Since the new owners Paulo and Christian took over in 2013, the place is awesome, it has been renovated, the new instructors are very talented and friendly. My dancing has improved so much, I have stepped up to a higher level of ballroom dancing and love to compete! My instructor is amazing and we have a great partnership . I also want to mention how much fun the dance parties are on Friday night. It’s a great time to dance and meet people!”  Shirley J. ( Unionville, CT )
