Group Lessons and Events

Visit our Square Store to pay online for classes and private lessons.

The lesson listing is updated about once a month, unless something unexpected happens. If you see less than a weeks worth of events, an update should be on it's way. Our typical schedule includes Friday Beginner Workshops, Line Dancing on 1st and 3rd Tuesdays, What's Next Classes and Workshops (not beginner) on Mondays, and (seasonally) 4-Hour Group Classes in Blacksburg on week nights.
