Here’s what our dancers are saying:

 Jeanette Corrao Whalen 
I don’t do ballroom (yet!) but I’m very joyful when I’m tap dancing with a group of dancers who are joyful as well, fun to be with, love learning, can laugh at themselves as I’m laughing at myself, unafraid to try hard things, maybe failing but trying again. Learning from a professional, trying to be the best I can be, performing and bringing happiness to others, and the friendships made along the way….all just awesome.

Sharon Williams Martinez
Connecting and FUN. My hubby and I connected in a different way through dance that I just don’t think you can in any other way. It’s hard to put into words. We laughed every week.

Maureen E Oakes
Comforting, because when I go to the studio, it is like entering Brigadoon. The world melts away for a time.

Professional Testimonies

“Dancing for me as a lost kid gave me the direction, dedication, and meaning to life that I so needed as a teenager.  If it weren’t for the persistence of my friends to get me to a dance class, I have no idea where I would be today.  Dancing has not only given me confidence, but I have also met the woman of my dreams through ballroom dancing.  Under great teaching techniques by Melanie Dale, I learned so quickly and easily. that in no time I was moving and grooving on the dance floor.  Not only did she teach me to be a good social dancer, she also coached me to become a U.S. Amateur Latin Champion.  For that, I will always be grateful.  If it wasn’t for Melanie I wouldn’t be where I am today in life, dancing and business.  I would highly recommend Melanie Dale for everyone to take lessons from her.”

Tommy Ditommaso founded the famed Florida Dance Classic Series, organizes ballroom dance cruises through Elegant Adventures, and is a highly sought-after competition judge and adjudicator.

“I have known Melanie Dale for over 25 years and consider her a consummate professional in every way.  She is extremely energetic and encouraging to anyone that she works with.  Her passion for dance and people carries her through each day and she is relentless when it comes to setting and completing her goals.  Melanie is fair and ethical, inspiring, conscientious, and self-disciplined and anyone that she trains is lucky to have the opportunity.”

Victoria Regan is a former US Latin Champion, 5X Canadian Ballroom and Latin Champion, North American 10-Dance Champion and British Latin Finalist.  Broadway credits include the Original Cast of “42nd Street” and the Broadway and National Tour of “Grand Hotel”.

“Melanie has studied under some of the best teachers in the country.  She has studied hard and she is a terrific teacher who cares about people, who cares about what they’re doing and, who sincerely gives 100% of herself to the art of dancing.”
