Your Instructors

Nick & Melissa Enge

Nick & Melissa Enge are social dance instructors at the University of Texas, where they teach hundreds of students how to dance every semester. They are known for their relaxed, fun-loving approach to dancing, which puts even the most terrified students at ease. Given that their in-person classes are always full, with a waitlist, they created this site so that anyone, anywhere can learn from them at any time, and experience the joy of dancing!

Misty Enge

Misty, Nick and Melissa's Siberian Forest Cat, is named after the early 20th century dancer Mistinguette, inventor of the Apache dance. Whenever she graces a lesson with her presence, she is always sure to steal the show.


  • What will I learn in this course?

    In this course, you'll learn eight fun dance mixers that enable dancers to quickly meet new people.

  • Why should I learn Mixers online?

    In our online classes, everyone gets the best view, instead of having to crane their neck to see what the teacher is doing. In addition, when learning online, you can watch the lessons over and over again (now, and any time in the future), as well as rewinding or slowing down the video if you need more help with a particular step.

  • Why should I learn Mixers from you?

    Unlike many other sites that offer online classes, where you might only get a quick demonstration of the steps, in the detailed instruction you will receive in this course, you'll actually get a step-by-step breakdown of each mixer as well as many specific tips about the finer points of dancing them. In addition, in developing this course, we thought carefully about how to arrange the dances so that each lesson builds on what you've learned in the previous lessons, so you'll always know exactly what's going on.

  • Do I need a partner?

    No! While these dances are ultimately designed to be danced by a group of people, you can also have fun learning them by yourself.
