Celebrate the start of something special!

80/20 Dance celebrates the grand opening of its first location in the heart of Pace, FL

Co-founders Jeremy Ruben and Ralph Schofield are proud to bring you a dance studio concept unlike anything else in the industry.  80/20 Dance is the brainchild of Jeremy Ruben, a dance professional who has served the Emerald Coast as an instructor and studio owner for the past five years. Jeremy has developed and operated the most successful partner dance programs in the region, most notably in the style of West Coast Swing and the various Country Western styles of dance. To learn more about the collaboration of Jeremy and Ralph that led to the creation of 80/20 Dance, click here

We are NOW open for business... 

... and planning a big celebration on Saturday, September 15th and 16th!

What good is a weekend of dance without some fantastic social dancing?!!! 

After a short break for dinner, join us back at 80/20 Dance for a fun-filled evening of social dancing! 

Heavy on the West Coast Swing, with a strong dose of 2-Step, Cha, Waltz, Nightclub, and East Coast Swing, you will be happily dancing the night away with our social dance that runs to midnight.

We may have a few surprises during the evening... (pssst... free swag anybody?)... so don't miss this awesome part of the weekend!
