We are centrally located mid-Cape, at three locations:

Award-winning, certified ballroom dance (and LaBlast) instructor Karen Shackleford has over 25+ years experiance in Dvida Ballroom Dance. As the owner & Head Instructor of Queen City Ballroom Dance Studio in Manchester, New Hampshire, Karen built her reputation on:
