Now for a dance party UPDATE! :) What we are able to offer for dance parties has changed a lot in the last month, so I want to take this space to let you know what's going on!
Btw, none of our dances require masks at this point.
The only dance still requiring Pre-Registration is the Saturday Partner Party at 6pm.
Right now we are trying out a few different options for Friday and Saturday Nights to see what works for everyone! My biggest desire is that we have parties you don't want to leave and can't wait to attend again the next time! Please let us know if you have any ideas and we will take them into consideration as we plan our programming going forward! We are planning as the parties grow to add an advanced group class at the same time as the Beginner friendly group class, and potentially expanding the dances (either earlier or later).
For now here's what's offered...
FRIDAYS AT THE CRYSTAL BALLROOM
West Coast Swing Night
On the 1st Friday of the month, we offer a 7:45pm Beginner Friendly Group Class and then offer a party from 8:30pm-10:00pm. Our plan is to alternate DJ Toni Carroll & DJ Jerry Bean. Toni Carroll will be DJing July! The Crystal Ballroom Dance Center Staff is there to keep everyone dancing.
Ballroom Dance Nights
On the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month we offer a 7:45pm Beginner Friendly Group Class followed by a Ballroom Dance Party with The Crystal Ballroom Staff in attendance to keep everyone dancing from 8:30pm-10:00pm. This dance is steadily growing and is a great way to get out and practice everything you're learning in your lessons!
Northside Latin Night
On the 3rd Friday of the month we offer Latin dancing, including Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, and Kizomba. There is a group class beforehand that is beginner friendly at 7:45pm, then the dance is from 8:30-Midnight.
Our Latin instructor Brittany is present to keep everyone dancing!
SATURDAYS AT THE CRYSTAL BALLROOM
6pm Saturdays - Partner Party (Limited Space, must Pre-Register)
Our 6pm Party still gives you a chance to be on the floor with limited people, and limited partners. We are limiting this dance to 12 couples. Each couple has their own table and is able to social distance from those around them. This dance is still Pre-Registration Required since there is limited space. Also, if you are interested in Renting an Instructor to dance with, we still offer this at 6pm on Saturday!
8pm Saturday - Open Ballroom Dance Party
This is our biggest and best dance of the week! We are not limiting numbers, all of The Crystal Ballroom Staff is there to keep you dancing and include you in our lively community, and we are mixing partners non-stop. Our regular DJ is David, we include a variety of partner dances and even take limited requests! Join us as this dance continues to grow and is the hottest place to be on Saturday night!

Top 6 Reasons People Love Partner Dancing!
Reason #6: Physicality & Coordination Creates Confidence!
Imagine walking into a room, holding yourself in impeccable posture, taking large and in charge strides, stopping on a dime to turn and greet the CEO of your company. Imagine smoothly gliding from one step to another with grace and ease while gracefully holding yourself vertical and confident! Imagine strutting rhythmically into the room modeling an outfit that stops everyone in their tracks, and sets you apart from the crowd while wearing a smile and the glow of self-confidence. Dancing can help you find the power, grace, and confidence to embrace the REAL, CONFIDENT you!
Reason #5: It's Wedding Season!
Who wants to go to a wedding and dance when you feel like you have 2 left feet and need liquid courage to conquer your fears? We make dancing easy and fun, even after a few lessons you can show up and impress others with your new moves! Why go to another wedding where you dread the DJ opening up the dancefloor, when you can confidently walk onto the floor with an idea of where to start, and how to move your body!? Let us help you gain confidence & comfort for the upcoming events in your summer!
Reason #4: Fitness through dancing!
Most people don't expect their first dance lesson to be much of a physical activity, and they are surprised when they're sweating on the first day. Who said physical fitness had to be boring and repetitive? Dance is a great way to burn calories, increase cardio endurance, and get rid of the aches and pains of being sedentary! Get a 1-on-1 lesson and let us know what your goals are, so we can help you achieve them!
Reason #3: Couples reignite the spark in their relationship!
There's a reason every Disney Movie shows a beautiful princess being swept around the dance floor by her prince charming! Dancing is one of the few activities couples can do together where they are learning to communicate, physically touch, and are on the same team! The follow gets a chance to let go of control and enjoy a seamless connection to her partner while the lead has the opportunity to take responsibility, make decisions, and LEAD! Moving in sync and feeling the music with the one you love sparks intimacy and gives you the chance to connect in a whole new way!
Reason #2: Dancing increases positivity and relaxation!
Let's face it, this year has been stressful, limiting, scary, and upsetting. We have all experienced extra stress and now we all deserve to release that stress in a positive environment where physical movement and music relax even the most tense of people! Couples can come in together for a date night, or singles can get a lesson with one of our instructors as their dance partner! The hardest part of taking our Introductory Lesson Special is walking in the door!
Reason #1: Dancing gives SINGLES a community, confidence, and skills!
Your SINGLE friends want to be social, be part of a group, increase their confidence and swagger, as well as have skills that make them even more attractive! Invite them to try a $15 Introductory Dance Lesson to have a great time, move, and experience the joy of dancing with another person. As a single person they get the added advantage of dancing with an instructor, learning faster, and getting the entire lesson personalized to them!
Thank you all for introducing people to the joy of dancing and helping us GROW!!
