Studio owner and award-winning dancer Dianna “D” Dray calls ballroom dance “therapy for the soul.” With her fellow instructors, she hosts these unorthodox therapy sessions, basing the lessons on the philosophy that “anyone can learn.” On Latin Days (Mondays and Thursdays), the teachers lead salsa, rumba, cha-cha, and samba classes. Other days feature ballroom dances such as the foxtrot and the tango (Tuesdays), and freewheeling swing and hustle classes (Wednesdays). D also leads classes specifically for brides- and grooms-to-be, teaching them the steps to gracefully handle their first dance as a married couple, whether it’s a tactful waltz or a classy hokey pokey.

To call The Stone Pony a rock venue would be like calling Mount Rushmore a rock. Because the world has plenty of rock venues, but very few of have the history, the mystique, and the
clout of this scrappy Asbury Park bar. On any given day, tourists can be found posing for pictures in front of its iconic entrance, and any touring band worth its weight in rock salt clamors for a chance to shuffle on its stage.
Of course, much of The Stone Pony's status comes from a fella named Bruce Springsteen, who helped put the place on the map in May of 1976 when he sat in on a performance from Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes. The Boss only played on one song—a raucous rendition of Sam Cooke's "Having a Party"—but that's all it took to build a legend, and that song became the unofficial anthem of the Pony and the surrounding beach community.
Through the decades, the club has persevered, magnetically attracting fresh talent and audiences through its partnership with Live Nation, the world's largest concert promoter. Considering the millions of fans and musicians whose lives were changed within its magic walls, one could easily call The Stone Pony the Mount Rushmore of rock venues.
