Welcome to The Dance Space
The Dance Space is a dance organization run by Ginny Engler and Mike Recant. We have been operating since April of 1992 and we are dedicated to promoting Ballroom Dancing in the Richmond, VA metropolitan area.
We are not a dance studio in the traditional sense. We hold dance events in our studio located on West Broad Street in Richmond, VA . The Dance Space is an organization that does the following:
Holding public Ballroom Dances on a regular basis
Providing public Ballroom Dance Group Lessons on a regular basis for both non-dancers and experienced dancers
Rents floor time to local dance organizations and instructors.
Rents the facility for private events.

The Dance Space events are held in a studio on the second floor of a small shopping center directly on Broad Street (Studio-804). It is located half way between Horsepen Road and Libbie Avenue on the North side of Broad. The studio is above the Mekong Restaurant with our entrance downstairs to the right of the Mekong.
