Group Dance Class

Sway Dance is a thriving dance studio located in Albany Park (conveniently off the Irving Park and Kimball busses) that specializes in Latin, Ballroom and Swing dancing. We offer a variety of class types to meet a versatile range of needs and experience levels. We pride ourselves on providing flexible, supportive, and most of all affordable access to high quality dance instruction. 

If you’re tired of “sitting this one out” while everyone else hits the dance floor, let Sway Dance get you ready to boogie at your next office party, vacation, or night on the town. Our 4-week classes will prepare you for any number of social events or simply give you an arsenal of moves just in case you’re challenged to a dance-off. Because we don’t require you to have a partner, a group class is the perfect way to meet new people and learn how to dance in a fun, relaxing, and social environment.

Group Class - Latin, Ballroom Swing

At Sway Dance, we make taking group class easy, fun, and flexible. Our classes are continuously evolving and changing depending on interest, level and class size. Get much needed experience while dancing with several partners and getting individual attention from our instructors.  

Group classes are the best place to begin learning any particular style, as these classes are structured for beginners. Classes meet for one hour, 4 weeks in a row.  No experience required and no partner is needed. A four week class is $50 per person. Class date/time based on student interest and availability.  

If the times we choose don't work for you, we'd be glad to help you form your own class.  Only 6 people are needed to form a class.  Get a group of friends together and we'll make it happen!
