Dance Classes

Spring is just around the corner and it’s time to dust off those dancing shoes. Billy Bobs will be starting a new 8 week country dance course on March 9th & 10th, 2014. 17 and under must be with a parent or guardian and bring their own dance partner. 18 and up, if you need a dance partner, we will try to pair you up–if available. Leather sole shoes work the best. No tennis shoes, flip-flops, clogs, open toed sandals, etc. Remember you can have dinner in our cafe overlooking the dance floor after your class and then stay and practice. Practice is the key to good dancing. We always have groups taking the class (church, office, family, friends, etc.) so feel free to put one together. No pre-registration needed. Just be there 15 minutes in front of your class, to be able to get a table, drink and wait to be called up. Cost is $5.00 per person per class with a $2.00 admission. Parking is free.


Sunday- March 9th
5PM–Beginner Country ( 3-step, 2-step, waltz & c.e. joe)
 6PM–Beginner Cha-cha (The hottest dance around right now with all the latin flavor in country music.)
Monday- March 10th
7PM–Beginner Country ( same as Sunday 5PM. In case you missed a class you make it up or take both.)
8PM–Intermediate 3-Step (

our most requested class. We dance a lot 3-step at BBT and these are steps we don’t get to teach in the beginner class)


Remember you can eat after your class at our cafe overlooking the dance floor and then stay and practice.
