The Dance Space News - July 17th

  • NEW! Friday, July 20th from 8-9pm, Baramon Kolb and Tammy M. Davis are starting weekly open classes that will focus on WCS drills and technique for those wanting to take their WCS to the next level. The goal is to teach you the things you don't get in group classes. Instructors will be very hands on with the students by offering one on one help. You will learn the technique AND you will actually get to feel what is being taught with instructors. Classes will not focus on patterns; instead, the focus will be on understanding cause and effect of our movements, proper connection, body shaping, styling, musicality, technique, concepts, creativity and competition readiness.

Welcome to The Dance Space

The Dance Space is a dance facility run by Ginny Engler and Mike Recant. We have been open since April of 1992 and we are dedicated to promoting Ballroom Dancing in the Richmond, VA metropolitan area. We have a 1,600 square foot wooden dance floor and state-of-the-art sound system that is used for regularly scheduled dance events and instruction.

We are not a dance studio in the traditional sense. The Dance Space is a facility that is used in the following ways:

  • 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
  • Rental of floor space to independent professional Ballroom Dance instructors for both private and group instruction
  • Rental of floor space to established amateur and professional dance organizations for dances, classes and other events

The Dance Space is on the second floor of a small shopping center directly on Broad Street. It is located half way between Horsepen Road and Libbie Avenue on the North side of Broad. The studio entrance is downstairs between the Mekong Restaurant and Banner Express.
