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!

And by that I mean… 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?

We all want to experience romance no matter the time in our lives. Dancing provides a way for you and your partner to learn together and feel a connection as you work to create something beautiful. This allows you to 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!

Only problem is…

In order to grow closer and be a more confident dance partner, you need to take each component, step by step (literally).

However, you’re constantly thinking to yourself:

  • “I won’t be able to keep up.”

  • “I am too old to learn something new.”

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

  • “I am not confident enough.”

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

  • ” I don’t have enough time.”


Having a newly ignited romance with your partner without the large time commitment of a traditional dance class, without the stress, and without having to leave your home!

  • Wanting to practice your new dance moves instead of another boring night of being on the couch or working alone.

  • Having a more exciting relationship with your partner

  • Gliding around the dance floor relaxed and carefree 

  • Never being a wallflower again…becoming confident in your dancing

  • Having step-by-step videos you can access at any time you’re free

If you would like to ignite romance and build a stronger connection with your partner, I have the perfect solution for you…

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 running 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 session be more productive.

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.

Can I just learn this stuff for free on Youtube?

The amount of Slow dance instruction is very limited on Youtube. In addition, you do not have a community that will help you through your challenges and you will also not be able to recieve 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. The only thing you will have to show up for at a specific time is the Q&A calls. Otherwise, you can use the freedom to work 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.

Professional Testimonies

Tommy Ditommaso
Tommy DitommasoCompetition Judge and Adjudicator
“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.”
Victoria Reagan

“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.”

“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.”
