Link Description
Ballroom - Ultimate Dance Sport I would call this my "home" studio. I have been taking lesson with owner Danny Leher for many years. The studio's focus tends towards competitive dancing but has social dances every Friday night and classes for both competitive and social dancing throughout the week. This is where I most frequently DJ. In my opinion this is also the best dance floor in Sacramento.
Ballroom - The Ballroom This is where I first started taking ballroom lessons and still do but just not as frequently. While I would call them the Sacramento center for social ballroom dancing, they have very capable competitive teachers and students also. They have a country western dance party dance every Friday night and the largest social ballroom dances in the area every Saturday night (possibly with the exception of the semi annual galas hosted by Let's Dance Ballroom)..
Ballroom - Spotlight Although dancers of all ages are welcomed and do attend their events, this studio tends to attract the youngest ballroom dancing crowd in the area. Located in West Sacramento they attract dancers from the Davis area as well as all of Sacramento. They feature many classes and parties. Several times a month they have beginner dance parties that are the best in the area for first time dancers.
Ballroom - Roseville Dance This is the newest studio in the area and offers the greatest variety of dance instruction. In addition to social and competitive ballroom dance they include instruction in Hip Hop, Jazz, KinderMusik and Bollywood (and I'm sure I've missed a few). Check their website for their ballroom dance party schedule. Many of their parties feature their instructors as dance hosts. Because of their warm family atmosphere, my wife picks this as her favoite local studio.
Square / Round Dancers Association ASDSC - The Associated Square Dancers of Superior California. This is the local dance association and despite the name it also serves the local round dance community.
Win Win R's Circle - This is the round dance club that I most often attend. Win presents an excellent phase 4-6 program.

Ghostriders My favorite dance band is the Ghostriders. They turn an ordinary square dance into an event not to be missed. I have had the pleasure of dancing to them on numerous occasions as well as performing with them as the featured caller at several events sponsored by local clubs.
