Drop-in ballroom dance classes in DC/VA?


With my nuptials up-and-coming (October), I’m looking for a place to drop in and take a few group ballroom lessons with my father. I know Arthur Murray and The Dance Factory, but AM is slightly astronomical in price, and I’ve never been to DF. We don’t need private, personalized lessons, just a few evenings of group lessons to have some fun and make sure we look coordinated out on the dance floor.
Any advice? Thanks!

I don’t know the pricing, but if I were taking ballroom classes, I would take them at Chevy Chase Ballroom.  It’s owned by Garry Gekhman (search for him on Youtube), whose dancing I’ve admired for years–he has a fun style and is incredibly talented.  It looks like he’s off for the month of August and not teaching any group classes, but other instructors are teaching plenty of classes: http://chevychaseballroom.com or https://www.facebook.com/CCBDC

My boyfriend and I took social dance classes with Joy of Motion (Bethesda studio) with Laurie Anderson. She’s a great teacher, really breaks things down. https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/ASP/home.asp?studioid=4077  We were able to dance at my bro’s wedding and not embarrass ourselves!

A zillion years ago, the Dupont Y had classes that were pretty reasonable.
