Our purpose is all about adding positive changes to your life through dancing.

With years of experience, we have discovered that when people look for dance lessons they, in fact, want something more than learning how to dance. “Something more” may include  making new friends and socializing, learning a new skill as part of personal growth or exercising. Or it could be impressing one’s friends on any dance floor, feeling more in touch with their significant other by dancing together, finding a deeper connection with oneself, and more.

Whatever the reason is, it is our duty to help you achieve that. Our experienced Dance Instructors find an individual approach to each and every of our students based on their learning style, personality, goals and dreams.

Be prepared that with dancing your life is about to change for the better and will never be the same again. Access Ballroom is more than just a dance school. It is an opportunity for you to grow, find a deeper connection with yourself and others, as well as feel happier.

“I used to dread going to dances and dance classes, but today I am loving it.”

“[Access Ballroom made] a two right feet white guy into a dancing student who finally understands that many dances have similar steps or moves. The studio atmosphere is hopping with energy every night; the group classes and practice parties make you practice what you learned and the private classes perfect your craft. I used to dread going to dances and dance classes, but today I am loving it.”
