Or, sign up for private lessons customized just for your needs and desires. Come to Ballroom Center to learn social dancing, or to refine your skills for Dancesport competition.

Dreaming of the perfect wedding dance? We specialize in unique choreography created just for you, or we will teach you all the basics you need to make your first dance as a married couple memorable, elegant and stress-free.

Ballroom Center is located in a beautiful, custom-created studio in downtown Libertyville, convenient to the highway and only 30 minutes from Chicago. The ballroom features fabulous, shock-absorbing Junckers floors (the same floors used on TV’s Dancing with the Stars!) and a state-of-the art sound system.

On your own or with a partner or friend, whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned professional, whether you want to meet new friends while learning basic skills or train for competition, Ballroom Center is the place for you.

We invite you to join our dance family and have the time of your life!
