Dance With Me Stamford Launches Wednesday Evening Ballroom Dance Parties – Open to the Public
Special Group Class & Party Package Available for First-time Attendees
STAMFORD, Conn., July 12, 2012- Area residents seeking a mid-week change of pace can buff up their dance floor skills while socializing at Wednesday evening ballroom dance parties recently launched at Dance With Me Stamford. Reminiscent of the popular ballroom dance evenings at the now-closed Terrace Club in Old Greenwich, the parties are open to the public and run from 8:30 to 10 p.m. at the studio -- 20 Summer Street, 5th floor, in downtown Stamford. Tickets are $15 per person, which includes light refreshments. Immediately preceding the parties from 7:30 to 8:30, Dance With Me Stamford’s world-class instructors teach group classes – a different ballroom dancing style each week – for $25 per person. First-time attendees to a group class are invited to stay for the ballroom dance party for free to practice what they’ve learned. For information, visit www.dancewithmeusa.com, and call 203-674-8100 for reservations.
Dance With Me Stamford was recently opened by ABC’s Dancing with the Stars professionals Tony Dovolani, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Valentin Chmerkovskiy and their partners. With a dance floor large enough for almost 300 dancers, the studio provides an elegant atmosphere for ballroom and Latin dancing. Crystal chandeliers offer a stunning contrast to the original brick walls and exposed beams of the historic, commercial building overlooking Columbus Park. Music plays over a state-of-the-art sound system.
“Ballroom dancing is a fun, social activity,” said Dance With Me Stamford studio manager David Thomas Moore. “The parties give couples, groups of friends and individuals an alternative activity for a mid-week night out – whether they’ve danced before or not. Some just enjoy the social interaction and music, and some find or rediscover a passion for dancing!”
Dance With Me is one of the nation’s leading Latin and Ballroom dance studios. The partners have assembled the best dancers from around the world to guide students in the proper techniques of International Standard, American Smooth, American Rhythm, International Latin Dancing and many more dance styles. Dance With Me students learn at their own pace and comfort level. The studio aims to provide a relaxing, socially rewarding experience and is open to all ages. Dance With Me dance studios are the most modern and upscale in the Tri-State area.
Now numbering four, the Dance With Me chain was launched by founding partners Sasha Chmerkovskiy and Jhanna Volynets. They have been joined by Maks Chmerkovskiy, Val Chmerkovskiy, Tony Dovolani and Eugene Livshits, who serves as general manager of the chain. The first studio opened in New Jersey in 2005, followed by Long Island in 2008, Soho in 2010 and Stamford in 2012. For more information, visit www.dancewithmeusa.com or call 203-674-8100.
