Smooth Sailing Ballroom is fantastic. The new studio space is a joy to dance in. Private lessons here prepared my wife and I for our first dance at our wedding and it went perfectly.


I went for their Friday night dance lesson and social. With no experience I expected to learn a few steps and then sit on the sidelines for the majority of the social watching the more experienced dancers. WRONG!! Not only was the lesson fantastic but I found myself on the floor multiple times with more experienced dancers who were kind to a fault. (including some of the dance instructors). By the time I finally left my cheeks hurt from smiling so much! I can´t wait to return!


If you are looking for an inspiration to dance, and you want to get in shape, here you will find amazingly charging, romantic and friendly atmosphere. Smooth Sailing Ballroom has it all.
