The San Marco location opened it’s doors in 2008. It was our premier boutique studio for our Global Dance Trance fitness license program. The funky atmosphere, high floating floor, stage lighting and exceptional sound system set us apart from any studio in Jacksonville. You could also visit our DT Shop at this location to find the hottest workout wear in Jacksonville! This is our primer studio and is a model for all Dance Trance programs around the world. We had an extraordinary audio system, lighting grid with LED panels, black light, gobo and spotlights plus a double sprung floating dance floor. Dance murals lined the awesome space by Tim LeNoir. Sept 10th, 2017 this location was destroyed by hurricane Irma but it remains in our hearts forever.
October 2017 we opened our New Downtown location

All Students should arrive at the studio in time to check in and start their class. Students that arrive late will be permitted to go ahead and take the remainder of the class, but should stretch before joining the class.
Please do not walk through the dance floor in the middle of a routine. Wait to enter or exit the dance floor between songs. This is a safety issue for all students.
It is important to be present for warm-up and cool down routines. Please try and be at class on time.
Dance Trance requires that all students have on appropriate fitness shoes (Gym Shoes) for safety reasons.
Please help us with construction problems around both our studios. Wear your street shoes into the studio and then change into your dance shoes. This will help keep dirt and gravel off our studio floor and keep your dance space clean for throwing it down!!

We do not allow food in the studio.
You must be at least 18 years old to take a fitness class at our studio.
Please do not stop, stand or rest in class for any reason, the class is moving so move with them. Have fun and dance, there is no reason to freak out! Move in the direction the class is flowing. Eventually you will start to pick up some of the choreography. If you need to stop, tie your shoe or rest, exit the dance floor between routines.
If you are not in great shape, the Dance Trance class will be a lot for you. Take it easy and do not try to keep up with those that have been working on this material for years. The best way to learn is to try and stay on the dance floor.
Please keep all belongings and water in the area provided. No items are allowed on the dance floor for safety reasons.
DT is not responsible for items left in the changing rooms. Please leave valuables at home.
Please turn all cell phones OFF. Cell phones are not allowed in the dance area. Be considerate.

Sorry, but by request from our clientele, we do not allow spectators in the classroom.
Class payments must be made before the class. Please check in before class if you can via the mindbody app. This will save time and avoid delays at class time.
