Quick, quick, slow. Quick, quick, slow. It seems that every dance lesson starts the same way. Students are told, "These are the steps," "Move to the beat," and "Never breakdance on wet cement." But unwilling to settle for the minimum, Seacoast Ballroom helps dancers see beyond getting their feet to move in the right direction. Its founder, Frederick Dunn, strives to inject dancers with grace and musical expression to help them feel dance for what it is—an art form. Its classes range in difficulty from beginner to competition level, and cover a variety of ballroom styles. Solo dancers or couples can strut through a tango, shimmy their hips in salsa, or effuse elegance through the Viennese waltz.
Opened in 1878, the Music Hall's Historic Theater isn't just the oldest stage in New Hampshire; it's older than all of the state's residents. But thanks to a recent restoration, today's audiences can experience the venue in all its original splendor, including the same hardwood floor that Mark Twain and Buffalo Bill Cody once crossed. Fittingly, it hosts many productions steeped in Americana, from Broadway musicals to symphony concerts.
Around the corner from the Historic Theater is a newer landmark, the Music Hall Loft. A more intimate venue with just 124 seats, the Loft focuses on more modern entertainment such as poetry readings, film screenings, and cloning festivals.

The instructors at Dance Technics believe there's something to be learned and earned from all forms of body expression. That's why they teach myriad dance styles—everything from ballet to tumbling to hip hop—within their third-floor studio. There, students join in on classes divided by age and skill level, and show off their moves against exposed brick walls and padded floors. The classes can mix styles or focus on competitive dance, and range from 30- to 120-minutes. The instructors also offer private lessons for one-on-one practice or choreographing solo routines.
