Senior Couple Laughing and Having Fun Dancing


Our 45 minute private dance lessons are set up to create a customized 1 on 1 experience for each and every dancer that walks through our door. Our studio welcomes people of all ages! As dancers, whether just starting out or seasoned, we all desire different things when learning. For that reason, we have curated a custom approach to teaching you everything you should know! Whether you want to learn Salsa or Waltz, we ensure you that you’re in the right place.



Our group classes are a great way to not only learn and meet other dancers but to find comfort in dancing with others in the room. With a less personalized approach, group classes are slightly faster paced and focus on the group as a whole compared to private lessons. We always recommend starting out with a private lesson before joining group classes. In no time, you’ll be moving with ease!



Your special day is special to us! We want to ensure that you feel 110% confident in your dancing. You're most likely thinking, "we have two left one can help us." Trust me, it's never that bad! We will have you looking presentable and confident. Whether you are looking for a simple choreography or you want your soon-to-be honey flying through the air in a lift like Tom Cruise in Top Gun, we have got you covered.


"I don't know how to dance", "I don't want to embarrass myself." Guess what? This is the lesson for you! We want you to mess up! That's the only way to progress and understand how to do it right. In your first ever intro lesson, we take you through basic steps of a few various dances to get you moving and understanding how easy it can be to dance! No second thoughts. Just you, your instructor, and the dance floor.

Owner & Instructor

Born in Belgrade, Serbia, Zorana began dancing at the age of 8 at a local dance studio in her neighborhood. She started off with jazz, tap, ballet, hip hop, and contemporary. At the age of 11, she branched out and became part of SOKO, a Serbian Folk Dancing group in Chicago where she spent 7 years learning various dances and styles from different regions in Serbia. With this diversity under her belt, she decided to embark on a more serious journey and train in ballroom dancing at a local studio. She shortly discovered that she wanted to share this passion with others and took on ballroom dance instruction as a full time career. Apart from being a certified dance instructor, Zorana is also a current professional American Rhythm competitor who is motivated in sharing her journey with her students and teaching all levels of dancers!



Linda Xu is an accomplished bank executive who wholeheartedly embraces diversity and inclusion. She embarked on her competitive dance journey six years ago, and ballroom dancing has become her sanctuary of boundless joy. Amid life's trials, especially during the Covid era, dancing became, and has remained her ultimate stress-reliever. Her vision is to share her passion for dancing, promote happiness, well-being, and foster a close-knit community through the rhythm and unity of dance.

If you're somebody that LOVES competition and dancing against others at your level, these are for you! Whether you have a partner or you're dancing with one of our instructors, you'll have a great time! From local competitions to nationwide, we ensure our students have a blast.


Studio parties and open dancing are great ways to get better in smaller social settings. With plenty of floor time and partner rotation, these events are a great way to keep your skills polished and socialize with others in the dance community!


Looking to add some spice to your dancing? What better way than to try a performance? If you're not ready for a performance quite yet, come out and see others putting on a show! Break that fear, learn a new dance, and show others how far you've come. We love seeing our community grow!


Among many physical activities, dance is by far the most rewarding. It is a great workout and shows us how to be a more confident version of ourselves. It improves our expression, social skills, and spikes our dopamine levels. Dance is an all-around great workout as it targets resistance, mobility, speed, and more. It's everything you could want in a hobby.
