Jersey City Dance Classes - No Partner or Experience Needed
Whether you want dance lessons to perfect your first dance, enhance your competitive dance skills, or to take your social dancing to the next level, Jersey City Ballroom is here for you.

We take pride in making dance accessible to Jersey City and the surrounding community.

Co-founders Shimkiri and Werner Figar know just how impactful dance can be, as it has brought joy to their lives for over twenty years via performing and competing. Now, they want to bring that joy to you through the magic of dance lessons! Inspired by their love of dance, the duo founded Jersey City Ballroom in May 2015. Upon continued success, they decided to expand further in June 2017.

When you visit us for dance lessons, you'll find you are not simply entering a dance studio - but a dance community. Before you know it, you will have made new friends, with shared interests. Your bond will grow as you attend our dance socials, community events or maybe even join a performance team or dance congress! The best part is that you don't have to be an expert, all levels are welcome - and you never need to bring a partner. All we require is a desire to dance. Oh, and your dancing shoes, of course!

What turns a first-time student into a veteran? Our world-class instruction certainly helps, but equally important is confidence! Come in believing that you're a great dancer. With commitment and perseverance, you'll be amazed by how gracefully you begin to move. Remember, confidence can make even a mistake look like a cool new step.

Our stunning studio has high ceilings, dark hardwood floors and chandeliers. Our track lighting and supurb sound system amplifies every performance at our venue, giving both dancers and audience members an amazing experience. It is the perfect place to dance, especially due to the people inside it! Professionals and friends will push you to attain your dance goals and support you with positive energy and camaraderie. In turn, you'll find yourself cheering for those around you as well!

Our dance instructors are all extremely experienced, and active in the dancing community, so you know that you are receiving the best dance lessons that you can get. Our staff love to share their expertise with others, but you might find yourself tempted to just sit back and watch them dance from time to time!

Whenever anyone asks what makes us stand out from the competition, we tell them that there is nothing like learning to dance in the most elegant atmosphere by highly experienced instructors! They will encourage you to dance at your best, but you'll be having so much fun that you won't even realize you're being challenged! At Jersey City Ballroom, we are a team - and you are a crucial member of it. We are dedicated to ensuring that you have everything you need to ensure optimum levels of support.

If you are looking to get out and dance in Jersey City, our studio is the right place for you. The ballroom offers group classes, private dance lessons, competitive training, wedding dance lessons, and even social dance parties!

Our group dance lessons and social dance parties are the place to go if you are looking for a wide variety of dance styles.

Our Bronze classes and FUNdamentals are designed for all skill levels, and can even be tailored to fit your special needs if you have an injury or require assistance. At our studio, you'll feel like you walked onto the set of Dancing with the Stars receiving all 10s from the judges' panel!
