Dance classes for beginners

New class series begins July 11

Every quarter we have a class geared toward beginner dancers. This summer’s class series will begin on July 11, and run for 8 weeks.

After the 8 week series, students are welcome to continue dancing with any of our mixed level classes, or to take the beginner classes again.

The beginner class, taught by our enthusiastic and popular teacher, Jeanne Moody, covers the basics of moving to the music and footwork for dancing. Jeanne also teaches standard formations and patterns that comprise every dance we do, so that students can be comfortable with unfamiliar dances.

Class Details:


Tuesday night from 7:30 to 9:30, July 11 to August 29.


The Growing Place Montessori, 13242 Pomerado Road, Poway, CA 92064

First class is free, and the 8 week series costs $50. If you sign up on the first night, it’s $5 off!


Anyone is welcome (bring a friend!) and a partner is not required.

What to wear: 

Comfortable shoes and clothes you can move in. A kilt is not required. Ladies often like to wear a skirt.


Please wear soft-soled shoes, preferably without heels. Flip-flops or loose sandals, and stiff, ballroom dance style shoes are not a good idea. We wear Scottish Ghillies, but if you have dance shoes (ballet or jazz shoes) you can use those as well. You don’t need to buy anything special to start out with, but if you like our dancing (and we hope you will!) you’ll eventually want to invest in some nice shoes. You can find information about dance shoes here:
