Salsa Lessons NYC Tango NYC Swing NYC Audition Space & Rehearsal Space NYC ... ABOUT Our Studio

Dance Manhattan closed its physical studios, after 22 years, in December 2014. We, along with many of our talented & devoted instructors, have joined forces with You Should Be Dancing...! studios. We are happy to support these instructors in their new home with our colleagues and friends at YSBD...!.

We ALL share one mission for dance classes offered in New York City
To provide the best possible atmosphere for learning and having fun. The objective is for each student to be inspired to grow, learn & express themselves creatively . . . making new friends in the process.

Our motto, "Don't talk to strangers, Dance with them!"
, explains why we all continue to provide a great place to meet new people and make new friends. What better way to get to know someone than by dancing with them? With or without a partner, come join us...we invite you to learn to social dance and establish a connection with another person on the dance floor. Forget the stress and strain of everyday life...chat and dance in a casual atmosphere and make friends and partners to last a lifetime! From one-day crash courses to weekly classes and events, we offer something for everyone, at every age!

Learning Environment in our Dance Classes & Lessons and at our Special Events :
Join us in in the most safe, comfortable environment in New York City to learn and perfect Social Ballroom, Swing, Argentine Tango and Latin dancing. Our instructors offer a full range of classes and host social dance parties and practices to foster social aspects of these dances. Our very popular events include monthly Theme Fridays and Saturdays in Salsa, Hustle, Tango and Ballroom/Swing; and weekly parties and practices including West Coast Swing Wednesdays, two wonderful Tango Practicas: Tango Playground (Monday) and Tango Cafe (Wednesdays), and Swing/Balboa Tuesdays.

Our instructors are the best of the best - not only wonderful teachers of dance but talented, experienced, award winning performers! You have seen them on Broadway, Off-Broadway, in films, in commercials, on tour, in music videos, and on the winner's platform at every major dance competition in the United States and abroad! These talented artists are friendly, versatile, and truly care about teaching you how to dance. Click Instructors to find out more about them individually.
