Wedding Dance Lessons, First Dance Instruction and Social Dance Lessons

Yes, we can teach you how to waltz, foxtrot, and tango like you’re a champion, but you can leave any rhinestones and stuffy attitudes at home. We believe that contests are for pie eating and butter sculpting, which is why you won’t find any judges and trophies here. We’re a group of individuals with heart and a passion for movement, music, and connection, and that’s what makes us the top-rated wedding, first dance and social dance studio in Chicago.

Wedding Dance Lessons | First Dance Lessons

 We’re the top-rated wedding dance and first dance studio in Chicago. Yeah, a lot of other places claim the same, but we’ve got all the trophies from the Wedding Dance Council of America! Just kidding ... that organization doesn’t exist. From what we can tell, the only way to know you’re the best is to have people say you are on sites like The Knot and Yelp. We have way more five star reviews than anyone else. You do the math.

Dance Lessons We Offer

While we've become known for wedding and first dance lessons, we're experts in a wide variety of dance styles. 

Wedding Dance Lessons

Wedding dance lesson are for anyone - engaged couples, parents, wedding guests - who are interested in learning to dance during wedding receptions. These lessons differ from first dance lessons in that they're focused on preparing for social dancing, not performing a first dance.

First Dance Lessons

First dance lessons are private lessons designed for engaged couples who need a little help preparing for the first dance at their wedding reception. These lessons focus on each specific couple's needs as related to their skill level, first dance song and vision for their first dance. 

Swing Dance Lessons

Swing is one of the of the most versatile social dances. Swing got its start in Harlem in the 1920s with the beginning of jazz music, and has continuously developed since then. We now have countless different styles of swing! At Ballroom Dance Chicago we teach about 10 swing variations. 


Salsa Dance Lessons

Salsa has been the most popular dance at Ballroom Dance Chicago since our inception. We teach a variety of styles and start on both the "1" and the "2," but we're mainly an "on 1" school. We have both group and private salsa lessons.

Ballroom Dance Lessons

Foxtrot, Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz and Rumba are the focus in our ballroom dance curriculum. We're different than other studios in that we also teach variations of these styles of dance that fit with most modern music. 

Group Dance Classes

Group dance classes at Ballroom Dance Chicago are for the social dancer looking for a little more skill and an opportunity to socialize. Group classes are perfect for you if you're a casual learner with meandering goals.
