Hello, my name is James Smith owner of Dance Studio 18.  I teach Ballroom and Latin, social, competitive, dance showcase style lessons in Sacramento Ca. and New York.  Studio 18 was established in 2009 and has become a National Trademark Service throughout the United States.     I am also a Certfied Integrative Life Coach. I have owned and operated my own physcial location for years and have recently made some changes to better service my clients.  I am friends with the Spotlight Ballroom, Salazar's Dance Studio, Malko Dance Academy and Kinetic Dance in E.D.H, VIP Ballroom, Capital Dance Center and even teach in New York every couple months at Lourdes Cruz Dance.  I am also very excited and proud to be an official StardustDance agent.  If you're looking for a luxury dance cruise, or dance events at fancy hotels then I can help you.  Visit the Cruise and Luxury Event Page.



I focus on private dance lessons and workshops with a few group classes every week.  I am a professional instructor who can take you to a competition or to perform at a showcase.  I am surrounded by Ballroom and Latin dance every day of my life and know every studio in Sacramento as well as almost every dance instructor.  I have keys to many studios in Sacramento.  I mention this because if I don't have what you need, I know someone who does.  I teach Salsa, Rumba, Cha Cha, East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Bolero, Merengue, Cumbia,  Bachata, Tango, Waltz, Foxtrot, Hustle, Club Dance and others.  Also let me add that I am a true dance professional and dance like one.  I teach because I love dance and can rip up the dance floor.  If you're looking for dance choreography then give me a call.  Especially if you want to copy some dance moves from a Youtube Video you may have seen.  


Dancing is a beautiful and healthy way to live.  I encourage everyone to give it a shot.  I have never met anyone I can't teach.  This is the truth.  My motto is to dance, have fun, and feel sexy.  My goal is to help you on the dance floor with these three areas.  Give me a call for a free dance consultation.  I teach real people how to dance real dances in real situations.  Please join my email list so you can stay updated as to what is happening.
