Put on your dancing shoes and learn some new moves at a new dance studio in North Central.

DanceWise Dance Studio opened in October at 5555 N. 7th St., Suite 112. Husband-and-wife owners Paul and Julianne Daniells have worked as dance teachers for about eight years in the Valley and have competed in ballroom dance competitions around the world.

Students from beginners to advanced dancers can take classes in  waltz, tango, fox trot, samba, mambo and cha-cha-cha, among other ballroom dance styles. Group and private lessons are available and students do not need to bring a partner.

To protect the safety of everyone in the studio due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students will learn moves and practice on their own, not with partners, for now. Students and employees are required to wear face masks in the studio. Class sizes are limited.

The school also offers Zumba classes at 9 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and 11 a.m. on Saturdays for $5 per class. Group classes in ballroom dance are generally $10 per class. New students can take advantage of a deal, where they spend $59 to participate in three, private dance lessons. Normally it would cost $85 each for private lessons.
