I took a lesson at the new Stamford dance studio, Dance With Me on Summer St., and was very impressed! No hard sell tactics. I was able to follow my dance instructor (without tequila) and not step on his toes! It was a great lesson. I was sore in my arms (maintained good frame) and no knee problems. I'm going back for more. I can get fit here and have fun. My instructor, Eduardo, is passionate about helping people achieve their goals through dance. Part psychologist, part comedian, very stylish and a great dancer; works for me.
I went to see them partly because Dance with Me co-owner and Stamford native, Tony Dovolani who brought home the mirrored ball trophy from Dancing with the Stars, has offered to teach a dance lesson to the winner of an auction item for PAWS, an animal shelter I work with and volunteer for in Norwalk.
Not only did they offer the dance lesson and a chat with Tony after about his DWTS experiences, but they offered 25 individual dance lessons to be sold for $15 each to raise money for PAWS.
The auction is on Bidding for Good and BFG has agreed to feature this item and has made the PAWS auction a highlighted event. http://biddingforgood.com/pawsct
Everyone wins - DWM studios gets new dancers, the winner gets a priceless rare opportuntiy, people can try dancing at a reasonable cost, and the dogs get great medical care. What can be bad about any of that????
