Lamar Nite Club (Slow Dance)

I learned that I had a pain for ballroom dancing at a social level long before I decided to make a career out of it, and that passion extends to helping others discover and develop their own pain for dancing. There are few things that I find more satisfying than turning someone on to dancing in general, or on to a dance they previously thought they'd never enjoy.

  • Susan Myers

    I love the instructors. I've been working closely with Chuck Myers and love dancing with him more than anyone else I've ever danced with. He has a clear, strong lead and a real understanding of the mechanics of social dancing. He can get me to do steps I didn't even know I could do. He has a great deal of knowledge and experience in most of the more recognized types of social dancing, such as Latin, Smooth, Swing, and more. He's very patient and good at recognizing weak areas in a dancer and coming up with ways to correct things that are challenging for them. I also love the owner of the studio, Louise Lamar. She is probably one of the most knowledgeable people in the area when it comes to social dance and has a sweet, encouraging attitude that helps her students to be the best dancers they can possibly be. The actual physical studio is also wonderful for dancing. There is a HUGE ballroom with a real wooden floor that is a pleasure to dance on. There is plenty of room for practicing progressive dances, like waltz. Overall, all I can say is I LOVE THIS STUDIO!
