What was once Lil's Dancing School has now transformed into The Studio Dance & Pilates, thanks to a longtime Lil's teacher, June Coppola. Her lifelong journey with dance began at age 4, and after 23 years of teaching at Lil's, she got the chance to take it over and realize her dream of owning her own studio. Now, a multitude of experienced teachers, including a core group that has danced together for more than 25 years, lead classes in ballet, jazz, hip-hop, and contemporary dance for dancers of all ages. Coppola has also incorporated Pilates, yoga, and Zumba into the class offerings, giving her clients a chance to both hone their dance skills and tone their bodies.
Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired up with other classmates as the instructors assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.

Nieves Latin Dance Studio founder Wil Nieves was born with dance in his blood. Salsa music has been a tradition in his family for generations, cultivating a lifelong love of dance shared by his staff of dance instructors. In addition to salsa classes for dancers of all experience levels, the studio offers classes in hip-hop dancing, ballet, and bachata, a romantic dance from the Dominican Republic.
Westchester Ballroom Dance Studio's instructors all have more than a decade of teaching experience, so students might learn Latin dance from a three-time Russian National Dance champion or perfect the ins-and-outs of swing under a tutor who's toured with Wynton Marsalis. Instructors are experts at coaching students preparing to take to the floor at weddings. They're also passionate about helping beginners tap into dance's social and physical potential and readying advanced dancers for competitions, shows, and Nobel Prize acceptance speeches. After students learn their way around a new style's rhythms, regular socials give them a chance to show off rumbas and jives, often set to a DJ's beats.
