Lina was amazing! She has an excellent personality and easy manner. She's so enjoyable to work with. I was very nervous to dance and she immediately erased my nerves. She's very good at helping couples understand dance moves and making them feel at ease. The receptionist was very nice and friendly as well. The studio is in a very nice, convenient downtown area of Stamford. It's clean and nice looking. A very enjoyable experience. We hope to go back!
My instructor was Charlie, and he was wonderful. I may continue with the private lessons, but I will definitely go to their very reasonable group lessons and practice parties.
I'm a huge fan of Metropolitan Dance Center and the folks there.
Great place, excellent instructors. Use of groupon is very highly restricted though. On the phone they told me you can bring anyone to your lesson with you... but it turns out you can't bring anyone who has been to the studio before. Oh and if the person you bring has also bought a groupon, then they will forfeit their groupon by joining you at your lesson! So if you and a friend both buy the groupon, you will end up taking two separate lessons at the same time slot, but never getting to dance together! Which is really dumb - we both paid, we're both new to the studio, why can't we take lessons together?

About Metropolitan Dance Center
Named the 6th Best Thing to Do in Stamford by Mofflymedia.com, Metropolitan Dance Center has been in business in Stamford for more than 12 years. The owner, Steven Dougherty comes with a wealth of business and dance experience—featured on America’s Ballroom Challenge, a national and world dance champion, he has garnered a revered reputation within the ballroom community through his extensive knowledge and training. Backed by a team of certified instructors, they teach students to glide across the dance floor through their progressive curriculum, which is certified by the Dance Vision International Dance Association. They map students’ progress as they teach them to sway and samba through Latin and ballroom moves during group and private lessons. They also help couples to perfect their first newlywed spin across the dance floor with private wedding-dance lessons customized to the beat of the couple’s wedding song or first shared Morse-code message. The studio also hosts practice sessions, allowing burgeoning dancers to mix and mingle, practicing their new dance moves to a variety of tunes in a comfortable environment.
