August Events at Fred Astaire Dance Studio St. Pete Central
It amazes me that I get to come to work every day where everyone is constantly smiling. If you haven’t been to a ballroom dancing studio before I encourage you to just give it a try. I watch each day as our dance students learn this new skill while, smiling and having a great time. The instructors have such a knack for creating a welcoming and safe environment for anyone, at every level of dance experience Sometimes, our students are like butterflies who go through this metamorphosis as they come in shy and unsure then after a couple of lessons, you can see their confidence, posture and overall energy improve. I wouldn’t have believed it if I didn’t watch it with my own eyes. Experiencing ballroom dancing, whether it be swing, salsa, waltz or whatever your forte, it can change your life for the positive. When people ask me what I’ve learned or have been surprised about with my job at the Tampa Bay dance studios, I tell them I see transformations every day. I would agree with the advice from blogger of Biggest Girl in the Ballroom, “if you have a desire in your heart to dance (or anything else in this world for that matter) then do it! Life is a journey and we all have to start somewhere. Dancing, especially, is a process of self-discovery, experimentation, and a practice. I think it is incredibly sad when we limit ourselves or deny ourselves experiences due to perceived shortcomings and it is really a matter of choosing to engage in life, to say yes and risk it, or to say no, and slowly waste away. Courage is not the absence of fear but rather getting on with it anyway in the face of it. And that is where the growth is, outside our comfort zone.” The studio is under new Management and we would love to have you join or come back to our new growing dance family.
