Dance Class

Welcome to The Acton Woman’s Club 2023 Dance Classes!

As a non-profit, charitable social club in the Historic Center of Acton, the Acton Woman’s Club has sponsored the Dance Class for over 70 years as a community enrichment program for thousands of local youth, providing an exciting Friday evening of fun and dancing, learning a variety of dance styles, as well as dance floor etiquette.  The Dance Classes generate funds that promote the AWC’s philanthropic activities, including ABRHS senior scholarships and donations to local charities.

Registration will be open this spring in March. 

Keep an eye out for the poster in front of our building and updates on this website.

We are excited to introduce our new instructor, Carole-Ann Baer.   Carole-Ann has been in the dance field for well over 30 years, bringing an array of experience to her profession.  She danced with the world champion BYU Ballroom Dance Team while in college and continued on with ballroom dance teaching at both the Fred Astaire and Arthur Murray Dance studios in Salt Lake City, Boston, and Worcester.

Carole-Ann has been a theater choreographer for the Ephraim Curtis Middle School in Sudbury as well as The Temple Shir Tikva Players in Wayland.  She has been teaching dance at Brandeis University for over 25 years and is a champion ballroom dance competitor. Her love of dance and of people is an earmark of her classes, allowing students to feel welcome and at ease.
