The Pasadena Ballroom Dance Association was organized in 1983 by sisters Erin & Tami Stevens as a way to promote all forms of social dancing. The classes generally run in progressive, 6-week series all year 'round ($75 series; or $15 single class admission.) Near the end of each series, the dates and times of the next series are updated on this site.
We offer Beginning thru Advanced group classes (& private lessons) in Ballroom Dancing and all styles of Swing Dancing: Jitterbug (Eastcoast Swing), Lindy Hop, Smooth Lindy/Westcoast Swing, and Balboa, plus Tango, Hustle and more!
