Dance Immersion

Have you ever fantasized about how joyful it would be to immerse yourself in dance for just a short time and watch yourself become a smooth and stylish dancer?

shall we dance,richard gere,jennifer lopezWere you intrigued by the reality TV series Dancing With the Stars or So You Think You Can Dance seeing non-dancing celebrities emerge as incredibly sophisticated and elegant dancers in ten weeks or less after partnering with a ballroom dance professional?

Do you remember the classic dance movies Dirty Dancing, Shall We Dance, and Dance With Me – all tapping into one's unrealized potential through a brief period of intensive and exhilarating training?

If your toes are already moving and your heart is rhythmically beating, take hold of your inspiration and make your dream a reality. I have coached hundreds of caterpillars to become butterflies. Check out our Reviews!

Dance Classes or Dance Immersion?

If you're looking for a wonderful night out with your partner or on your own, our eight-week classes in swing, ballroom, salsa and country dancing are the perfect way for you to experience the joys of dance in a relaxed social setting.

But if you want to excel on the dance floor very quickly, impress your family, friends or partner, and explore all your latent potential as a dancer and take it to the limit, our Dance Immersion is the program for the two of you.

Dance Immersion Program

Definitely not designed for only the “gifted and talented.” In my 25 years of teaching people of all ages and backgrounds to dance, I have learned that partner dancing is a skill that can be mastered by anyone of any ability who is motivated to learn. If you want to do it, you can!

You and your partner will choose the dance styles that excite you (swing, salsa, foxtrot, tango, waltz, merengue, cha cha, rhumba, west coast swing, country two-step, or slow dancing,). Then we'll start with foundational dance steps and focus on your dance frame, weight changes, footwork, timing, leading/following skills, and spins – building your repertoire step by step. When you “graduate” from the program, you'll both emerge as skilled and smooth dancers, ready to hit the dance floor at any social event with joy and confidence. You'll wonder why you waited so long to learn!

The Dance Studio

As your instructor, I create a supportive and encouraging learning environment. I bring 25 years of experience teaching people of all ages, abilities, genders, body sizes and levels of experience to dance. You'll be dancing in OUT to Dance's newly-renovated Roslindale studio with an immaculate Select Canadian Maple solid hardwood floor, the most comfortable for our bodies to dance on and the best for spins. The studio is conveniently located on the Jamaica Plain line near Forest Hills and is accessible by public transportation.
