Manhattan Ballroom Dance’s team of world-class competitors and choreographers works to sharpen the rug-cutting capabilities of its students inside a carefully designed open studio. In one-hour drop-in [classes](http://gr.pn/nGFcU7) designed to accommodate busy lifestyles, the dance-floor conquistadors unveil classical movements of international and American ballroom dance, as well as sultry Latin steps and dignified chicken dances. Dancers of all ages and abilities can sashay across the ticklish surface of a 3,000-square-foot dance floor during Tuesday and Wednesday evening Latin classes with multinational, professional champion Oksana Zolotarevskaya, or twirl before mirrors stocked with smiling reflections during Thursday and Sunday ballroom classes. Alternately, 55-minute private lessons also allow instructors to focus on the specific needs of each dancer, such as preparing for a wedding dance or learning to soft-shoe secret messages in Morse code. Neither group nor private lessons require a partner.

Tall windows fill two walls of Manhattan Ballroom Dance's second-story aerie, sending sunlight sprawling across a 3,000-square-foot hardwood dance floor. Most hours of the day find the studio aflutter with elegant moves led by a staff of international competitive dancers, including globetrotting Latin and mambo champion Oksana Zolotarevskaya. On Saturday evenings, ballroom socials bring students together for class showcases, and refreshments.
