about this business

Providing instruction in both Meridian and Nampa!

The leading ballroom dance program in Idaho that exclusively supports couples dancing together!
I understand that couples who come in to dance together, prefer to stay together. That is why I don't rotate our classes. Coming in with your spouse or date, you won't have to worry about dancing with strangers. You need only worry about keeping the fun just between the two of you.

I have both group classes and private lessons for your learning enjoyment. Larger Saturday dance events are offered through the months of November-April. When you join our Newsletter, you will get up to date information on studio events, a monthly dance tip and a heads up on oncoming beginner classes just for you!

I am a leading provider of showcase and wedding choreography. If you have a special event coming up that you would enjoy having a favorite song choreographed in couple dance format, please see the website for more information on these programs.

I offer ballroom group and private lessons in Meridian at Dance Arts Academy in the El Dorado business plaza at the Southwest corner of Eagle and Overland. Now offering both group and private lessons in Nampa in the new Xpressions Dance Academy across from the Idaho Center, behind Sonic, in Nampa.

  • "It was wonderful to develop a strong relationship with our instructor, Lori. We admire her so much as a dancer (is there anything that she doesn't know?) and as a person. Her passion for dance fills the dance floor and is very infectious. Her patience and confidence boosters are immeasurably valuable."

    Tobby & Kate W.

    ..."I can not say enough good things - Great Teacher / Friend - keep an open mind and you will learn something that will stay with your for a life time... Your first time can not be as scary as mine was... When I walked into that first class - I was sure I knew how to count to 4 - after our first hour - Not so sure, lol... If you have taken dance lessons, you know what I mean... If you don't know what I mean.... Take a lesson and you will learn"...Greatest thing I have ever done

    Michael R.

    Wonderful dance instruction! These classes were fun date nights and we really did learn a lot with each session! Well worth the price!
