Real people, real dancing, real fun!

Some People Come in Our Lives and Teach Our Souls to Dance”
My name is Ashley, and I met the National Dance Club team at the Holiday Edition Vendor Fair on December 21, 2019. A short background on the person I was. I had crippling depression, anxiety, and PTSD from several events that happened in my life. One those events was the death of my best friend, my dad, who passed away from Mesothelioma cancer in 2016. I sought a counselor and a psychologist because I didn’t want to be depressed and anxious. I needed to find something to help myself get out the hole I was in.
At this vendor fair I met many people. One of those people was Eric who welcomed me over to The NDC booth to talk about dancing. I sheepishly scheduled my free dance lesson on December 27, 2019 with Eric. I came into the NDC studio not expecting too much, but ready to try. Working with Eric that day, all my fears just melted away, and the negative feelings I had been experiencing also just melted away. So, I signed up for confidence builder dance lessons. I went to all my private lessons plus all the group classes I could. My confidence grew not only on the dance floor but also in my life. My friends, family, and coworkers could see the confidence and changes dance gave my life. The color in my face brightened. I was not moving as slowly, and everything was getting better day-by-day. I wanted to share my love of dance with others, so I started to invite friends, family, and coworkers to guest night where they got a group class and free private dance lesson just like I did. Each one felt the feeling I felt. Not only has dance built my confidence, but I have also gained an NDC family, not just with Eric but also with the other instructors Abby, Melissa, Jamey and the other NDC members.
​There are some things that you do in life and it quickly goes, but there are other things that come in your life that just lifts your soul. NDC has come into my life and taught my soul to dance and it will be dancing for many years to come.

After an eight year hiatus from ballroom dancing, I was excited to start back up after moving to Rapid City. I am so glad I did. The instructors are talented and friendly and foster an incredible and fun atmosphere. It is very social and I have met some amazing people along the way. If anyone is thinking of learning to dance, I would highly recommend this studio.

Dancing is a wonderful way to express yourself and meet new friends. I had no idea what I was getting myself and Ann into when I signed us up for dance lessons. Now I’m more than happy I did.

I highly recommend the Refit classes with Bobbi. They are a fun mix of dance fitness and cardio with plenty to keep your heart rate up but easy enough even people without great rhythm (like myself) can handle!!!

Refit with Bobbi is great! She has the lights off and you feel like you are just on a dance floor with friends all while pushing your physical limits. If you want to have a great time and burn some major calories, you have to try this!

John did an excellent job teaching our lesson. He taught us the basic 2 step. Had a good sense of humor, has obviously done this a lot, and helped us make progress! I would definitely recommend this to my friends!

learn new steps,
and the tango?
wow, it's beautiful.

I love this studio! The space is beautiful and I personally really enjoyed the adult ballet class. I danced during my entire childhood, but injuries in my twenties prevented me from continuing. Her adult ballet class allowed me to dance again, in a supportive environment where they understood I had to adjust for my limitations.
