Meredith Allen

Meredith has proudly been a member of the Dance With Me team since 2013. Originally from Des Moines, Iowa, Meredith studied classical ballet for eight years when she realized the rigid structure of the ballet world did not suit her free-spirited personality. She quickly immersed herself in the swing dance scene, focusing heavily on lindy-hop, before moving on to lesser known styles like Charleston and Balboa. This led to a desire to learn more forms of partnered dancing: including salsa, zouk, and eventually….ballroom. After falling in love with the ballroom world, Meredith decided to become a full-time instructor. She now manages the Fort Worth studio striving, to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Her goal is to help students learn in a way that is challenging, encouraging, but most of all, fun!

Raphael Abel

“There are shortcuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them.” This is a quote that ultimately describes Raphael Abel. ‘Ralph’ as he is affectionately called at the studio, began his love of dancing at the tender age of twelve. Like most kids, he was a little hesitant at first, but with a gentle push he discovered an inner passion that would stay with him for eternity. After finishing his degree in accounting and entering the New York City workforce, he realized that something was missing in his life. His whimsical attitude and personality was immediately a hit with the staff and the students at all of the Dance With Me studios. He smoothly dispenses all his knowledge and skill to everyone that crosses his path; building relationships, listening to others and keeping his hands in the mix at all times. Raphael is very excited about the opportunity to bring ballroom dancing to another level in Southlake!
