Social Dancing


Welcome to NIKA Ballroom and Latin Dance Academy (part of The Ballroom, LLC). We are thrilled to have you as a member of our elite studio.  No matter what your dance goal is, our coaches will help you reach it, by creating a special program exclusively for you!

For our social groups we currently offer four unique-style programs:

  • Couples - Ballroom and Latin basics (class meets every Monday at 8pm)
  • Basics of Solo Latin American Dancing (class meets every Thursday at 8.30pm)
  • Syllabus of Solo Latin American dancing (class meets every Tuesday at 7.15pm) These classes study technical elements of Cha cha cha, Samba, Rumba, Paso Doble and Jive, or Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot or Quickstep. The program of these classes is similar to our professional and pre-professional classes, but is significantly simplified, so it can be easily digested by a newcomer, and still you get a real DanceSport experience!! Class is suitable for people 16+

  • Senior 60+ - this program is designed to help our seniors stay active and healthy. Created and taught by Elena Zakharova. You get to learn all 10 dances in a slow pace and friendly atmosphere. Class is currently on hold due to COVID limitations  

Also we offer a wide variety of private programs, including Wedding dance choreography.

Our dancers are available for a special treat to your event guests - they can perform a Latin or Ballroom dance show and teach you and your friends a movement or two.
