Ronnie's Dance Studio - 393 Maxim Drive, Hopatcong, NJ 07843
I have as much fun as anyone when I teach... sometimes more! I love it... and you will, too. My
goal is to teach as many people to dance as I possibly can, and that's an ambitious goal!
I've been teaching for the last 20 years, and dancing as far back as I can remember. Even as a
child I danced my way through school, then danced my way through college then moved up into the
big stuff....ballroom dancing and competitions....now, I'm content to teach what it's taken me years
to perfect and I love it...I live for it....when I see someone learn a new step, or I see how thrilled they
are that they're moving around the floor....I get as excited as they do.
I started learning ballroom dancing through Classic Ballroom in Hackettstown with Chris Thompson
and loved it so much, at his suggestion, I learned both parts of the dances and eventually became
a teacher. I stayed at that studio for quite some time until it changed hands.
I started my own business at that point called Dance Party Express as I had no permanent roots so
I would bring dancing to anyone who wanted it... from teaching in their homes or at various venues
and schools, to DJing entire parties with dance lessons included.
Eventually I rented space from various studios then found a perfect place to rent for a while... the
basement of my Church... Our Lady Star of the Sea. We were there for quite some time but
outgrew it! Again, it was time to move on.
We've been at our current location for 12 years and after a short closing due to family matters
we're in the process of bringing the studio back to life! This building has served us well, the dance
floor is still in perfect condition, we continually make improvements to the building and studio, and
finally added three "fireplace" heaters... so we won't have those chilly days anymore waiting for the
heat to kick in.
Do come and join us. We're putting classes back on the calendar and hope we can start filing
them back up again.
Feel free to contact us so we may help you decide which type of lesson(s) are best for you.
No contracts to sign, no membership fees... Open to Everyone!
