If you are a wallflower too timid to tango, or a regular Joe who wants to impress the ladies but happens to have two left feet, then 3rd Street Dance is for you. A neighborhood fixture for 33 years, this quaint little studio specializes in dances of the social variety. You won't find any ballerinas here. This is the place in L.A. to come for swing, tango, salsa and ballroom classes of all levels. Couples or soloists can sign up; no one will be left without a partner. For that personal touch, the studio offers private instruction with its noteworthy teachers. Couples who are ready to tie the knot but need to hone their skills for the reception can join a “wedding class.” And dancers of all skill sets can get in some practice rounds at the weekly open dance for a $10 cover. 8558 W. Third St., W. Hlywd. (310) 275-4683, 3rdstreetdance.com.
