In July I had the pleasure of attending the Grand Opening Party at Fred Astaire Jupiter's brand new dance studio. The new studio is much larger with high ceilings and beautiful windows. It was a great event where the pro teachers at the studio put on a mini-show to demonstrate the classic ballroom and latin dances. The highlight of the night was the attendance of Dancing with the Stars' Tony Dovolani. Tony shared some of his experiences on the show and then taught the group how to "move their hips". It was quite the treat and Tony is the ultimate gentleman. If possible, he's even nicer in person than he seems on the show. If you've ever wanted to learn how to dance the Tango, the Samba, the Waltz, or any of the other ballroom & latin dances, there's no better place in South Florida, than Fred Astaire Jupiter. And you never know, you might just run into Tony Dovolani, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, or Corky Balass. They've all been known to drop in and teach a lesson or two. My good friends Warren & Babette, who own the studio, are also opening one in Boynton Beach, so if you're a little further south, that will soon be the place to go.
And don't forget, they offer a Wedding Package, so you can look like a pro during your first dance as husband and wife!
