Start Dancing

Erin Bomboy's company Start Dancing NYC brings the ballroom into your apartment.

Ms. Bomboy, who worked for a time with Arthur Murray Studios, realized that the transition from gallumphing around to smooth moves could be eased by taking the instruction out of studio groups and into the home.

They're flexible on scheduling, which means you can cha-cha before work or samba on Sundays. Each lesson is 45 minutes and costs $75. Buy a package of ten and you get one free.

Whether you want to learn a wedding dance for you and your partner, twirl at a club, or hold your own at a formal event, Start Dancing gives a whole new meaning to spin class.
