Hello! And Welcome To

                     Wilsons DanceSport Of Bradenton.

For any of you that DON'T know us, we are one of the Premier Ballroom Dance Studios in the Bradenton/Sarasota area.

  • We were VOTED #1 Reader's Choice by the Bradenton Herald in 2013 and have been serving our area for more than 12 years. We teach Ballroom, all latin styles, swing, salsa, rumba, YOU NAME IT! 
  • We have FANTASTIC instructors and we help those who've had NO dance lessons before, to those to whom Ballroom is a big part of their lives.

ALSO, we are the FUNNEST ballroom dance studio probably ANYWHERE.

In addition to our private classes, group classes,and famous Friday Night Social Dance Parties here at the studio, we ALSO have LIVE NIGHTS OUT, where we go as a company with some of our students and reserve local entertainment clubs, restaurants and music venues and dance the night away!

So welcome to our Social Networking Website!

Take a look around and then call us at 941-896-8834. We look forward to speaking with you!

Well! We just had a GREAT LIVE OUT AGAIN-yestersday on the 27th at TARPON POINT. Check out the latest party pics:-)


  • Next Week you will see our new weekly installments of articles, content and musings and opinions from our Instructors, Wilson Barrera, students, and other industry dance professionals! LOOK FOR THE SECTION TITLED "Advice/Opinion/Musings". Should be great reading for all those that love Ballroom Dancing and our industry.           

                    YOU SPOKE AND WE LISTENED!

  • Due to the fact, that during our promotions phase we have quite a few more guests that come to our Friday Night Parties, some of our members made a great point that their time to dance with their instructors of choice or to just dance at the level to which they are accustomed gets diminished...THEREFORE YOU SPOKE AND WE LISTENED! Starting this Friday moving forward we have restructured our parties in order to give you the dance time and access to dancing with whom you choose at the level you choose, while at the same time we will be able to showcase our studio to new guests as well. 
  • WE VALUE YOUR FEEDBACK and where and when we can WE WILL RESPOND:-)
