What Makes Us Special?

With so many dance studios to choose from in Bergen County and in New York City, why go to a studio in downtown Oradell that’s been at the heart of the community for the last 40 years? Because at Anchor Dance Studio, you’ll meet everybody—families preparing for weddings or their daughter’s quinceañera, recovering cancer patients, the hearing-impaired, individuals with orthopedic challenges, people with physical disabilities, married people, divorced people, young people, elderly people, children, folks of all ethnicities, backgrounds, and ages, and those who simply just love music or can’t sit still.

In short, you’ll meet people just like you.

For the last 40 years, Anchor Dance Studio has been more than a place to learn how to waltz or salsa. At the heart and soul of this intimate studio lie friendships and partnerships that cross generations. Students rely on dance to relieve stress, make new friends, and develop confidence all while mastering the steps to the many ballroom and Latin dances that we teach, including: salsa, bachata, cha-cha, fox trot, waltz, tango, meringue, and swing. Some of our students even go on to compete and win in state competitions.

First time on the dance floor? Or maybe you’re rusty and seek to get back in the swing in things—literally? At Anchor Dance Studio, you receive training in a friendly, non-judgmental environment. Our enthusiastic instructors emphasize technique and having fun, equally. Whether your goals are social or competitive dancing, we’ll guide you every step of the way.

Why dance? Because dancing offers physical, emotional, and social benefits for all ages. Develop confidence and coordination while making friends with students who have been dancing with us for years. Join us for group classes, one-on-one private tutorials, parties, and even bus trips to dance events. We’re a fun bunch.
