Owner Sonia coveted a dance environment to be fun, upbeat, and accessible. “I created this program so that everyone can learn to dance, said Sonia.” “Even on a budget, the whole family can join our group classes, learn to dance and make new friends at the same time.”


There are also additional, affordable opportunities for the social dance scene.   The studio hosts practice parties every second Friday of the month, giving students the opportunity to socialize and practice what they’ve learned with other students and instructors.  The cost is $5 to attend, and students are encouraged to bring their choice of refreshment.  Practice parties are an economical alternative to night clubs for the social dancer to utilize his or her skills.  Most night clubs will charge a cover of $15 to $20, in addition to valet parking, and expensive drinks.


Established in 2005, Sonia’s World of Dance specializes in private, semi-private lessons and group classes. The studio welcomes students of all ages who are ready to let loose their dancing spirit. It is located at 4150 Westheimer, Suite100, Houston, TX 77027. Please visit for more information.


Extra-curricular activities, like dance, need not be sacrificed during hard economic times.  Ballroom dancing used to be considered a hobby enjoyed exclusively by the wealthy because only they could afford the market price of lessons.  Today, more affordable opportunities have been presented to provide for a wide array of financial situations, allowing budget-conscious students a chance to continue this extensive hobby.
