Acton Woman’s Club Dance Classes

For over 65 years, the Acton Woman’s Club Dance Classes have provided an exciting Friday evening out for thousands of AB students in grades 5-10.   In the large upstairs hall of the AWC Clubhouse, and within the social setting of dancing and music, students also learn the importance of being courteous, kind and polite.

This  series of  nine classes helps children develop social skills in formal and informal settings while having a great time mastering dancing skills.

By learning, and more importantly,  practicing social etiquette, our students walk away with the confidence of knowing what to do, not only in the ballroom, but in all situations in life.  The importance of a firm handshake, eye contact, posture, confidence, making a good first impression, standing as a sign of respect, everyday etiquette tips, escorting and seating partners and the importance of conversation are all addressed during the classes.

Join us…it is a life lesson for all!



The dance classes take place under the direction of professional dance teacher, Mr. Douglas Trudeau. Mr. Trudeau has been teaching  etiquette and ballroom dance classes throughout the Boston area for 19 years with the Boston Assemblies, the largest and most successful network of professional social dance classes and etiquette instruction for children in the area.

Mr. Trudeau is also the founder and director of Showstoppers, a professional theatrical company. During daytime hours, he is the Director of Fine Arts for the Waltham Public Schools. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Communications and Performing Arts and a Master’s degree in Education Administration.
