Ballroom Dancing in Augusta GA
Ballroom Dancing in Augusta Georgia
You may not know it, but Augusta Georgia has a huge ballroom dancing community. There is a dance or even two or three every weekend if you know where to look!
Different organizations such as USBDA (United States Ballroom Dance Association) host dances, as well as instruction facilities such as Ballroom in Motion with Teena Marie, and some clubs cater specificly to ballroom dancers such as The Tropicibana in downtown Augusta.
The American Legion on Milledge Rd has dancing on most Friday nights, as well as other various dance centers monthly offerings, but my favorite is Ballroom in Motions second Saturday dance. On the second Saturday of every month, Teena Marie hosts a dance that will have you out of your chair and on the dance floor! In addition to dancing, Teena has a great selection of dance shoes, dresses, and accessories, and even a free lesson!
The Ballroom Dance Center in Evens has dances as well concentrating on ballroom, and there are other places you can go where you can use your skills, but dont only do ballroom.
Shannons on Washington road has a live band 1 or both nights on the weekend, and they usually are of good quality. No cover, but a 2 drink min. with a band, but its worth it. They have good drink specials, and serve food. We usually have a good time when we go here.
Malibu Jacks is right around the corner, and they also have live music on the weekends, and I love to pop in when South Atlantic is playing, they usually rock the house.
Chevys has just opened in La Pavalion on Washington, and has live music or a great dj depending on the night, but they do charge a cover after 9, I believe.
There was a good latin club downtown Augusta called Tropicabana, but i believe they are closed right now.
The Mi Ranchos on Washington at one time hosted the salsa club, and I have went up there with friends a time or two..
There are several good old standards and new places popping up all the time, So if you have ever thought about ballroom dancing, but didnt know where to go, there are no excuses anymore! Give Teena Marie a call or click ballroominmotion.com
