The new studio is finally finished and open for business! I really appreciate all of the kind compliments on the dance floor and the new décor. If you haven’t been out to see the studio yet, please make plans to attend a group class or dance soon and let me know what you think!!

I would also like to sincerely thank everyone who volunteered their time and resources to help me get the studio renovated so quickly. I couldn’t have done it without you!!

There have had a few questions about our location. The new studio is located on US-41, just north of Pine Ridge Road on the right-hand side of US-41. Our building is situated between Allison Craig Home Furnishings and the Masonic Temple. You will see three arches at the front of the building. The studio is located behind the three arches. A link to a map showing our location can be found on the “Directions” tab on this website if you need more help.

If you have any problems finding the studio, please give me a call at 239-597-7012!

Please check the calendar and join us soon for a group class or Saturday Night Dance Party. Private lessons are also offered if you would like some one-on-one training to learn a new dance, for a special event, or even to prepare for competition. No partner is required for any of our group classes, dances, or private lessons!

Dance Parties and Group Classes are open to everyone!

Remember – no partner is required!

Group Classes are $15 for a two-hour class. Admission charge is $15 per person for the Saturday Night Dances. A wide variety of music suitable for all kinds of Ballroom and Latin dance is played for the parties: Fox Trot, Waltz, Rumba, Samba, East and West Coast Swing, Salsa, Merengue, ChaCha and many, many more!

I am always open to suggestions! Please let me know if you have suggestions to improve the Group Classes or the dances or anything else!

I hope to see you soon~!

Marcia
