Del and Laura built up my foundation and skills as a dancer, and I cannot say enough good things about them. Great people at the studio and you do see a lot of improvement. I highly recommend this place.

I am so glad I took the leap to learn how to dance at MMA. Dancing was out of my comfort zone and MMA made it comfortable to learn through amazing instruction. Laura and Del make MMA a fun place to forget about life for a few hours a week and just dance
