The Space

ADDRESS: Glover Park Brewery
65 Atlanta St SE, Marietta, GA 30060

Glover Park Brewery sits in the heart of Marietta's downtown, just off of the square. We have free parking in the salon next door to the brewery. You can park in any of the spots marked SALON for free.

MORE ABOUT THE LESSON

The lesson changes every week. We don't announce the dance we're teaching ahead of time-- you'll find out what it is when you show up. You just have to trust us that you'll learn something and you'll have a good time.

Frequently Asked Questions

I've arrived at the brewery, where is everybody?

The correct address for our event is 65 Atlanta St SE, Marietta, GA 30060

We're in the upstairs room of the brewery. Follow the stairs or ask a server for directions!

What is social dancing?

Social dancing means dancing with people in an improvised fashion, and not for people in performance or competitive situations.

We do not teach choreography, but if you get good enough at improvising sometimes it will look choreographed.

What is a lead and a follow? Is it gendered?

Lead and follow are the two roles in most social dancing situations.

If you are selecting the movements you are called the lead, if you are interpreting the movements of a lead then you are called the follow.

These roles are not gendered. Traditionally men would lead and women would follow but these days it's normal for someone to take an opposite role or to learn both.

What style of dance are you teaching?

We blend movements from different styles in our lessons. Our goal is to teach a form of dance that is practical and can be used in real-life situations (weddings, bars, in the kitchen with your spouse, etc).

Here are the dances we know and commonly pull from: Cha Cha, Waltz, Rumba, Zouk, American Tango, East Coast Swing, Foxtrot, Bolero, Kizomba, Viennese Waltz, Mambo, West Coast Swing, Merengue, Paso Doble, Salsa, Bachata, Hustle, Lindy Hop, Samba, Jive, Charleston, Balboa, Blues, Shag, Quickstep, Argentine Tango, Polka, Contra Dance, Fusion, and a few others that we cannot think of off the top of our heads.

What if I don't know how to dance?

That's totally fine! You don't need to have any experience to attend. Even if you think you are unable to learn, most anyone can be taught.

Do I need a partner?

No, you do not need a partner and if you do come with one we're still going to make you be part of the rotation. Dancing with different people is essential to improving — and it’s a great way to meet new friends.

Can my partner and I stay together the whole time and not rotate with everyone else?

Everyone attending the class must be part of the rotation. Even if you come as a couple we expect you to participate and dance with different partners during the class session.

In our experience, couples who do not rotate do not learn as quickly or meet as many people in the class so they don't have as much fun.

If you absolutely must stay with your partner you can just come and observe the lesson from the side and practice the movements with your date. We're totally okay with you doing that and you don't have to pay for tickets this way!

What should I wear?

Wear whatever is comfortable. Your feet may get stepped on so don't wear new white shoes. You'll find people wearing any number of things ranging from jeans and dress pants, to shorts and skirts.

Even though we're teaching dance you won't be dancing the whole time. No need for athletic clothing unless you feel like it. Also our air conditioning is amazing, you're more likely to be chilly than sweaty.

What is the parking situation?

We have free parking in the salon next door to the brewery. You can park in any of the spots marked SALON for free.

If those spots run out there are lots of $5 parking lots nearby and then some free options if you're willing to walk a little bit.

Is this event only for ages 21 and up?

We allow 18-21 year old's to attend but we make you wear a no-drink wrist band so the bartender knows not to serve you.

No guests under 18 years of age.

How can I attend for free?

You only need to buy a ticket if you want to be a part of the partner rotation.

Feel free to eat, drink, and watch for free at the tables. You can also try the steps off to the side of our lesson free of charge.

We need volunteers to collect tickets and take pictures/videos. If you want to participate in exchange for services like this please reach out to wilder@reframed.market.and we'll work it out!

How do the free drink vouchers work?

There are various ways to get these magical drink tickets. If you find yourself in possession of one you can exchange it at the bar for any drink on tap. They have non-alcoholic options if you prefer.

I have questions, who should I contact?

You can email wilder@reframed.market or come to the lesson and meet Wilder personally.

The Best Way to Spend an Evening!

You won't be disappointed. The teacher, Chris, is very entertaining and makes learning how to dance so much fun. I first attended several months ago as a newbie and had so much fun and confidence instilled in me that I've been going back almost every week since then. I also love meeting so many new and interesting people at each class. And I'm not the only one who feels this way; there are several other folks just like me who keep going back every week. And if you like beer, this place has the best! Keep up the good work!

Great venue, wonderful teacher!

My husband and I have been three times now and have learned so much. Chris is a great teacher who teaches at. a pace that is perfect for beginners but fun for more advanced dancers as well. Taught upstairs at GP which is the perfect venue for ballroom lessons with the large hardwood floor dancing area and ambient lighting. Looking forward to next Tuesday's session!

Skeptical at first, but so much FUN!

I am a complete beginner (like almost *everybody* at the dance lesson) and at first I didn't think I would like trading partners throughout the lesson. I thought it would be awkward and uncomfortable and definitely NOT my preference ... but after coming to several weeks of lessons with my wife we are having more fun than ever! Trading partners is actually what MAKES these lessons work! I learn how to become a better leader and my wife learns how to become a better follower, and then when we dance with each other it all comes together like magic. =) Wilder is an amazing dance instructor, so laidback and so knowledgeable.
