The Youth Dance Classes will be held this fall, 2021.

Fall Youth Dance Classes Hosted by the Acton Woman’s Club

As a non-profit, charitable social club in the Historic Center of Acton, the Acton Woman’s Club has sponsored the Dance Class for 70 years as a community enrichment service for thousands of local youths, grades 5 through 8, (some years up to 10th), providing an exciting Friday evening full of fun and dancing. In the large upstairs hall of our historic building, students learn a variety of dance styles including the Fox Trot, Tango, Waltz, Swing, and the Cha-Cha during nine weekly classes.

Dance Room

Social skills, developed and practiced as the young people are having fun dancing, include the importance of being courteous, eye contact, posture, self-confidence, making a good first impression, and other etiquette tips.

The Dance Classes generate funds that promote the AWC’s philanthropic activities — including ABRHS senior scholarships and donations to local charities while also helping to maintain its historic building.

We extend a hearty welcome to students throughout the Metro West area, newcomers as well as returning students. Students may come from anywhere, though, given the word-of-mouth reputation of this popular series, most attendees come from the AB school system. This course is also great preparation for High School Socials; your children will feel greater confidence in their dance abilities , and be ready for any party!

A Fond Farewell …

For the past 8 years our dance instructor has been Doug Trudeau, who began before that by instructing alongside his uncle. Many of our recent students first learned to dance with Mr. Trudeau.  Doug has retired this year from teaching our classes, and we wish him all the best.  He was a wonderful teacher who kept the upstairs hall lively and full of happy energy.                            

 …and a Warm Welcome!

We now enthusiastically welcome our new instructor, professional dance coach, Sergiy Georgiyev who, with his family, has recently moved to Acton.

He has been teaching ballroom dance classes in Europe and the US for 21 years. In the last 8 years, in the Boston Area, he has taught competitive dance to all ages, including children.

He is enthusiastic about working with our Acton students, teaching dance in a relaxed and fun social setting.

Safety during COVID-19

With Massachusetts Covid mandates being lifted and with an abundance of caution, Dance Class protocols, if needed, will be put into place in early September, especially if children under 12 are still not vaccinated.  The Acton Woman’s Club has 4 Honeywell HEPA air purifiers for the upstairs which will be used, and which exceed ventilation guidelines for provision of clean air in that space.  Masks will be required for all persons (youth and adults) who enter the building or who are around the doorways.
