"I Melanie Dale, have 33 years of some of the best teaching and dance training in the ballroom industry. Previously trained by some of the greats in ballet and jazz dance, she married one of the gurus of Ballroom Dance in America, Larry Silvers. She teaches you in the comfort of your home, with video chats and critiques and has proven ways of conveying her teaching methodology.
“Melanie prepared videos for us ahead of time to use for practice. This allowed us to review our choreography when we were not working one-on-one with Melanie. Our Skype sessions were personalized and tailored for us. Melanie was able to see what we learned through our practice and give us constructive feedback. The best part was receiving private instruction right from our home hundreds of miles away!”

“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.”

The following testimonials make me full of joy and encourage me to reach out to others.
“I loved music but was frustrated in not being able to express myself. I took dance lessons for my son’s wedding and continued after that. I now have good posture and good exercise, and have met many great people. I am much more active socially. With a good waltz or rumba I feel expansive. I recommend dancing to my friends all the time and I know everyone can dance. Some faster than others but everyone can dance.”
Tom (Chemical Engineer)
“Dancing for me as a lost kid, gave me 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 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 & 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 & business. I would highly recommend Melanie Dale for everyone to take lessons from her.”—Previous US Junior Champion, Owner of The Florida Classic Series one-day Competitions and Cruises. Tommy DiTommaso"
