Dance Education Program


We are all about dance education.

Whether you are a newcomer, beginner, or advanced dancer, we offer affordable ballroom dance instruction, monthly social dances and workshops focused on specific techniques. No contracts. No partner needed!

We have something whether you:

Have never danced before

Have danced but never had formal training

Are ready to focus on technique and additional steps

Want to learn a new dance style.



Our Classes


We hold regular classes throughout the week.

Newcomer/Beginner Classes.

If you have never danced before or would like to review the basics, our newcomer group classes are for you. Offered at our Fort Myers and Estero locations, these classes provide a solid foundation based on good technique for the dance style. You will also learn enough dance steps to be able to go out on the dance floor whether at a dance party, wedding or other venue.

Open Practice Time.

Practice is a key to developing skill and style in your dance routine. On Thursday afternoons we provide the large open ballroom dance floor and music you need for effective practice.


Monthly Dance Party.

Dance is a social activity! Once a month we have a party at a dance studio. Beginning with a featured lesson, its time to have fun and show off what you have learned. See the monthly calendar for dates and location.


Formal Dances.

Want a little elegance? February’s Lady in Red Dance (think Valentine’s Day) and December’s Black Tie Ball are our elegant events with formal dinner and dancing the night away.


Workshops.

Skill-based workshops or skill-set intensive sessions are perfect for working on specific moves, and allow for polishing of the move beyond the scope of usual classroom practice. Typically, a single afternoon, our workshops may focus on variations of a single movement (such as shadow position) or often overlooked aspects of dance such as musicality.


Youth Program Partnerships.

Southwest Florida USA Dance partners with the North Fort Myers Academy of the arts to offer ballroom dance instruction to youth dancers.
