Other Ideas: Urbanity Dance; Byfield Community Arts Center; Jose Mateo's Ballet Theatre; Boston Ballet School; The Dance Inn
Champions Dance Sports Club was created in 2006 to bring Ballroom and Latin dancing to every generation’s life from ages 4 to adults.
We offer dance classes and private lessons to children who wish to succeed as competitors or simply enjoy the social aspect of dancing.
Champions Dance Sports Club offers a wide variety of Ballroom and Latin dances for young children and teens. Kids can choose whether to learn how to social dance or a more challenging route to competitive training.
Our highly trained teachers with competitive background are fully accredited to help them succeed.
The Ballroom dances will introduce the young ones to the beauty of the traditional dances such as Waltz, Foxtrot, Quickstep, Tango and Viennese Waltz. In the Latin American field they will study Samba, Rumba, Cha-cha, Jive and Paso Doble.
Dancing and belonging to a dance community will keep children busy and out of the streets. Dancing will also keep them in a good shape and will contribute to a healthy life style.
Ballroom classes teach kids a lot about teamwork. Since it is based on partner dancing they will become familiar with the other gender and learn how to relate better to them. Ballroom dancing is for every generation.
For kids the main goal can be to become competitive dancers, establish a new hobby, set goals to work towards while they exercise.
