This page covers mostly places within a few miles of Boston, though it might stretch all the way to I-495. If you're looking for something in your area (outside of Boston) and you don't see it here, try looking on the other pages for north, west, south, and really west of Boston (Western Mass, 413 area code, etc.).
Looking for dance classes? Ask around and get opinions from other dancers before signing up for classes. Hint: Look for someone whose dancing you like and ask them where they learned to dance.
