Video Class Series Archive

Even if you missed out on the online class series, you can still purchase the instructional videos for Erica's original routines "Look a There", "How Do They Do It That Way"& "Ellington Nights" in our online store. Appropriate for all levels, with plenty of extra explanation for newer dancers.

We also leave all of our Facebook Live classes up for you to take on your own schedule (though we can't interact with you like we can when we are live).






Support the Studio

Since the COVID19 crisis prevents us from offering our full range of classes, and threatens to do so into 2021, making enough to cover our expenses is a challenge.  If you'd like to support the studio during this time, here are some ways you can do so:


Take a class

Join us in the studio, outdoors, tune in on Facebook & YouTube (donation-based free classes), come take a class in person, register for our monthly online jazz series, or purchase a set of instructional videos from our online store and learn on your own time!


Buy some merch

Order Happy Dancer sticker sets, drawn by local dancer Claire Simmonds.




We also still have limited quantities of RVA Swing logo, Balboa is Now, and Purr Bal shirts available for sale in our online store.


Buy a gift certificate   
These never expire & also make great gifts.  Once it is safe to re-open fully, you'll be all set for classes! These are also valid for our online classes, so they can also be used right away.



Shop our Red Bubble store
We've added lots of our previous event designs to our new Red Bubble store, featuring mugs, stickers, bags and more.   All products are manufactured and shipped by Red Bubble and we get 20% of each sale.


Talk us up! 
Affected by this crisis and can't support monetarily? We get you, friends! You can support us with your likes, comments & shares on Facebook, as well as your online reviews on Google & Facebook. 

We are all in this together, and we can't wait to dance with you all again soon!
