Tickets for the Dream Ball include five dance lessons in preparation for the ball.

  • No specific partner needed, you will learn how to be confident and have fun dancing with different partners.

  • Learning the Waltz and East Coast Swing will begin with a line dance, in which you will practice the moves without a partner.

  • Using the skills learned from the line dance you can progress into partner dancing.

  • We strongly recommend participants attend all five lessons, as dance instruction is progressive.  Lessons will build off of the prior week.

  • A written copy of dance moves will be provided each week so participants can practice on their own in between lessons.

Combining two for her favorite things - Christmas & dance - Acker Music festival has been one of her favorite performance opportunities. [[Sky views social dance as: “It’s like getting to have recess again as an adult!” She hopes to inspire others to dance for the difference in confidence it can make in a person both as an individual and in social interaction. ]] One of her favorite songs of all-time says it all: “The Best Things Happen While You’re Dancing.”
