Fall Beginner Series starts September 11 in Balboa Park

New class series begins September 11

Every quarter we have a class geared toward beginner dancers. This fall class series will begin on September 11, and run for 8 weeks.

After the 8 week series, the Monday class continues on a week-by-week basis until the Holidays and beyond, when we’ll have another beginner series in the Spring. Students are also 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:


Monday night from 7:30 to 9:30, September 11 to October 30.


Balboa Park, Casa Del Prado, room 203

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:
