About R&M

R & M Dance Studio is owned, operated and managed by married couple Allen Thomas and Niya Patel Thomas. The pair are two of the most respected instructors and performers in the Atlanta dance community, and also happily call Cobb County home. Their mission is to bolster the quality of the local dance scene by providing professional instruction in a fun atmosphere to dancers of all levels, from first time beginner students, to professional dancers. At our dance studio, we place special emphasis on developing proper dance technique in a fun environment that promotes growth. While we specialize in teaching Latin dance classes to adults, the R & M staff offers a wide range of classes for all ages.


Our vision is to inspire others to appreciate the arts through exposure to the arts, and we are committed to spreading the love of dance to people of all backgrounds. Over the years, we have built a reputation for a high standard of excellence, and whether you seek a dance experience that is recreational or professional, we would like nothing more than to assist you on your journey.
