"After our dance lessons with you, we went to a wedding. My girlfriend said it was the first time she's ever danced at a wedding, and that she actually enjoyed herself; it was not what she expected. So, thanks for making the dancing easy, accessible, and fun... even for someone who thought she'd NEVER dance." Pat S., Cambridge, MA

2017 Dance Classes:

This is "the place" for dance lessons in Boston.  Liz Nania is amazing and I'd give her 6 stars if I could.  My partner and I started taking lessons this winter, and with Liz's help I've gone from avoiding the dance floor to looking forward to dance in just a few sessions.  She is knowledgeable and patient, and focuses on what you are doing right before moving on to ideas to make you even better.    
Her class is the perfect end/beginning to the work week, and it seems she also has a strange telekinetic ability to attract some of the nicest people I have ever met to her classes.  :-)  In addition, her rates are extremely affordable and she offers discounts for taking more than one class in a term. Tim. B., Dorchester, MA

Dance Classes for Everybody:

All New Salsa (with a little Bachata): Mon. Jan. 30-Apr. 3; 8-9 pm, 8 classes. (No classes 2/20 & 27.) West Roxbury School of Dance, 49 Corey St., West Roxbury, MA. $119 per person earlybird rate if registered at least 1 week before class begins, or $129 per person regular rate. (Take $15 off your 2nd dance class, per person per term.)

Register for Belly DancingInstructor Liz Nania, Director of OUT to Dance. (This class is ideal for both folks who are totally new to salsa, and also those who have taken a previous salsa class with us, since we will not repeat much material taught in our last two terms, except for the all-important basics.)

You'll love learning the hottest dances worldwide: salsa is a beautiful, sexy and elegant dance, and bachata is romantic and becoming super trendy. If you don't already know and love salsa music, you will! There's nothing more exhilarating than mastering enough well-executed salsa moves to dance with confidence at any party, social event or salsa club. If you've never tried salsa, this is the perfect class for you, and you'll probably fall in love with the dance. If you know only a little salsa, you'll learn much more, like the mambo style (forward-back) basic step, cross-body leads, traveling spins and more. (This class will not repeat any material from our last two terms other than the basic step, and we'll learn a little bachata. Absolutely no experience is needed, as we will all learn the basic footwork.) We create a friendly and no-pressure atmosphere for optimum learning and fun. Absolutely no dance experience or partner necessary. Join the fun! Take both Swing and Salsa for a complete dance night out and save $15.

Our classes are legendary for being friendly and attitude-free. (If you need to miss any classes, you are entitled to one free drop-in class at any of our classes at your level, this term or next.) And no worries, we'll review every week in class.

Treat yourself to some big fun, with a bonus of learning a lifetime skill. Imagine looking forward to Mondays!

Register for Belly DancingInstructor Liz Nania, Director of OUT to Dance.

You'll love learning swing (also known as lindy or lindy hop), the dance that's rocking dance floors everywhere; you'll wish you hadn't waited so long! Swing is ridiculously fun and really useful; after just 8 weeks you'll be ready to hit one of the local swing dance venues, or impress everyone at the next party or wedding. Learn the secrets to smooth leading and following, and discover the most important spins. It's easier than you'd imagine. Swing is the happiest dance around; just try and worry while swinging. :) Give yourself a reason to look forward to Mondays! No experience or partner necessary.

(Take a 2nd class and save $15; you'll wonder how an hour can go by so quickly.) Beat the Monday blues and join us!

(If you need to miss any classes, you are entitled to one free drop-in class at any of our classes at your level, this term or next.) And no worries, we'll review every week in class.

We just agreed to go out dancing on New Year's eve. I would have never done this before taking lessons with Liz. I highly recommend her - especially if you are new to dancing and certainly if you, like me, have felt as though it is impossible to learn. She is funny, lively, and she is an expert in teaching novices. If you are considering dance lessons, I recommend that you give Liz a try. She makes it easy. I got more than my money's worth. J. Britt, Newton, MA

Our most recent review on Angie's List:

"My girlfriend and I took 10 lessons in merengue and salsa from Liz. I had never succeeded in dancing, despite many efforts, prior to taking these lessons.
I am a self-confessed, lifelong failure at dancing. It looks like it could be fun and it has been important, in each of my relationships, that dancing become a part of our time away from kids, work, and responsibility. I have taken salsa and swing lessons many times and, each time, I have completely embarrassed myself. I am not a natural at this and I grew to hate the thought of dancing, dance lessons, etc.
I am now settled and my life partner has desperately wanted me to learn to dance. After several years of avoidance, I reluctantly agreed to sign up for 10 lessons with Liz Nania at Out to Dance.
Bottom line: by the 4th or 5th lesson I started to enjoy it. By the 7th or 8th lesson, I could actually dance. Fred Astaire, I'm not. But I'm good enough to have fun and not embarrass myself. And, for my girlfriend, it is important. We just agreed to go out dancing on New Year's eve. I would have never done this before taking lessons with Liz. I highly recommend her - especially if you are new to dancing and certainly if you, like me, have felt as though it is impossible to learn. She is funny, lively, and she is an expert in teaching novices. If you are considering dance lessons, I recommend that you give Liz a try. She makes it easy. I got more than my money's worth." J. Britt, Newton, MA

"Cutting loose on the dance floor in the company of kindred spirits is one of the most energizing, healing, and affirming things you can do for yourself. Dancing is a proven stress-relieving action that can help heal and strengthen your body, mind and spirit. When you dance, you're throwing a wild party of endorphins inside yourself. And we can all surely use a good, strong dose of healthy endorphins right now to help us face a world of troubles!"

Liz Nania, Director, OUT to Dance
