We’re baaaaaack and more excited than ever with a brand new location and format for classes. Thank you for your patience in allowing Fearless Leader to take a couple months off and recover from what turned out to be TRIPLE HERNIA surgery. The surgery ended up being a little more than we anticipated but Mario is healing nicely and is happy to get back up on his feet again.
It gives us great pleasure to announce that FunDance’s new home for class will be Omni Salsa. Omni Salsa is conveniently located at on Richmond Ave just west of Chimney Rock. This is a great central location and not too far from where classes were held before. The studio has one room and is a different configuration. As such we have had to change the structure of our group classes. Make sure you scroll down and read all the details regarding Wednesday evenings as class times have changed. PLEASE bear with us as we try out this latest format. We are experimenting and would GREATLY appreciate any and all feedback you might have as to how we can improve our lesson delivery. It is our intent for you to finally have the opportunity to take class with friends and co-workers who are just getting started. ALL CLASSES will now be taught by Mario (Fearless Leader) and Stephanie (Empress FunDance) and we can’t wait to see you back in class…WE MISSED YOU!!! (ok, mostly Stephanie) (bah, Mario missed you too…everyone but KP) (guess who wrote this part?) (BWAHAHAHA!!!) (Have you ever seen so many parentheses in your life??) (what’s the plural for parenthesis…parenthesisses, parenthesis’s, or parentheses?)
FREE (ok…really heavily discounted) STUFF!!!
(ok that last one was silly…)
BRAND NEW OFFER!!! – If you would like to attend more than one class each evening, we are offering and UNLIMITED PASS for Wednesday nights at $75 for ALL THREE CLASSES, or any combination of two classes. Please be mindful of your level, and do not attend classes above your ability. Instructor approval is not required, but GREATLY recommended. If you are unsure about your level, please speak directly to Mario or Stephanie.

Looking to improve your skills faster, and have a group?
Both Mario and Stephanie are now offering semi-private lessons. Limited to no more than 5 couples, these intimate lessons allow us to cover MUCH more information than a normal group class. These one hour sessions allow you to pick who’s there with you, what material is covered (in virtually any style of dance) and you dictate the pace and the content! Both Mario and Stephanie have limited slots available for these sessions, and will be on a first come, first served basis. Cost is based on the size of the class, and will always be more affordable than private lessons. If you have a group together and would like to find out more, email Mario directly email@example.com or call us 281.815.7208

With a competitive career spanning 3 decades, he hasover 30 National Titles covering all styles of competition, having multiple wins at the national level in Classic, Showcase, Strictly Swing, and J&J. 2-Time US Open Classic Division Champion, US Open Team Division Choreographer and Champion, including Dallas Dance Hall of Fame, Living Legends Hall of Fame, and the youngest person ever inducted to the World Swing Dance Council Hall of Fame, he’s choreographed more US Open Championships (over 20) than anyone else. Since 1990, Mario has traveled full time professionally across North America, South America, Europe, and Australia in the Swing, Country, Ballroom, and Carolina Shag dance circuits.Most recently, Mario became the first instructor in WCS history to be hired to teach in all 50 states. No one else in Houston has these credentials.
Stephanie McPherson-Robau is a 4 time UCWDC (United Country Western Dance Council) World Champion, twice in the Master’s Division (the highest level of competition offered in the UCWDC) and twice in Division 1.

Classically trained in Ballroom and Latin, Stephanie has incredible knowledge of dance technique in ALL dances, not just WCS.
