Platinum Dance Academy not only provides students, children and adults with quality dance instruction, but believes in supporting the growth of the whole person. Sessions are conducted to promote high self worth, a love for learning, and an awareness to accommodate the diverse needs of each dancer. Platinum aims to strengthen, and stimulate the mind, body, and spirit.
When we first started dancing lesson ten months ago, Blaine had to drag me kicking into the studio, because I felt so clumsy and uncoordinated—terminally so. The first lesson, I was nervous and embarrassed going in, but by the end of the hour, I started to think I might I be able to dance after all. Shelley was patient, enthusiastic, and like all great teachers, able to make me believe I could dance.
So for ten months we have practiced , and had weekly lessons, and even take our act out in public (first at Blaine’s 50thhigh school reunion), and Shelley has helped us transform ourselves not just into people who can dance a little, but into people who can dance in public and have fun and look good!
We deliberately got married in the morning to avoid the need for dancing, but our 30th anniversary is coming up. Maybe we’ll need to have a dance for all our friends, with Shelley as the teacher!

Shelley has enormous talent as a teacher. She makes steps that initially seem complicated do-able, even for beginners. If you’re not a beginner, she helps you grasp the essence of dancing elegantly. We can’t get enough of her class!

Shelley is a well-trained and highly motivated dance instructor. She really connects with the kids and knows how to get the best out of them while keeping it fun! It is amazing what my daughter has learned in three years.

My wife and I took the Ballroom 1 & 2 classes and loved every class. We wish we would have done this before our wedding. We really learned a lot. The best part was how enjoyable the classes were. I will recommend Platinum Dance Academy to anyone seeking a fun setting for taking dance classes.
