Sunday Afternoon Classes

TWO GROUP CLASS SESSIONS ARE OFFERED ON SUNDAY AFTERNOONS.  We have two 1 ½ hour group lessons offered, which focus on a dance or combination of dances.  These group sessions are limited to seven (7) couples per session and require a ten-week commitment.  A DVD for each course is offered, which allows you to remember the movements taught that week and which provide a constant source of review in the future.  There are other group sessions offered throughout the week.  To register, please contact us at 972-231-7433 or e-mail us at pj.dancetique@sbcglobal.netSee our Calendar  for styles being offered in these Sunday sessions.

Classes During the Week (Note: No Group Classes During The Week At This Time)

ADDITIONAL GROUP CLASSES IN RHYTHM (LATIN) AND STANDARD DANCES ARE OFFERED THROUGH-OUT THE WEEK.  Each Group Program series meets once a week for 5 consecutive weeks (5 classes) and a different dance is studied in depth per 5 week series.  Students must sign up for the whole 5 week series.  Attendance is limited.  Classes do close, so you are encouraged to reserve your place in class for the specific dance.  Partners are not required; students will rotate.
