Quality Education

We strive for your premier education and ours too. Progressively mastering our skills with professionals all around the world so we can bring it directly, to you.

Special Events

Experiences and events that are unique to our community. From the real Dancing with the Stars to celebrity stage shows, we step it up a notch and put Tucson on the map of stardom.

Full Service

From dance shoes to dance competitions, we provide opportunities for you to experience the full spectrum of dancing. Every step of the way we will ensure your service is none other than VIP.

Good dance education consists primarily of private dance lessons with education tailored directly to what you want to do, how you want to use your dancing and what kind of dancer you want to be (functional, comfortable, confident or competitive).

Most students never think they would want to compete or even perform. Nonetheless ask a stranger to cut a rug. You will find that the fear of those things quickly fade. Your training will prepare you to achieve anything your heart desires. Whether that is dancing with the one you love or socializing with new found friends, performing to your favorite song, or striving to be the very best at a world class event.


We are practitioners.

We DO what we teach every, single, day.
