Modern Steps School of Dance

Bringing Ballroom Dance to Your Life!

About Modern Steps School of Dance

Modern Steps School of Dance is a privately owned ballroom dance studio.  Founded in 1989 by James and Tammy Clemens, it offers professional ballroom dance instruction for all levels of dancers.  We also host a variety of activities for the dancers in the community.

We are conveniently located at 4117 Tamiami Trail East in Naples, Florida, on the northeast corner of US 41 and Lakewood Blvd.


We offer group classes, private instruction and dance parties.  Our friendly, caring staff can help you learn the basic steps of the ballroom curriculum in the dances of your choice, including Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Viennese Waltz, Quickstep, ChaCha, Rumba, East Coast Swing, Bolero, Mambo, West Coast Swing, Merengue, Salsa, Hustle, Samba, and Jive.  The American and International style of dance are taught at all levels, from beginner to championship.

You're invited to attend our weekly public dance every Saturday evening from 7:00-10:00pm, with your DJ Host Michael Levaul playing your favorite dance music.  We offer a club atmosphere to relax and enjoy the evening dancing and meeting with friends.

Our students enjoy regular parties and have performance opportunities throughout the year.  Our annual Showcase each spring is a sellout performance every year, and gives students an opportunity to perform for family and friends in a professional-style show.  Students may also perform in one of our Spotlight Balls and receive critiques from a professional adjudicator.

For the more serious dancer, we offer instruction at the highest level in preparation for competition at local, national and international competitions.  We routinely invite guest coaches to work with our students to develop them to their highest potential.  It is our mission to help our students reach their goals, whether its becoming a World Champion or dancing at their 50th wedding anniversary.
