SoBo is a community dance center committed to keeping dance accessible, non-competitive, and a vital part of our social fabric.
SoBo hosts daytime and evening classes focused mostly on adults, with some options for children. Participants of all levels, abilities, and ages are welcome! SoBo offers flexible payment options, scholarship and work study opportunities, and maintains a family friendly environment. Our playroom is always open for children to explore while parent’s dance, with free supervision provided during select classes.
SoBo is home to Adventures with Super Bee, presenting dance performances for kids in kid friendly spaces, and Change the Channel, an improv and sketch comedy troupe.
