Collection: Dance with Us

No matter your age or experience, dancing invokes magic for your whole being. 

We share dance with the world because it truly lights up the mind, body, and soul. We experience it every time we step into the ballroom and see our student's smiling faces. The thing is, you can't know until you experience it for yourself. After teaching for well over a decade, we know that even when people desire to dance, they can shy away from it because of time, money, or uncertainty. But you owe it to yourself to experience the magic of dance. There are three ways to participate in dance at Melonlight, read on and enroll.

"My husband and I went to Melonlight to take private salsa dance lessons. It was worth every penny! We had a fun time connecting with one another, learning to listen to each other, and bonding on a different level that we've never experienced before." -CC
Private Lessons

You can take private lessons with one of our certified ballroom dance instructors seven days a week at our beautiful downtown location. It's the fastest, most effective way to learn to dance. You may attend with or without a partner, as a beginner, intermediate or advanced student. 

Your teacher will help you determine the best dances for you, unless you already have your heart set on a particular style. We offer a wide array of partnership dances listed below. Private lessons may be taken as a one time occurrence if you're just visiting or ongoing if you really want to master the skills and invoke that dance magic. 

Dances We Teach
Rumba East Coast Swing Foxtrot
Cha Cha West Coast Swing Waltz
Salsa Jitterbug Viennese Waltz
Mambo Lindy Hop/Charleston Tango
Bachata Blues Quickstep
Merengue Hustle Argentine Tango
Samba Bolero Paso Doble


"Absolutely everyone at Melonlight was as nice as could be and made my wife and I comfortable and very welcome. They didn't treat us as good customers, they treated us more as friends, and it was very much appreciated! Quality of instruction was amazing!" -Alan

Performance Ensembles
If you're living in the area then you can join one of our performance ensembles. These groups are divided up by age and all are open to beginners and intermediate students alike. We live for performance, and our student ensembles allow us to share that passion with you and a great many audiences.

Ensembles meet once per week to rehearse the current project. Some projects are designed for the stage, some for the streets, and others for a unique and immersive performance experience in the ballroom. Each project is themed and focuses on a particular dance. Students learn choreography, performance skills, all around improved posture, presence and expression. Students also learn the importance of being accountable to a group of fellow performers, as well as their teachers and directors. This is the place where lasting friendships and great memories are made. We have four ensembles, see which one suits you.

"We tried our hand at ballroom dancing for the first time in a private lesson at Melonlight. I was pretty nervous since I have two left feet, but after a quick discussion about what we will be doing both my wife and I felt super relaxed and confident as we learned how to dance together as one! They were super patient with us as we figured it out. Once our lesson was done we were excited to continue to learn more once we got back to our hometown!" -Adam

Group Classes
You are also welcome to participate in one of our group classes. These are designed for beginner and intermediate adults with a focus on technique and partnership skills, rather than performance. The schedule for these classes varies and typically requires an eight week commitment. Check out the group class link below to see what is currently being offered. 


"I emailed Melonlight to make sure I could attend and was impressed that I got a quick response and a warm welcome. I met Emily the next morning and could not have been happier. Everyone was welcoming, the atmosphere was great for learning, and she guided the class really well. I will definitely suggest this studio to everyone visiting the area and will be returning when I visit again." -Emma
