NO PARTNER NEEDED. Optional open dancing after beginning group lessons for extra practice and enjoyment included! For upcoming classes and rates, please check out our class schedule here:

Beginner & Accelerated Fundamentals

Intended for anyone brand-new to ballroom, our workshops provide the tools and guidance needed to comfortably move across the dance floor.  In our "True Beginner" classes you will be introduced to Waltz, Foxtrot, Nightclub Two-Step, and Rumba, among others, and learn both basic figures, as well as basic technique. In "Accelerated Beginners", experienced dancers new to ballroom will move through the dances a little faster with eye to technique and stylistic elements. Lessons are designed with each dancer’s needs in mind, with an emphasis on confidence-building and fun. NO PARTNER NEEDED. Get in touch today to find out more and to reserve your spot.

Move Like A Dancer

Building on the fundamentals of ballroom dance our workshops introduce stylistic techniques and more advanced figures, guaranteed to make you shine. Focusing on intermediate bronze and silver levels, these classes are perfect for the dancer who wants to take his or her learning to the next level.  Dances include Waltz, Foxtrot, Nightclub Two-Step, Tango, Rumba, and Cha Cha, among others. NO PARTNER NEEDED. Get in touch and join us today!

Private Lessons

This option is perfect for the dancer who likes learning solo or the couple who wants individual attention to reach their personal goals. We offer packages for wedding dances that include basic dance technique and choreography. Or schedule classes on a one-time basis as you have need - bring yourself, or come with a dance partner - you call the shots. Are you preparing for an audition? We can help!


Ingrid began her studies of dance at the age of four in her home country of Germany. Her early training included ballet and lyrical, followed by jazz, modern, and contemporary. When she was twelve, she found her passion in ballroom dancing, and became a gold star-level ballroom champion, competing in International Standard Ballroom through the highest amateur levels of the ADTV (German Dance Teachers Association), now DPV, member body in the World Dance Council. Since coming to the United States, Ingrid has enjoyed sharing her love for dance in many diverse settings, from her kitchen floor with her husband and four children to professional settings, like the Spokane Civic Theatre, Spokane Valley Summer Theatre, Whitworth University, various area High Schools, and the Oaks Conservatory for the Creative and Performing Arts, where she has been teaching and inspiring students of dance both as a choreographer and dance instructor. Ingrid studied theater and dance at Whitworth University and is currently pursuing her dream of directing a School of Ballroom Dance in Spokane.
