Meet The Team at Royal Palace

The Royal Palace Dance Studio is New Hampshire's Premiere Latin and Ballroom Dance Studio. We operate a full service dance studio with a group of professionals who are passionate about dancing, teaching and helping others increase skill and confidence.

Since 2002, Royal Palace Dance Studio offers a wide variety of Latin and Ballroom dance to students in the Manchester, NH area. RPDS specializes in Miami style Salsa. The foundation of our business is tied to a brother studio in Miami, FL. It has allowed RPDS to be New England’s premiere Latin and Ballroom dance studio. 

All of our instructors are Certified Dance Professionals which means we will provide you with the highest knowledge and skill in order to help you achieve your personalized dance fitness goals. Miah Trost opened Royal Palace Dance Studio over twelve years ago with a focus on creating a fun and friendly environment where students feel welcomed and not intimidated. Individuals of all ages learn Salsa, Swing, Ballroom and many other styles of dancing.

By providing a fun, friendly and positive studio environment, the staff and students of RPDS can grow and develop on the dance floor as well as in their personal lives. 

All of the instructors at Royal Palace Dance Studio are certified dance professionals and are trained to assist you in identifying your personal dancing goals. 

We give back to our community in Manchester through local organizations and charities such as the YMCA, Make A Wish Foundation, Big Brother’s and Big Sister’s, Manchester Community Music School and many others. We have also provided after school programs for kids throughout Southern New Hampshire for over ten years through 21st Century After School Program. We service more than 13 schools in Manchester and six schools in Nashua.

Through our interrelated method of teaching, our dance instructors can provide students with a higher retention rate and a faster learning experience. Through the DIVIDA Syllabus, students can track their progress through the New Comer, Bronze, Silver and Gold Medal System.

Your lifestyle will never be the same as you begin your journey of learning how to Latin and Ballroom dance. We hope to inspire you to pursue your dreams and goals.
