Dancing With A Star: Chaz Bono and Liz Nania at the Copley Marriott in Boston.
LGBT Dance Classes
This is "the place" for dance lessons in Boston. Liz Nania is amazing and I'd give her 6 stars if I could. My partner and I started taking lessons this winter, and with Liz's help I've gone from avoiding the dance floor to looking forward to dance in just a few sessions. She is knowledgeable and patient, and focuses on what you are doing right before moving on to ideas to make you even better.
Her class is the perfect end/beginning to the work week, and it seems she also has a strange telekinetic ability to attract some of the nicest people I have ever met to her classes. :-) In addition, her rates are extremely affordable and she offers discounts for taking more than one class in a term.

Instructor Liz Nania, Director of OUT to Dance. You'll love learning the hottest dances worldwide: salsa is a beautiful, sexy and elegant dance, and merengue is incredibly simple, upbeat and intuitive. If you don't already know and love salsa music, you will; and merengue can be danced to most any club or dance party music, besides merengue music! There's nothing more exhilarating than learning and mastering enough well-executed salsa and merengue moves to dance with confidence at any party, social event or salsa club. Experience the joy of Latin dancing and find out how fun it really is. Absolutely no dance experience or partner necessary. But folks who know a little salsa or merengue will also gain plenty of new skills. (This class makes a fantastic holiday gift! Ask us about gift certificates.)
Our classes are legendary for being friendly and attitude-free. (If you need to miss any classes, you are entitled to one free drop-in class at any of our classes at your level, this term or next.) And no worries, we'll review every week in class! Beat the Sunday night blues and join us.
Liz is an exceptional dance instructor. She can turn the most skeptical "two left feeter" into a dancer in no time. Her ability to put you at ease is legendary. Her classes are always fun, educational and a great value. These classes are worth the drive from anywhere. Ciara Gogan, Quincy, MA
