BIG NEWS at The Dance Space!

As you know, we (Ginny & Mike) had to give up the studio at 6004 W. Broad St. last November because of COVID regulations.

We are happy (but anxious at the same time) to announce that we have signed a new lease for 6004 W. Broad St. which begins October 1st, so The Dance Space is back in business "full time"!

It will take a while for us to return to our pre-COVID way of operating but we are looking forward to bringing Ballroom (and Latin and Swing and West Coast) back to RVA all week long, not just on Sunday nights.

If you are interested in having an event, holding group classes or holding private dance lessons at The Dance Space let us know at or call us at 804-594-5871.

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 a 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

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.
