We don't just teachdance here . . . we really do dance here. Hate the Workout? Then "Hit the Floor!" Dancing can be a great cardio and aerobic workout without you even realizing it.

A Time to Dance, a place to do it. Yes, right here in Salem !
See you on the dance floor, and remember . . . . . . Keep Counting !

. . . . . See details either below or to the right . . . . . . .

RJ Dance Studio has been offering local dancers and dance students a place to attend affordable, quality classes (since 1986) AND social dances (since 1991) without the smoke, the alcohol or the meat market environment. The local dancer's do have an alternative to the Bar Scene. That alternative is to "Hit the Floor" at RJ Dance Studio, a beautifully renovated dance space located upstairs at 317 Court Street NE, Downtown Salem. The Ballroom is a cozy 1200 sq ft and is an alcohol-free, smoke free, dancer friendly environment.

Our dances are open to all students from all dance classes, including those students taking from other instructors. Our dances are intended to be a fun place for dancers to meet, socialize, observe, ask questions and most of all, dance so you improve your dance skill. There is a wide variety of ages and abilities represented, ranging from high school students to seasoned citizens and from beginning level dancers just starting out to competitive level couples. There really is something for everyone.

The cost is very affordable; a mere $5/cover for the Tuesday dances. How cheap is that? The rules of the floor are simple: Be courteous toward the other dancers on the floor. Adhere to proper line of dance and dance floor etiquette. Don't get too wild and crazy. Don't hurt yourself, your partner or someone else on the floor. And, no air steps.

Encouragement for our New Dancers
Often times as a new dancer you are a bit intimidated by those "more experienced" dancers on the floor. Not to worry. If you are a Newcomer, just starting your dance journey, we and other dancers will try to show you a few basic steps here and there throughout the evening. Obviously, trying to pick up a few steps at a dance (on or U-Tube) does not to take the place of participating in regular group classes or private lessons where detailed instruction and explanation can be provided.

Remember, the better dancers get better because they attend dances regularly and actually Dance! That's where they put to use what they learn in class. With a good balance of classes and dances and a little time, you too, can go from watchingthe better dancers to becomingone of the better dancers. That journey can be challenging, but it's a whole lot of fun.

Still just want to watch?
The dances are the best place just to "take it all in". You can ask questions, see what the dances look like and what the correct music sounds like. But, it's hard to just sit. If your toes are tapping, you should be dancing !! So let's "Hit the Floor!"
