We specialize in ballroom, latin and swing dance lessons for students of all ages and abilities. Classes are offered in Minneapolis/St. Paul and the surrounding communities, mostly through community education and park and recreation programs.
The Constantine family has a long history of teaching people who have never danced before. They provide newcomers to dance with a comfortable, non-threatening environment where even the most reluctant participants discover they can be successful. In Constantine's classes, you'll find that quality instruction, professionalism, and humor all come together to create a most enjoyable experience and an introduction to dance that you won't find elsewhere.
Beginning Level 1 classes introduce students to several steps in a variety of dances. The core dances taught are the waltz, foxtrot and single rhythm swing. Other dances included in the course vary, but often include salsa, rumba, cha cha, polka, tango, triple rhythm swing, hustle, country western, or old time waltz. (See Group Classes for more details)
Level 2 classes are a continuation of the Level 1 program. We continue reviewing everything we've learned up to this point, and then add more! We teach new steps and offer styling tips to keep you progressing and gaining more enjoyment from your dancing. Everyone who completes Level 1 is welcome to attend Level 2! (See Group Classes for more details)
Level 3 classes and above continue to build on everything you've learned the past 8 or more weeks. By this point, your confidence on the dance floor can't help but be noticed! (Level 3 and higher are scheduled throughout the year as interest allows. Periodically check the Class Schedule if attending is of interest to you.)
Each course consists of four 1½ hour lessons. The fee is $50 per person, and you are invited to attend make-up lessons and repeat classes for FREE! That's right, no additional charge for extra practice or catching lessons missed for up to 2 months from the start of your session.
Not only that, but we're so sure you'll like the classes that we offer a first night trial class for just $15 per person. If you have as much fun as we know you will, then you pay the $35 balance to complete the course. If it didn't meet your expectations, then you still have money left over to catch dinner and a movie.
Classes usually begin at 7:00 or 7:30 in the evening, and are offered throughout the Twin Cities.
A partner is suggested, but not required. Those students who come alone will rotate dancing with others who have come alone, but we cannot make promises as to how many others will be at each class. Those who have come with a partner will not be asked to trade or switch off dancing with anyone else.
Constantine’s dance classes are fun and easy, and the most inexpensive way to learn to dance! At just $8.33 per hour of instruction, you know you're getting the most for your money!
