We are excited to introduce ourselves as the new owners/operators of The Space. We have been dancing at The Space for about two years, but together have a total of 20 years of dance experience. The Space is a dance studio that is near and dear to our hearts – we met on this dance floor two years ago and look forward to getting married with our dance family in attendance in 2022. You’ve probably seen us on a Friday night West Coast social dance along with James’ daughter Hazel.
West Coast Swing is our passion, but we are here for every type of dance that happens at The Space – from dance fitness to Latin to kids Hip-Hop! We love learning, teaching, and social dancing. Our goal for The Space is to bring in new faces, grow as a dance family, and learn from one another through the process.
You’ll see some really exciting changes coming soon, starting with a fresh new logo! You can buy logo t-shirts, sweatshirts, and accessories (dance bags!) with this new logo at thespace.threadless.com. Proceeds from everything sold here will go to a scholarship fund to support dancers from our community in continuing their passion. Keep scrolling to see new instructors and classes, as well!
We are thrilled to be here to support the building of communities, self expression, and the love of movement through dance. Both of us are looking forward to hearing from YOU how we can support you as part of our dance family. We’ll see you on the dance floor!
Elizabeth & James
The Space has been open since October of 2017. As Elizabeth and James took it over in June of 2021, they did so with a desire to grow the dance family and continue to make dance accessible for people of all ages and all backgrounds. We have a strong team of instructors who teach ages 5 to 105, and who specialize in everything from Hip-Hop, Tap, Ballet, Latin, Ballroom, Vogue, and West Coast Swing! We believe in promoting a comfortable atmosphere where all are welcome and celebrated. Click here to see our class schedule and learn how to get involved!
We are honored to have Chuck Brown, champion West Coast Swing professional teaching a NEW West Coast Swing Technique & Styling class on Thursdays at 7:30pm.
