More than 25 years ago, Marcy McHenry founded the Dancers Studio to put her 30 years of dance experience to good use. The studio’s three ballrooms spread out over 6,500 square feet of arm-flinging, leg-kicking room. Upon the shiny, lacquered hardwood, a staff of trained instructors guides students of all skill levels through ballroom, Latin, social, and special-event dance routines. During group lessons, the instructors cultivate a noncompetitive atmosphere where their pupils can thrive in styles such as the tango and west coast swing. In private lessons students can fine-tune techniques, learn extra-challenging new steps, or find out what Fred Astaire’s favorite ice-cream flavor was during their one-on-one time with an instructor. Those looking to show off their new moves can get down on Thursday evenings when the studio's DJ Chris spins a variety of tunes for pupils to kick their heels up to for an hour.

The studio also encourages dancers to maintain healthy physiques in Pilates, Zumba, and yoga classes. Clients can sculpt long, lean muscles and strong cores in a Pilates session, or get heart rates thumping in Zumba classes that play energetic Latin tunes.

Bruce and Rebecca Abas have danced around the world, studying tango in Argentina, perfecting salsa moves in Cuba, and mastering swing steps throughout the United States. They bring their lifetime of training, teaching, and professional choreography experience to Four Seasons Dance Studio, where they work alongside a staff of seasoned and passionate dance instructors. Atop the hardwood floors of their spacious studio, the expert dancers lead group classes and private lessons in ballroom, Latin, tango, and swing styles. On the first weekend of the month, they host a dance party, where guests can showoff their newfound moves in front of fellow students.

In addition to group and private lessons, they specialize in wedding dance instruction, guiding couples through a choreographed swing dance set to their best-loved pop song or a formal waltz set to their favorite Grey Poupon jingle. The instructors also lead a variety of fitness-focused sessions, including Pilates and dance workouts inspired by Bollywood numbers.

Out in a Limb Dance Company & School's professional instructors introduce kids and adults to styles as various as classical ballet, modern dance, acrobatics, and hip-hop. School performances let students show off what they've learned to family, friends, and Barbies whose legs refuse to plié, while summer intensives let young bundles of energy immerse themselves in the choreography of a full-scale musical production. Ballroom classes help casual students get comfortable for wedding-mandated whirls about the dance floor and nights out at salsa clubs. Teachers come from backgrounds including the sets of musical theater productions, the Moscow Ballet, and training with Paula Abdul, and all work to create a disciplined, distraction-free environment by asking that students adhere to a formal code of etiquette.
