Dance Classes for Everyone: Salsa, Swing, Ballroom, Latin Dance, Wedding Dance and More.

"After our dance lessons with you, we went to a wedding. My girlfriend said it was the first time she's ever danced at a wedding, and that she actually enjoyed herself; it was not what she expected. So, thanks for making the dancing easy, accessible, and fun... even for someone who thought she'd NEVER dance." Pat S., Cambridge, MA

We were awarded an "A" rating and Super Service Award on Angie's List!

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. Tim. B., Dorchester, MA

Salsa! You can't hear the music and not dance! Join us for a super fun class where you'll fall in love with the exhilarating salsa. You'll learn the mambo style (forward-back) basic step, cross-body leads, spins, and more, plus a little playful Bachata. No experience needed. (But if you have some salsa dance experience, this will be a great opportunity to learn some new moves.) There's nothing more exciting than learning and mastering enough well-executed salsa moves (and a little bachata) 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 necessary. But folks who know a little salsa will also gain plenty of new skills. (This class will not repeat any material from our last two terms.)

For current COVID-19 safety: everyone will need to sign up with a dance partner, which means bring a friend! (Or your sweetie.) Wear an N95 or KN-95 mask that fits well; and show proof of vaccination.

We create a friendly, no-pressure and unpretentious atmosphere for optimum learning. Join the fun!

If you need to miss any classes, no worries, we'll review every week in class.

You'll love learning swing (also known as lindy or lindy hop), the dance that's rocking dance floors everywhere; you'll wish you hadn't waited so long! Learn the secrets to smooth leading and following, and discover the most important spins. Swing is the happiest dance around; just try and worry while swinging! No experience necessary. It's a very forgiving dance, and easy to learn.

We just agreed to go out dancing on New Year's eve. I would have never done this before taking lessons with Liz. I highly recommend her - especially if you are new to dancing and certainly if you, like me, have felt as though it is impossible to learn. She is funny, lively, and she is an expert in teaching novices. If you are considering dance lessons, I recommend that you give Liz a try. She makes it easy. I got more than my money's worth. J. Britt, Newton, MA

"Liz is the best teacher I've ever had; not just in dancing, but in anything." Kevin M., Newton, MA

A recent review on Angie's List:

"My girlfriend and I took 10 lessons in merengue and salsa from Liz. I had never succeeded in dancing, despite many efforts, prior to taking these lessons.
I am a self-confessed, lifelong failure at dancing. It looks like it could be fun and it has been important, in each of my relationships, that dancing become a part of our time away from kids, work, and responsibility. I have taken salsa and swing lessons many times and, each time, I have completely embarrassed myself. I am not a natural at this and I grew to hate the thought of dancing, dance lessons, etc.
I am now settled and my life partner has desperately wanted me to learn to dance. After several years of avoidance, I reluctantly agreed to sign up for 10 lessons with Liz Nania at Out to Dance.
Bottom line: by the 4th or 5th lesson I started to enjoy it. By the 7th or 8th lesson, I could actually dance. Fred Astaire, I'm not. But I'm good enough to have fun and not embarrass myself. And, for my girlfriend, it is important. We just agreed to go out dancing on New Year's eve. I would have never done this before taking lessons with Liz. I highly recommend her - especially if you are new to dancing and certainly if you, like me, have felt as though it is impossible to learn. She is funny, lively, and she is an expert in teaching novices. If you are considering dance lessons, I recommend that you give Liz a try. She makes it easy. I got more than my money's worth." J. Britt, Newton, MA

"Cutting loose on the dance floor in the company of kindred spirits is one of the most energizing, healing, and affirming things you can do for yourself. Dancing is a proven stress-relieving action that can help heal and strengthen your body, mind and spirit. When you dance, you're throwing a wild party of endorphins inside yourself. And we can all surely use a good, strong dose of healthy endorphins right now to help us face a world of troubles!"

Liz Nania, Director, OUT to Dance
