Classes

At Philadelphia Dance Connection, we offer a wide array of dance styles for students of all ages and levels. Our primary focus in on development and improvement of your dancing rather than expecting perfection. It's about the journey not the destination. We focus on social dancing goals over performance or competition which is still offered but with a lighter focus. We also have a variety of options for registration, with packages to save you money - including 8-week full courses, and unlimited monthly passes, in addition to single class passes.
