Step into the enchanting world of ballroom dance with Louis Johnson, the passionate head coach of Momentum Ballroom Dance Team! Inspired by the timeless romance of Edsel and Eleanor Ford, who first met at a dance class, our ballroom dance class invites you to discover the elegance of the Foxtrot. Whether you’re a solo dancer or arriving with a friend, Louis welcomes all skill levels to experience the joy of smooth, flowing movements across the dance floor.

The Foxtrot, a smooth, progressive dance characterized by long, continuous flowing movements across the dance floor, has its roots in the 1910s. The dance reached its peak in the glamorous 1930s and still captivates hearts today.

Louis Johnson is a nationally ranked club of Pro/Am Dancesport competitors based in Detroit. In addition to Ballroom Dancing, Louis is also a DJ, basketball analyst, Tech serviceman, Humorist, Comedy Writer, and stand-up Comedian. He brings his expertise to each lesson, creating an atmosphere where good music and good food meet the art of dance.

This class takes place over four weekly sessions.

Book your ballroom dance adventure now! Louis is available for additional lessons throughout the week, providing a unique opportunity to embrace the rhythm and connect with the art of paired movement. Call or text 586-935-7944 to schedule your appointment and let the magic of dance unfold.
