A step in the right direction: Find your dance studio & instructor

You know why you want to dance, you have goals about what you want to accomplish and even how much time and money you want to spend, so what now?

That's right, let's get dancing!

What's that? You don't know where to go? Have no fear, the beginner's guide is here!

Ok, but really, unless you are of the researching-type, you probably don't want to fumble through links and websites and wonder what all the babble about "Latin" and "Standard" or "DVIDA" is. So sit back and relax. Think of this as you comprehensive directory to studios and dance instructors (and if you want to learn via the social dancer’s route, see here.).

Because there are a lot (and I mean, A LOT) of dance studios in Columbus, just click on the style of dance you want to do to see the list of studios that offer what you want.

Ballet, Jazz, Modern, Hip-Hop, Lyrical, Tumbling, etc. (A-I)

Ballet, Jazz, Modern, Hip-Hop, Lyrical, Tumbling, etc. (J-Z)

Ballroom Dancing (including both American and International Styles)

Belly Dancing, Irish Dancing & Pole Dancing (yes, you read that right)
