River Oaks School of Dancing provides social dancing opportunities for our students to enjoy every week, which includes a variety of events at the studio and other venues to attend with fellow students and studio instructors.
Friday Night Dancing
Our Friday Night Group Class is held in the studio ballroom every week at 8:00 PM, followed by our Dance Social beginning at 9:00 PM. Every Friday night we host our very own dance party!
Friday Night Group Class
Every Friday at 8:00 PM, we offer a group class to our enrolled students. This is a great way to supplement your private lessons and to meet new friends! We provide instruction in our dynamic, high energy brand of ballroom dancing under the guidance of our expert teachers.
Each week we choose a different dance topic to teach. Some nights, we teach newer styles, and other nights we focus strictly on traditional ballroom styling. We also have nights where we reintroduce dance styles not seen very often. New material will be taught in each class, while continuously rotating through major dances in the ballroom genre. All classes are suitable for every level of dance skill!
Every Friday at 9:00 PM, we provide just the place for our students to polish their dance moves to perfection at our very own dance party! We play a variety of music and a serve-yourself bar is provided. This is a great opportunity to mix and mingle with our wonderful students who are also interested in learning to dance!
See Calendar for details.
Join us for group dance lessons and social dancing every Friday evening.
Social Dancing at River Oaks School of Dancing
Even if you can’t attend the class on Friday night, you can come for the Dance Social. Join us every week on the dance floor and practice what you’re learning. The best way to fast-track your dance learning efforts is to combine your lessons with group classes and social practice. As with any sport or hobby, practice makes perfect, and Friday night dance practice at River Oaks School of Dancing just happens to be a party!
Many potential dancers are reluctant to attend classes because they believe that a partner is either required or strongly recommended when that is not true. All classes do not require a partner to participate! During our group classes and social events, students rotate partners, so you will always have someone to dance with.
Join community built around dancing. Come by yourself and ready to mingle, or with a partner and ready to strengthen your relationship. Young or old, single or married, out of shape or physically fit, graceful or burdened with two left feet… no matter your background or personality, the ballroom world is eager to welcome you with open arms. There is no evaluation or critique for these events. It’s a ballroom dance party!
River Oaks School of Dancing also hosts outings to other clubs and dance venues as a group! We go to a variety of dance venues in Houston when there’s live music to ballroom dance to. These are called our Night Out socials. All of these events have offered some of the best local bands and DJs!

Best Dance Lesson Value in Houston
Signing up for our 45-minute private lessons also signs you up for our Friday Night Group Class and Dance Social! There’s no extra cost for our weekly group class and dance party. That’s three separate classes (group lessons, social dancing, and private instruction) for the price of one, which is among the best dance lesson values in Houston.
