Updated 8/26/2021 3:52 PM

Get creative this Fall with guitar and dance lessons at the Anderson Arts Center. Classes start in September for beginning students and those who want to enhance their technique.

For four weeks starting on September 7, beginner couples will be taught basic steps including the waltz, foxtrot, tango, salsa, cha-cha, rumba, and other classic styles. Advanced couples returning to classes will learn more advanced techniques and get reacquainted with the movements. Beginning classes are held on Tuesday nights and Technique Enhancement classes take place on Thursdays.


Perfect for weddings, special occasions, or just as a new hobby, ballroom dance is a great way to get healthy, improve balance and posture, and just have fun. Classes are held in the Kemper Center's Simmons Auditorium with enough room to social distance.

Former Broadway dancer Geri Dougherty enthusiastically returns as the dance instructor. Dougherty has been teaching Ballroom Dance at Kemper Center for nine years, and was previously a dance instructor at Arthur Murray for twelve years. In her youth, she took first place in the All American Dance competition in Madison, Wisconsin.

Ballroom dance lessons are $75 per couple for all four weeks. Single dancers and all ages are welcome.

Family guitar lessons are for students 10 years and up who would like to learn the basics of playing guitar. Classes run for five weeks on Sunday afternoons in the Anderson Arts Center building. Students are asked to bring their own guitar, but limited quantities of rentals are available. Classes are $45 for all five weeks.
