Dance Pizazz’s experienced instructors foster a lively, vibrant dance-o-sphere during custom dance lessons fueled by gourmet eats from Quintessential Catering. Whether revitalizing date night or settling arguments between one’s two left feet, an evening of dinner and dancing bestows everyone form novice groovers to expert body shakers with a night of mingling and moving. A minimum of six dancing pairs begin the evening with appetizers at 6:30 p.m. followed by a 45-minute custom dance lesson, which teaches toes an array of social dance styles, from salsa and swing to the cha-cha.
Breaking at 7:45 p.m., feet glide from the intimate studio, which boasts lofty ceilings and custom-built floating hardwood flooring, to cozy up to tables for a 45-minute dinner break. Dancers can kick back with a glass of wine before digging into a meat or veggie gourmet entree. Instructors cap off the evening with an open dance party in which partners can practice freshly taught moves or imitate dual gyroscopes before winding down with desserts and coffee until 10 p.m.
Dance Pizazz owner Nikki McElvain believes that dancing is not just a fun way to spend an evening, but a way to celebrate life. Boasting more than a decade of experience gracefully swirling across dance floors, she now shares her fancy footwork with patrons of all skill levels at her own studio. She invites teens, adults, and seniors to explore the dance styles of ballroom, Latin, and swing on the studio's floating dance floor, whose low-impact surface relieves feet and joints. Singles and couples hone their technique in group or private lessons, and newly-weds-to-be can prepare for their first dance in wedding-oriented programs. To simulate a real-world dance setting, Nikki turns on the studio’s LED nightclub lights and releases Richard Simmons for evening social dances, where students can gather to show off their newly learned moves.
