserve a space and save $10!
In addition to our Nights Out, we also have themed Dance Parties with live music at the studio. If you have ever considered how wonderful it would be to learn to swing dance or dance the Argentine tango, you can find out at Dance FX Studios. Maybe Country or Latin is more your style. Not a problem, we have events for  those styles of dance as well. Similar to the Nights Out, we begin our parties with a mini group class and from there, it’s up to you to mix, mingle, and dance with others who are also learning. Maybe you just want a chance to dance with your partner, that’s OK too. And, if you’re feeling a little insecure about dancing or you don’t have a partner, no worries, the Dance FX instructors will be there to help and guide you on the dance floor. With live music, refreshments, and dancing, Dance FX Studios provides a venue experience but in the comfort of our studio. We welcome you to bring friends or family members with you- the more the merrier!

Our next Dance Party will be a Country theme and will be held at the Dance FX Studios in the Phoenix East Valley on July 13th, from 8:00-11:00 pm with Two-bit Shotgun providing great live music. What a terrific way to spend a Saturday night! To pre-register for this event and to check out some of our videos from previous Dance Parties, please go to our website.
