About the Studio... 


Located just off Fifth Avenue, next to the Empire State Building, Paul Pellicoro's DanceSport is literally "Where New York Learns to Dance".


Since our humble beginnings in 1985, we have grown to be the largest Ballroom and Latin dance studio on the east coast. Paul is "the man who taught Al Pacino the Tango for Scent of a Woman." With the resurgence of partner dancing, Paul and his talented instructors have been featured on news stations, talk shows and all forms of local media. DanceSport is the studio where stars come to prepare for their dance roles in film, television, and stage.


DanceSport's experienced instructors and numerous dance spaces enable us to offer a wide variety of dance styles at various levels in rooms that accommodate private, semi-private, and group lessons. From Tango to Hustle, Salsa to Foxtrot; from wedding couples to private parties, DanceSport provides the perfect environment. Learning to dance in a supportive, friendly environment feels more like a party than a class. DanceSport also has a full bar and offers gourmet coffees and snacks at Paul's Dancing Café.


DanceSport's key to success has been realizing Paul Pellicoro's vision- to have the most comprehensive programs available in all areas of social and competitive dancing; and to create opportunities for people to utilize their skills on the dance floor through nightly practice parties, city-wide events, and local and national competitions. The extensive repertoire of DanceSport also includes show performances, corporate events, and dance vacations.
