About the Studio

Our studio is one of the largest ballroom dance studios in New Jersey, featuring a special 2200 square-foot, floating hardwood dance floor, imported from Europe. Two fully mirrored walls further enhance your dancing, and a professional sound system with an excellent choice of music complete the dancing experience. Many of our students began with the hope of not being embarassed at an upcoming social function, and enjoyed dancing so much that they now practice regularly and compete in professional dance competitions. In addition to having access to professional instruction, all members of our studio are welcome into our studio at any time to practice on their own or to socialize with other dancers.
