If music causes your heart to beat 1,250 times a minute, it could be the beautiful hummingbird inside you trying to dance out.... or you could be having a real massive coronary.

What’s New as a Teenager?


Susannah and I felt like proud parents when we celebrated Ballroom Blitz’s 13th birthday (June 16, 2017. When you sign a 5+5 lease, you think that ten years will never arrive, and then you get there and re-up for another term. At that point, you’re thinking maybe this is more than a dream after all. Thank you everyone for dancing with us all these years. It is because of you that our little teenager has become the Belle of the Ball.

$5 PRACTICE NIGHTS 8-9:30PM - June 30th, July 7th & 21st

These 90-minute dance socials are specially designed to get you dancing, practicing what you learned in current and previous classes. They're a little nerve racking but a lot of fun, and everyone is super cool to dance with.

THE LATIN WORKOUT

The Latin Workout continues to burn calories twice a week on Tuesdays at 3pm and Thursdays at 4pm. What exactly is this class? It’s a dance exercise class that includes the Merengue, Salsa, Cha-Cha, Jive & Triple-Time Swing, Samba, and Rumba. We even throw in a muscle isolation exercise and end with a cool down stretch. You will take about 5,500 steps in this one hour class, so be ready to sweat and have a great time. Each session costs $14, or you can purchase a 6-Pack for $65.

MONDAYS STARTING JULY 17TH

SALSA 7-8pm $65 for 6 weeks –Now a Monday regular, Salsa kicks off the new session at 7pm. This Latin dance continues to be one of our most popular classes.

AB301 8-9pm $65 for 6 weeks – This one hour class is especially designed for the experienced social dancer (post-AB201) ready to learn Continuity Style Ballroom dancing.

TUESDAYS STARTING JULY 18th

SAMBA 7-8pm $65 for 6 weeks –Okay, I truly believe that Susannah is trying to kill us! First the Lindy, Jive, and now Samba. This dance, also known as the Brazilian Waltz, is what they dance at Carnival. This dance moves to a lively 2/4 rhythm with 3 steps to each measure somewhere between 48-52 measures per minute. You do the math. If you Google image “samba”, apparently clothes are optional in Brazil when dancing the Samba.

WEDNESDAYS STARTING JULY 19TH

AB101 @ 5:30pm-7pm $85 for 6-Weeks – This is our Genesis Project, where stellar dancers are born. It’s one thing to be good on the dance floor, but it’s another thing to have to dance attached to another body. The Adult Basic 101 is the class where you learn to play nice with others while dance the basics in the Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Swing, and Salsa. Couples dancing truly is the last bastion of human contact.

THURSDAYS STARTING JULY 20TH

VIENNESE WALTZ @ 8:30pm $65 for 6 Week –Historically danced by Highlanders to celebrate the Summer Solstice, this is dance that made Boston the city that it is. Are you still reading this? You know I’m lying, right? Viennese Waltz is a timeless ballroom dance that is a crowd favorite, because it exudes class and elegance. It is characterized by speed and rotation to music that is a chipper 180 beats a minute.
