QuickSilver Dancers offers social dance lessons in Country & Western, Swing, Ballroom, and Line Dancing; for singles and couples, ages youth to adult, from absolute newcomer to experienced competitor. Our goal is to help you feel comfortable and relaxed on the dance floor, because dancing is not only great exercise, it is also great FUN, and you will meet some terrific people out on the dance floor.
Owned and operated in Texas by Valerie Ryan since 1992, classes are offered throughout central Texas: in Austin, Wimberley, San Marcos, Kyle, New Braunfels, Bulverde, and San Antonio. QuickSilver Dancers offers group and private lessons in monthly format, plus occasional special workshops, in studios or at off-site locations, for weddings, quinceaneras and other special occasions.
Our group classes are taught in a unique two-hour format, allowing you to reinforce prior lessons with a structured review before getting new material, which builds confidence in your dancing experience from week to week. Classes identified as "beginner" are open to anyone; we will teach you everything you need to know about the dance -- its character and rhythm, its basic step and the first easy patterns -- so you can be out having fun in no time at all! Classes identified as "intermediate" are open only to students who have had our beginner class, so that you are familiar with all the terminology and patterns we expect an Intermediate-level dancer should know.
