Colorado's #1 Youth Ballroom Dance Program (ages 5-18)
Booth's has been teaching kids to ballroom, latin, and swing dance in Denver for over 20 years. What started as a way for owners Richard and Jennifer Booth to teach their sons to dance, turned into what is now Colorado's largest youth ballroom dance program. While many ballroom schools mainly cater to adult clientele with the occasional kid's class, Booth's offers private and ongoing group classes for youth ages 5 to 18.
Skills that will last a lifetime
Semester Group Classes
We currently offer six group classes in our youth program. Each group class teaches patterns, timing/rhythm, lead/follow skills, and the style of a variety of dances. Kids have an opportunity to explore formal dances such as the Waltz and Tango in our Ballroom classes; and kick up their heals with dances such as the Cha Cha and Swing in our Rhythm classes.
Group classes are offered on a semester (3 month) basis. Semesters begin in January, April, July, and October. We highly recommend and encourage all kids before starting any of our semester classes to take our Introductory Special for Youth. This is an excellent way to introduce ballroom dancing to your child and to make sure this is something he or she would like to do before signing up for 3 months of group classes.

Private Lessons (ages 5-18)
Private lessons are taught Monday - Thursday 12-9pm and Friday 1-9pm by appointment. Private lessons can be taken one-on-one or as a couple. Your child will be assigned a primary instructor, and you may change instructors if you feel a different instructor would be a better match for your child's learning style. Private lessons are the best method for accelerating your child's learning as the instructor will go at his/her pace, and cater to their personal needs as a student learning to ballroom dance.
Private lessons are discounted for anyone under 18 from our regular adult rates. Youth Rate $25/ per 25 minutes.
