Vintage Swing Dance

If ballroom dancing represents romance and refinement and salsa dancing heart pounding rhythm and sensual movement, vintage swing dancing represents sassy, wild crazy fun and a rhythmic playground! The music played at vintage swing dances is most from the 1920’s, 1930’s, 1940’s and 1950’s. You will find the music to uplifting, lite hearted and happy. It is also highly contagious giving everyone an infectious smile! Due to the nature of the music and the vintage swing dance styles, everyone in the room is in a good mood quickly finding their troubles floating away. Of course something of this nature attracts a good clean living crowd. So expect to meet some of the nicest people you will find anywhere! Plus at the Ballroom On High you will find the nicest, most welcoming crowd of vintage swing dancers anywhere in the region guaranteed!
Ballroom Dance Social
Are you looking for ballroom dance socials? How about a place to go and enjoy those valuable ballroom dance skills you have been pick up? Already an awesome ballroom dancer and just looking for a place to have a fun night out? You need look no further for ballroom dance socials. Lots of dance studios claim they want to help people get over their fear of social dancing, but then have no dance parties open to the general public & instead push their students to spend more money competing and taking endless private lessons. What happened to social dancing? We at the Ballroom On High are truly all about social dancing! It was the reason we opened our doors in the first place in 2006. Unlike an ordinary dance studio, our focus is on having dance socials. Our dance lessons are just a way to create more dancers so we can have more fun at our ballroom dance socials. Our goal is to provide a place where you can make new friends and get your social dance fix!
Salsa Dance Party
Looking for a cultural dance experience? Come out for our salsa dance party! Salsa dancing though cultural in nature is popular way beyond the borders of Latin communities. The salsa dance party music is infectious! The atmosphere is electric! The people are fun loving and community focused. At a salsa dance party, you can expect to dance salsa, cha cha, merengue and bachata styles of dance. Adding to the party feel, our salsa dance party is the only dance night where we have a BYOB policy. Who needs to drive to Philadelphia for great Latin dancing? Not those north of the city in Pottstown PA! Join us and see why salsa dance party Latin dances have been thriving since 2008 in Pottstown!<
Country Line Dancing
Until around 2008 country line dancing was all the rage. You had the Friendly Tavern and Prospectors down in New Jersey. As well as Montana West up in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. Other smaller venue littered the countryside as well. Much like the vintage swing dance fad before it, country line dancing was a fad coming to an end. But that is the thing about fads, they are just that. Serious dancers never stop just because the fad has come and gone. They just keep on dancing! So I suspect much like vintage swing dance’s true revival (happening now), we will soon see the revival of serious country line dancing. Not just a fad but a serious moment that will come to stay.
California Mix Dance Party
The California Mix Dance Party returns to the Ballroom On High! You may be wondering, “What is a California Mix Dance Party?” Well, if you enjoy West Coast Swing, Night Club Two Step, Hustle, Salsa, Bachata or any ballroom styles of dance, you will enjoy the California Mix Dance Party. This dance will be heavy in the styles listed above. However, it’s premiere style of dance is West Coast Swing. West Coast Swing is a very versatile style of dance. You can dance it to many forms of music. Most importantly you can dance it to modern party music. You know, the kind of music disc jockeys play at weddings, parties and in clubs. In other words, West Coast Swing is a style of dance you should know and know well to be an awesome dancer. Though West Coast Swing is danced at our Ballroom Dance Socials as well, it is only danceable to 5% of the music being played. So much for versatile! No, it is just that ballroom dance styles are very music specific. Thus in order to dance their many styles, they must play styles of music that are very specific to those styles. Though we don’t mention West Coast swing at our vintage swing dances, salsa – Latin dances or country dances you can dance it to some of the styles of music played at these dances as well. So, yes it is versatile! However, if you want a night of dance where you can dance it 70% of the time you will need to attend a California mix dance party or crash a wedding. However, if you crash a wedding you better take your own dance partner or you’ll be up a creek without a paddle!
