who only teach what makes their souls come alive. 


We believe that getting stronger in our mind and bodies begins with the passion in our souls to become our personal best. That’s why we built a team of instructors who get excited when they see people grow, get better, and push past excuses. Imagine being taught by instructors that are inspired to get out of bed in the morning to do what they love, teaching people like you. Imagine working with a coach that is fulfilment from seeing you become your best. That’s our district team. You will get the best instruction so you can reach your best. 

WE BUILT A TEAM OF ELITE PRO teachers 

As you learn the common language between dances, you will grow in your musicality and your dance technique, and you will be able to bring common techniques into your favorite dances.

YOUR CONFIDENCE WILL GROW

We are determined to pair you with the instructor that is the perfect fit for your learning style and dance needs! We've developed 3 distinct instructor categories that help describe where our instructors focus their passions. These categories do not relate to their expertise, but instead what type of student they prefer to foster. 

WE ARE DETERMINED

These instructors are your new best friends! Growers live to help new dancers cross the sometimes terrifying bridge to enjoying movement! They are some of the kindest, most welcoming people you'll ever meet and are sure to make you feel right at home! Their teaching style is patient and easy to understand, and their private lesson rates are more accessible.
