If you’ve got a case of happy feet, or you’re just trying to find your rhythm, there’s a dance class out there for you. Covington’s Baker Hunt Art & Cultural Center can get you and your partner ready for the ballroom with their eight-week series for beginners (bakerhunt.org). Rather belly up to the barre? Cincinnati Ballet offers basic, beginner, and intermediate ballet classes, as well as Dancefix classes, which mix a variety of styles in the choreography (cballet.org/academy/adult). Katy Moeggenberg’s Anaya Belly Dance will have you executing perfect body waves in no time with her beginner, intermediate, and advanced sessions (anayabellydance.com). Dance without a major commitment: Contemporary Dance Theater lets you sample their menu of drop-in classes, including musical theater dance, modern, and hip-hop, without signing up for a multi-week session (cdt-dance.org). Bi-Okoto started as a dance company in 1994, but it has expanded its offerings through its Montgomery Road cultural institute, where you can take classes in Afro-Peruvian Salsa, West African dance, and Egyptian belly dance. And if that’s not enough rhythm for you, check out the West African drum lessons (bi-okoto.com).
