Ladies and Gents,
It’s been a wintry mess for the past week, and we all have braved these snowstorms very well! As much as we are ready for Spring, all of this cold weather is perfect during this week of the year for keeping warm with your loved one. It’s Valentine’s Day!
Cher Rutherford is in the Studio!
First and foremost, we welcome Ms. Cher Rutherford to the Studio today! The current Canadian National Dance Director and Examiner has held the titles of the United States American Style Open Smooth/Rhythm Champion, United States Theatrical Champion, and Fred Astaire National Champion.
Personal Coaching Sessions are still available, so contact the studio to reserve a time.
Ms. Rutherford will be leading two group classes this evening. The Rhythm Group Class begins at 7pm, and the Smooth Group Class begins at 7:45pm. Sign up for both classes or bring a friend and you will save money!
St. Valentine’s Day Dance Party – Friday (12th)
The Valentine’s Day dance party is perfect for the next Pink Diamonds performance to Ashley Simpson’s L.O.V.E. Join us tomorrow night as Sandy, Paula, Mary Jean and Sharon take the floor to show off the latest and greatest choreography by Katie and Katherine.
Wear red! Wear pink! And, share your love of our Columbus-Northwest dance studio by bringing a friend! We hope that they will fall in love with ballroom dancing too!
Group class begins at 7:45pm as always, and the dance party begins at 8:15pm.
The Freddy Ball – Entry Deadline Extended
The deadline for entries to The Freddy Ball has been extended through the weekend. If you plan on competing or attending the event as a spectator, please let Daniel know by Saturday.
The dance competition is in Downtown Columbus on Sunday, March 14th. There’s no reason for you not to be there!
CYP CLUB’s “A Date 2 Remember” – Saturday (13th)
The 3rd Annual “A Date 2 Remember” presented by the CYP CLUB is THIS Saturday at BoMA. The young professional date auction and fashion show currently has 500+ guests registered to attend. It’s a great way to support two local non-profit organizations – A Kid Again and Capital Area Humane Society.
Our fabulous Daniel Tackett is participating as a bachelor in the charity event! He has put together a “Dance with a Star” date package that includes personal ballroom dance lessons, dinner for two, and a private coaching session with one of the dance professionals from Dancing with the Stars!
Walk away with the winning bid on this date package and not only will you add to your dance lessons, you will be helping out two great charities! [Find out about all of the date packages.]
