Ballroom & Latin Studio @ Ms. Clara’s Joyful Learning Center
(708) 717-9119


Whatever brings you to ballroom dance – whether you’re planning your wedding, attending a special event or just want to learn something new – you’ll be amazed at how much you’ll benefit all around. Even more than a fun way to stay in shape and meet people, dance challenges the mind in exciting new ways.

Brookfield mom Teresa Swanson is the founder, head teacher, and lead choreographer of Sway Dance Chicago, a ballroom and latin dance studio offering group classes and private lessons for adults of all levels.  Rooted in Teresa’s joy in movement of all kinds, Sway Dance offers classes that are fun and low pressure, giving students an opportunity to let go of their hectic lives for a few hours and fall in love with dancing.

The classes at Sway Dance run the gamut from ballroom, latin, and swing partner dances at all levels to personalized choreography in any style to group performance classes with and without partners, but each class or private lesson is imbued with the same enthusiasm for movement that brought Teresa to dance in the first place.
