starting april 1st

Progressive Group Classes - 4 week sessions

Join us for weekly group classes.
Each one Starts at the beginning of the month.

Group classes are a great way to get started! They are so much fun and easy to do! Here is some details on how to begin.

Registration online is required for each group class session. New group class sessions will begin the first of each month. Class price is $35 per person for 4 of the same group classes. If we are unable to host 4 week sessions we will do a three week session for $25. No refunds will be given and everyone must pay on or before the first day of class. If you miss a class we will not allow makeups or refunds. Also, if you sign up with a partner it has to be the same one at registration. Additional guests will have to pay to drop in. Price per class is $15 per person. We recommend starting the first week of class, since group classes will build from the previous class. No partner or experience is needed for beginner group classes. We also do not rotate partners during beginner classes, but we will rotate partners in the intermediate classes.

In the case of bad weather, we will be closed and classes will be canceled with no refunds or make up classes, since the sessions are discounted. If Omaha Public Schools or Millard Public Schools are canceled due to weather, the studio will also close. If it is a weekend class, we will contact the students in the class and post on the studio website on the homepage.

Intermediate classes are for students who have taken 30 or more group classes, 10 or more private lessons, and/or can dance Bronze level 1 or 2 in that dance style. If you are unsure if you are ready for an intermediate group class please schedule a private lesson. To book a private lesson please click here.

We require 8 people to be registered in each class for the class to continue. Please be aware that we will cancel a class if the minimum has not been met. You will be notified by email the day before the class, if we have to cancel. If you prepaid you will be refunded. Please help us keep our classes going by sharing with friends and registering in advance. We appreciate those who invite others to join them in classes!

If you have a Groupon or a punch card on file that is less than one year old, you can still register online. To do so  please use the word “GROUPON” or “PUNCHCARD” under promo code to bypass payment during check out. Please bring your groupon the day of class. Anyone who does not have punch card or a groupon to show will be asked to pay.  Same applies to gift certificate holders or Living Social Vouchers.

If you are currently taking one private lesson per week at Omaha Ballroom with any of our instructors, you can register for group classes and pay half price with the promo code “VIP.”

If there is a class style and/or time that you would prefer that is not on the schedule, we are happy to create that class for you. We do ask that you gather 8 or more people to register and we will create it for you. Message us at info@omahaballroom.com to request class times and styles once you have a group.

Thank you and we look forward to working with you!
