Founded by world-class duo Igor and Svetlana Iskhakov, Dance Centre is dedicated to the empowerment and physical fitness of the everyday person via the art of dance. The studio features both high-level instruction for budding Baryshnikovs as well as a host of beginner-friendly classes in a variety of dance styles. Group classes consisting of as few as five pupils practice basic steps within the Gahanna facility's grand 6,000 square feet of studio space, the perfect place for dancing and drag racing floor buffers. Igor and Svetlana also host regular practice parties for their students, which present festive opportunities to show off new skills in a no-pressure social setting or mingle with accomplished star students.
As competitive ballroom dancers and coaches of the ballroom dance team at Ohio State University, Alex Thomas and Josh Tilford believe any person can reach their dance goals in the right program. Together, they own and run Dance Tonight, whose network includes group and private instruction of myriad dance styles such as waltz, tango, foxtrot, quickstep, and swing. Lessons can help even the slowest at foot become confident in their step as they absorb basic dance knowledge, prepare for special events, or escalate to amateur ballroom competitor status. The adult instruction is also supplemented by an extensive children's program, directed by professional instructor Danielle Moor.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Each Saturday night we teach a one-hour beginner and/or intermediate dance lesson.
We cover four dances: salsa, bachata, merengue, and kizomba.
Immediately after the lesson, we have a super-fun dance party, playing salsa, bachata, merengue, and kizomba music. One price covers the lesson and the party.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Just follow along with our fun, talented, and skilled dance instructors, and we will have you dancing with the stars in no time. People will be dressed from elegant to casual.
Most importantly, wear comfortable clothing and shoes. Shoes: heels, flats, dress shoes, or sneakers.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Honestly, I started this business because I love to dance, and I love to teach, and I was looking for a fun place to dance salsa on Saturday night in Columbus. A place in which people could dance socially, and become better dancers, and it did not exist, so my business parter and I created it.
What do you love most about your job?
Seeing my students become better dancers, and seeing how that brings joy to their lives. Also, dancing helps me keep fit, be social, meet new people every week, and have tons of fun. I love my life.
