 After quite a long search for a good dancing school around Boston I stumbled across this treasure. This is exactly what we've been looking for: Very professional, very friendly, and actually fun! We are learning so much every week that I can't believe it's been only a month that we've been there, but at the same time the atmosphere is very laid back. The dance floor is huge and well kept.

What I like especially is that they offer so much, but keep the classes really affordable. Our package includes two private classes a month as well as group instruction twice a week, and we are paying less than you would for just private classes. The private classes are excellent, too: Very friendly, very to the point, very customized. 

I absolutely love it here!

I can't say enough good things about these instructors and this studio. Marcio and Saori are what we wish all instructors would be, meticulous and exacting, but patient and encouraging. They not only love to dance, but love to teach others to dance and it shows.  They make learning fun.

The studio itself has a huge gorgeous dance floor with floor to ceiling windows, so it never feels overcrowded.   It inspires you to really move and make the most of all that space. Whether you are a novice or are interested in competing, you will be glad you came here.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Marcio and Saori and having them as dance instructors for the past four years. They are both talented, dedicated, professional dance teachers.  I would highly recommend Marcio and Saori as dance teachers whether you are practicing your first dance for your wedding, you have a dream to dance for sport or you have a passion for dance competition. Dancesport Academy of New England, Marcio's and Saori's studio, has a big beautiful dance floor, so spread your wings, move your feet, and enjoy!

Marcio and Saori are the hottest couple to hit the Boston dance scene.  Whether you are nine or ninety or any age in between, their studio, DANE, is the place to go for ballroom dance.  You can throw away your running shoes, forget to renew your health club membership and stop wondering where to party on the weekend.   Happiness is on tap for members, with endless opportunities to learn and to dance.   I've also seen people who just show up for social dance, or pros who drop in to improve their salsa technique.  Young couples swing by to polish wedding routines, and business travelers fly in for intensive crash courses. Where else do you find instruction where the people teaching are at the top of their game?  This five star rating carries a warning:  Dancing at DANE is highly addictive.

This place is really "happening" under the talented new owners who took over this studio almost a year ago.  Not only was Owner/Instructor, Marcio, born in Brazil, he was born to dance. And his partner, and also Owner/Instructor, Saori, is an amazing combination of beauty and sizzle. I've tried several studios for dance lessons and didn't hesitate to follow Marcio and Saori to their new studio where I am a regular.  Their dance instruction is excellent and their huge, unobstructed ballroom dance floor is wonderful.  I highly recommend them for wedding couples, for purely social dance instruction, or for competitive ballroom dancers.

I would totally agree with J.B. Marcio and Saori represent to me the greatest combination of talent and knowledge.
Their dance instruction will perfectly fit your goals. The depth of their knowledge is amazing. Their teaching ability is exceptional.
Their kindness is infinite as well as their dedication to their students. You may want to learn one dance or twenty, you may want to be there one time a week or every day, you will always feel welcome when you come in, and feel totally happy when you leave.
The studio is beautiful with many windows allowing for plenty of natural light. The dance floor is huge and of a perfect quality.
A great place to dance owned by two greatly talented dance instructors, Saori and Marcio.
I have been very lucky the day I met them. It changed my life.
