Once in your life you get an opportunity to seize a decision by the horns and run in a direction that you never thought possible. Adrian and I were offered that opportunity 6 months ago and we are so thrilled to announce that we became the proud owners of the 7th Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Illinois, located in Park Ridge on July 23rd, 2014. As nervous as we felt, we were also incredibly humbled and honored to have been offered the opportunity through our regional director Rae Josephs and our training director Jesse DeSoto.
Adrian and I have each spent four a half years as instructors enriching the lives of our students through the gift and joy of dance, as well as furthering our own education in this amazing art form that we have so much passion for. We taught at the Buffalo Grove and West Loop studios respectively and couldn’t be more proud to work for a company that promotes a sense of Family and Values not only to their staff but to their students as well. It is rare to truly enjoy what you do for a living and Adrian and I can safely say that we rarely feel like we spend a day at “work”. We are beyond excited in taking on this new adventure and we can’t wait to get a chance to meet some wonderful new students from the Park Ridge area and create confidence in them to become great social dancers. Please come by to visit our studio!
