FloorTime Dance Formation Teams

Each FloorTime Studios Formation Team learns and rehearses an original choreographed dance routine created by professional instructor Sara Barker for a selected musical track. This fun and rewarding group experience culminates with a featured performance at one of our major seasonal dance events. No Partner Necessary. Open to men and women! Please contact Sara Barker to inquire about upcoming formation teams. It's a terrific opportunity to learn a polished choreography while mastering a fun range of social dance elements that you can put to work on the dance floor anytime!

FloorTime Studios Formation Teams offer a terrific value, and feature 12 hours of group rehearsal including original choreography. Please note that performance outfit and event tickets for performances are an additional but modest cost. A minimum group size is required for a series to proceed. 

Participants are encouraged to seek additional instruction through private dance lessons and/or group dance classes as offered. Participants missing 3 or more group rehearsals may be required, at the discretion of the course director, to take a make-up private lesson to ensure performance readiness.

Salsa Formation Team 2014!

No surprise at all ... FloorTime Studios Salsa specialist Mori Granot (founder of RI Latin Dance) did a phenomenal job choreographing and directing our Salsa Formation team from January - April 2014! With the constant support of fellow instructor Angel Sanchez, and the wonderful effort put forth by our dancers, the 2014 Salsa Formation Team was one we'll never forget.
