Anyone may attend Cape Ballroom. The lessons are designed for adults, however some high school Seniors and Juniors attend and do well. Some parents bring a younger child to sit and watch, or dance with their parent. Children under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult, and conduct themselves in a manner that is appropriate for a ballroom. Please keep in mind that there may not be dance partners available for children under 16. Young children should not be on the dance floor unless they are dancing with, or being carried by, an adult. The admission fee applies to anyone who participates in the lesson or dance, regardless of age. Everyone who enters the dance, who is 14 years of age or older must sign the sign-in sheet at the front desk. Adults who bring children under 18 years of age must sign in, whether they participate or not, and are assuming responsibility for their children.

Wedding Dance Lessons available.

Whatever dance you want to do at your wedding, step it up a notch!
