Lessons & Classes

Private Lessons

A private lesson is ideal for singles or couples who want individual attention from an instructor. Each private lesson is 45 minutes and tailored to fit your needs and dancing goals. The personalized instruction allows you to work at your own pace and only on dances you have an interest in. Private lessons are the backbone of your dancing and ensure the most rapid and thorough learning process. Pay-as-you-go, package discounts, and student discounts are also available, with a current student ID or registration card.

Semi-Private Lessons

A semi-private lesson is for groups that want to learn to dance together but also want the direct attention of an instructor.  Each semi-private lesson is 60 minutes and by appointment only. We can accommodate groups of up to 12 people, and whenever possible, suggest you organize your group in such a way that everyone has a partner to dance with.

Group Classes

Group classes are a fun way to develop your skills in a social setting. They are ideal for learning the fundamentals of specific dance styles and general techniques related to ballroom dancing.  Group classes are offered in a developmental series. They are progressive and an effective way to learn basic dance patterns and rhythms.

Dancesport

Dancesport is the name given to competitive ballroom dancing.  If you dream of being on “Dancing with the Stars”, this may be the avenue for you.  Should you choose to compete, your instructor will guide you every step of the way – through training, choreography, costuming, and ultimately, performance.  The thrill of competition is the fastest way to improve your dancing skills.  City Ballroom attends several dancesport competitions a year, including one held right here in Lancaster!

Testimonials

  • “We finished our wedding first dance routine well ahead of schedule which gave us plenty of time to clean up some finer points such as hand placement and where to look when holding a position.  We have two different lifts and a dip in our approximately 2min routine and a whole lot of turns!”

    Christina Nguyen / Lebanon

  • “When the Corsair Blue Jazz Orchestra arrived at the Lancaster Marriott to perform for the 2015 Veritas spring formal we were told that a dance instructor would start off the night with a lesson. Once out on the dance floor, in about fifteen minutes Becca was able to communicate to the crowd of three hundred seeing them smiling and having a great timeThere is no doubt in my mind that her instruction and support, imparted with good humor, made the dancers more comfortable and the event more successful for the organizers and for our band. We are looking forward to working with Becca again!”

    Lon Prosser, Music Director, Corsair Blue Jazz Orchestra / Lancaster

  • “Becca is a dancing bundle of joy!  Her very outgoing attitude and honesty make easy what could be a very awkward time.  With Becca, she is fun and easy to be around and we still kept on point with the task at hand.  My fiancé has zero rhythm and no dance background but found it easy to keep up with Becca.”

    Christina Nguyen / Lebanon

  • “We’ve had the privilege and pleasure of working with Becca over the past several years. Her consistently upbeat demeanor and always positive, innovatively creative and empathetic approach to teaching has given us a truly memorable and relaxed learning experience!”

    Ann & Bill Unwin / York

  • “Becca not only provided refresher lessons for me, but gave me more advanced moves that build on the basic moves I relearned. Becca is very enthusiastic and passionate about dance; every lesson I not only learn dance steps, but I learn how to feel the music I am dancing to.”

  • “I’ve been taking dance lessons from Rebecca for several years now, progressing at my own pace. She’s wonderful, fun, friendly, patient, and knowledgeable. For me, learning ballroom dancing equals City Ballroom.”

  • “I was looking for dance classes for my 7 and 8 year old daughters other than the traditional ballet, tap and jazz. As a social dancer and an amateur ballroom dancer, I experience the joy and benefits of dancing into adulthood.  I want the same for my girls, so youth ballroom dance lessons were a natural choice. I’m delighted to have found Becca and City Ballroom. Becca makes lessons fun and engaging, while kids learn the basics of the main smooth and rhythm dances.”
