Cheryl L. Sington's interdisciplinary dance and fitness training has led her to study with, and sometimes even work with, famed figures such as John Landis, Michael Jackson, and Natalie Cole. As the owner of The Dance Warehouse, she passes on her experience in a setting that's professional, yet noncompetitive and fun-focused. Programs for children and adults span nearly every dance genre, including beginner through advanced training in jazz, tap, hip-hop, and ballet. The studio also branches out to include instruction in areas such as musical theater and acrobatics. To supplement these courses, The Dance Warehouse hosts special workshops and master classes, many led by guest choreographers.

The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studio, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
Modeled after The Juilliard School in New York, the Naples Performing Arts Center celebrates dance, drama, music, and film. When speaking with Fox 4 News, the center's owner proudly proclaimed it a facilitator for the "love of the arts for our children." Kids do receive ample opportunity for creative expression in the creative beginners program, which fosters a fun and supportive environment for preschoolers' imaginations to blossom with songs, stories, and future Internet dance crazes.
Both older children and adults can expand their creative capacities with classes and workshops that are both social and instructional. Dance lessons teach the choreography of Latin, swing, and ballroom dances, and music instruction legally marries hands and minds to the keys and strings of pianos, guitars, and violins. In the drama department, students can challenge themselves with the center's Broadway studio series.
Modern Steps School of Dance regularly waltzes across the line that separates art from all-out fun. The school’s experienced instructors lead private lessons, group classes, and spirited dance parties for all ages, from seniors to adolescents who only recently grew their fifth toes. Focusing exclusively on ballroom dance, instructors branch out to cover the many styles that fall under that large umbrella, including tango, fox trot, Viennese waltz, and swing. They draw on a rich history of dance tutelage—though the school was founded only two decades ago, its roots in Florida can be traced all the way back to 1513, when Juan Ponce de León tap-danced with joy upon his discovery of Disney World.
Director Michael Jasecki, a champion dancer from Poland, leads a team of professional instructors who teach a host of dance styles. Classes at Bradenton Dance Center, which has been open since 1994, range from waltz, salsa, and swing sessions to lessons focused on romantic couples' dances.
