Lots of fun and great staff!
I've been taking dance lessons at SHDA for over a year now and I can only say the experience has been truly amazing. The staff is friendly and engaging, and very skilled at teaching not only the steps of the dance (foxtrot, waltz, etc) but more importantly, the feel of the dance. Dance isn't meant to be a rigid series of steps, which is what I've felt like at other places, it's meant to be a flowing movement to music with a partner. I can honestly say that before I walked in I couldn't tell a waltz song from rumba or Quickstep. Knowing the difference and knowing the steps has really boosted my confidence, and I am comfortable leading a girl to dance at weddings a

Unique, charming and REAL – So, I've taken dance lessons at a few places, some good some not so good. Society Hill Dance Academy was the first place I ever truly felt like a person.
Social dancing can be intimidating for beginners or casual dancers. Nothing is worse than being asked to dance and getting that frustrated look or worse getting into an argument. So, when a friend invited me to their Friday night party, I was a little hesitant to get out on the floor. But by my 4th dance, I was totally relaxed. It was so not about showing off it was about having fun! Even the obviously advanced dancers were really accomodating and polite. I signed up for lessons that very night and haven't ever l

My daughters didnt really care for this place. One is 5 and the other is 7. They came home and decided they would like to try somewhere else. They liked the staff but just didnt care if they went back or not.

Best dance studio in town – A friend of mine recommended the studio to me last year as the "best dance studio" in town. I have to agree. I love this place. I do not have enough good things to say about it; excellent teachers, beautiful space, friendly staff; great music. I took several group classes (salsa, tango, etc) and the space was more than adequate for our purposes. Especially compared to other studios in town, the space could be considered "huge":) The prices are cheaper as well. There are classes for Singles; for kids, for wedding couples, in addition to general group classes-even hip hop and tap (my favorite) The only minus I can think of is that dancing is addictive:)

amazing place! – We came in unsure of what to expect. Being new to dance, we were nervous, but our wonderful instructor put us at ease. We learned so much & had such fun in our first lesson that we decided to come back every week! The space is beautiful and Shana made us feel so welcome!
