I give Melanie Dale and A Step To Gold International Ballroom a “five-star” rating! I have known Melanie for more than 20 years, and she is absolutely incredible! Not only is she an accomplished dancer and instructor, but she is one of the most dedicated individuals I have ever met! My husband and I began taking private and group lessons from Melanie at her first dance studio, a tiny, one-room building in downtown Wendell. We were beginning dancers without much talent, but Melanie was always patient and encouraging, and we gradually made progress. After a few years, we witnessed the evolution of Melanie’s dream – the creation of a beautiful, world-class ballroom studio in Raleigh! After an extensive search for the perfect location, she finally selected a lovely venue overlooking the Pleasant Valley Promenade and proceeded to hire other outstanding ballroom teachers to assist her with the growing number of students. The development of this new studio took a huge amount of work, but Melanie was determined and worked very hard to make her dream become reality! Over the years, Melanie has put her heart and soul into the development of this model studio, and her efforts have paid off. A Step To Gold International Ballroom is now considered one of the top ballroom studios in North Carolina, with dozens of excellent dance instructors and numerous students. If you are student searching for a ballroom dance school, this is the place for you! Whether you are seeking to compete in Dance Sport or just want to dance socially, you could not find a better learning environment! The instructors are talented, the staff is very helpful, and the environment is friendly. The group classes and dance parties are really fun and a great way to meet other nice dancers! Congratulations, Melanie, on creating a little “ballroom paradise” in Raleigh!"
