Why a Wedding Dance? 

A first dance is the perfect way for you and your partner to add even more celebration and fanfare to your special union. 

Dance is an extremely social and personable activity. Learning how to dance with your partner is a great way to bond with one another and further show your commitment to one another. You’re both truly dedicated to making your day a special one as you work together. 

When the day finally arrives, you’ve been working solidly together towards the celebration. 

Learning how to dance with your partner makes for a fun and rewarding lifelong activity that can be pursued in lessons, or in any of life’s celebrations, parties and festivals.

Introducing OUTDancing NYC program: a dazzling array of dance classes, get-togethers and performance groups serving the New York City LGBT community.  

Our mission is to make learning how to dance accessible, fun and wholly enjoyable. We offer instruction in a variety of ballroom and social dances and provide a warm, supportive, nurturing environment for our students. All are welcome in our classes.

Have you ever wanted to dance, but felt uncomfortable learning in a traditional setting? We encourage our students to learn dance on their own terms. 

Interested in taking your dancing to a new level as a performer? You may want to join Rhythm Locura, our premier LGBT Latin dance group. Rhythm Locura celebrates and brings the joy of Latin dance to the LGBT community by performing at venues across the greater New York City area.

Dance is love, compassion, energy and excitement. 


It’s not about leading or following. 

It’s not about left or right. 

And it’s certainly not about men or women. 

The true heart and soul of dancing lies much deeper. 

Dance is about working together…and having loads of fun in the process!

OUTDancing Weekend Instructors: Diane Lachtrupp, Johnny Martinez, and Simone Assboeck
