Great Escape: Grab Your Dancing Shoes

This week, we've got a place for a top-tapping good time (pun intended).

What could be more romantic than dancing with your significant other? The rhythm of the music as you sync your bodies together and then the finish, when your partner holds you above their head while the crowd cheers.

Dancing skills not quite up to Dirty Dancing finale level yet? Thank goodness there is The Dance Doctor, also known as John Cassese. At his dance studio right on Fourth Street, you can choose from a variety of dance classes (from beginning salsa to introductory hip-hop), or grab a private lesson with one of the very talented and very patient instructors.

The motto of the studio is, “If you can walk, you can dance.” So leave behind all hesitations about any lack of grace or any memories of what happened in sixth grade square dancing. Plus, as you and your partner learn a new set of skills, your bond will undoubtedly grow.

Then it will be time for the lift. Or not.

What a fine true story! I have known John Cassese for more than twenty years and I cannot count how many shy city employees he taught to dance with their bride's, on the day of their weddings. John is a tower of modesty for being so famous. Over the years we have seen many movie stars and T.V. personalities going there to brush up on their dancing skills. That is how I met Ron Howard. I begged John to call me when J.LO shows up!

John is quite marvel--he made me feel like I could dance anything, with grace and most importantly, rhythm! Thank you for taking the time to comment! :)Cath P.S. I'm in for J.Lo too!
