From awkward on the dance floor to smoooooth operator…

Romance Your Partner With the Slow Dance in the Next 5 Weeks or Less Guaranteed!

Yes! Sign me up!

What if, in five weeks or less, you could walk onto a dance floor and…

  • Have complete confidence in your dancing skills?

  • Get that special someone to dance with you?

  • Or sweep your partner off their feet?

  • Experience a romantic connection as you work to create something beautiful?

  • Reconnect and communicate through something other than words?

During this time of seclusion, anxiety, and loneliness, we all need something to lift us up and get us moving in a positive way. Dancing is magical!

The problem is…

In order to feel less awkward on the dance floor and more connected to your partner, you know you need to take dance lessons; however, you are constantly thinking to yourself:

  • “I don’t want to look like a fool.”

  • “I’ll never be able to learn how to do it right.”

  • “No one will want to dance with me.”

  • “I’ll step all over my partner’s feet.”

  • “Maybe I’m too old to learn this.”

  • “It’ll take too long for me to be good enough.”


  • Igniting romance through Slow Dance without any embarrassment, stress or even having to leave your home!
  • Knowing exactly what steps to take.
  • Knowing how to execute dips and twirls.
  • Spending date night doing your new dance moves instead of in front of the TV.
  • Seeing that giant smile on your partner’s face.
  • Feeling confident in your groove and moves.
  • Knowing what to do when you “screw up” to turn it into a fun, enjoyable moment.
  • Looking forward to wedding receptions and other special events with dancing.

“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”

Sharon Williams Martinez, Student


Testimonial from Heather Abbott, Canada

“He [Heather’s husband] hates dancing. To put it bluntly, he’s so uncomfortable when you ask him to dance. So, he will, with me alone preferably, with the lights out, but he did get on a dance floor with me at one point, and he had enough drinks in him, he should have loosened up a tiny bit but, no, I went to reach for his hand and he just had it stiff at his side, and I was like, okay we’re done. And that’s so typical of most men, but he picked it up so fast Melanie! I’m so impressed. The first night we did the It’s All in the Knees video and we practiced for half an hour, and by the end of it, he was moving me around the room. I knew where he wanted me to go from his knees. He was a little sore afterwards, but he was excited about it. We’re having fun, we’re laughing our way through it. He’s actually enjoying it!” – Heather Abbott

Meet the Teacher

Hi, I’m Melanie Dale, the fun lady behind “Master the Slow Dance” and the creator of Ballroom Dance Mentor, a virtual service for people who want to learn from the comfort of their home or club.

I have been operating A Step to Gold International Ballroom in Raleigh, NC for 18 years and absolutely love my students who have been studying with me for mostly over 12 years. With over 35 years of experience in the business I have trained professionals for years and have an extensive background in American and International styles of ballroom dancing. I have had the honor of working with many of the GREATS from Europe and the US including my former husband, the legendary, Larry Silvers, United States, 10-Dance Champion for many years.

I am really thrilled to be able to offer this program and hope it will bring you lasting memories of joy!


How long will I have access to the program?

You will have access for LIFE!

How long are the modules?

Each module takes about an hour to complete.

How long should I practice for each week?

You should practice no less than one hour per week in addition to your learning. This will help your Q&A sessions be more productive. Remember, you can bring any questions to the calls.

Suppose I can’t learn it all?

Everyone is on a different learning curve so don’t worry if you cannot do everything in 5 weeks, very few people can.

Where can I go dancing?

Depending on where you live, there may be some ballrooms accessible in your location. If not, your start your own dance club and find somewhere that will accommodate you.

What if I’m new to this whole ballroom dance thing?

You’re who this class is for! Master the Elements, your bonus videos, will help you be able to accomplish this course quicker and easier. If you can practice the exercises in this prep course, you will be able to confidently perform the Slow Dance and other social dances.

Can I just learn this stuff for free on Youtube?

The amount of Slow dance instruction is very limited on YouTube. In addition, you will have a community that will help you through your challenges and you will be able to receive personalized feedback from a professional instructor.

What if I am too busy?


Due to this being a virtual course, you have much more flexibility than if you were part of an in-person class. It is recommended that you show up for the bi-weekly Q&A calls. Otherwise, you can learn at your own pace!

Real people. Real experiences.

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.

“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.”

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.”
