Why Ballroom Dancing?

Ballroom dancing is not just about the steps; it’s a celebration of movement, connection, and joy.

It’s an exercise for the body and the soul, enhancing your social skills, boosting confidence, and strengthening the bond with your partner.

The classes, focusing on a simple and enjoyable style of swing dancing, are designed to show how effortless and fun dancing can be, regardless of experience level.

Under the guidance of Michael Day, Mississippi’s most seasoned ballroom dance professional, participants will discover the ease and exhilaration of dance.

With over four decades of experience in Ballroom, Cabaret, and Theater Arts, Day is not just an instructor; he’s an artist who has dedicated his life to the dance floor.
