Describing a dance in words is like texting someone instructions for tying a tie—it's way easier just to demonstrate it. Perhaps that's why DanceSport VA's website is peppered not with written descriptions, but with a series of videos that introduce the steps of most of the 35 styles of dance that the studio teaches, from the tango to the foxtrot to the jitterbug. The videos provide a small taste of what students can expect if they sign up for one-on-one or group lessons or attend the dance parties that take place every Friday night. They're also a glimpse of the studio's space, which consists of one 3,000-square-foot room and one 1,200-square-foot room, each outfitted with maple-wood floating floors that are cushioned underneath to prevent knee and joint injuries. The studio also sells men's and women's dance shoes and new and pre-owned ball gowns so that dancers don't have to stare forlornly out the window until enchanted birds sew them appropriate attire.
