Our mission is to create an environment where everyone has the opportunity to develop skills, grow confidence, and empower others.

We believe that lessons learned on the dance floor can and should be applied elsewhere...

We are proud of what we've done in 2014 and expect to have an even better 2015.

Thank you to all the students and staff who made it easy for Debbie and me to come in as new owners and feel  like we belong.
A special thanks to Luann and John who built a fantastic community of people who love to dance and help others grow and learn.

Take The Lead Dance Studio
      March 5th, 2015
Where we stand is not as important as the direction to which we are going.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr
Saturday Birthday Social (redux) 
        Okay, so this snow and sleet and freezing rain routine on Saturdays is getting a little tiresome.  Three weeks ago, Nick hosted a Valentine's party through the freezing rain.  Two weeks ago, Debbie and Peter were hosting a February birthday dance in honor of Debbie's birthday only to cancel because of weather
      This week, Debbie and Peter are back hosting. As this newsletter is being penned, the snow continues to wreak havoc on our Thursday schedule but will not affect the Saturday social. 
       All who celebrated birthdays in February and all who will celebrate in March will receive a drink of you choice on us as part of your ticket cost.  Just let us know when you come in to the studio.  To get the evening off to a great start, Peter will be teaching a Siwng class at 7:30.    
        We appreciate everyone coming to the social last week with some of the weirdest collection of head toppers we've seen in years.          
      Dance socials allow you to practice what you're learning in an environment where everyone is here to help you. You will see dances that you may want to learn in an upcoming group class. You will also meet, network and socialize with other people in the area who share common personal and/or business interests.    

Upcoming Socials ...
March 7  -  Hosted by Debbie and Peter
March 14 - Hosted by Katie and Taka
March 21 -  No dance social --- Showcase is the next day
March 28 -  Hosted by Brian Wells
