Fred Astaire Dance Studio Columbus Northwest is with Vard Margaryan Pro and 10 others.April 19th, 2018 at 2:47am
Vard certainly did not disappoint in his three-session all-level Dance Camp tonight! We all agreed that our core workout and squats have been checked off for today, especially after the rumba session! Aside from the killer workout, it was evident that each student gained new knowledge in waltz footwork and sway, rumba technique, and a unique new take on swing! There were many things to think about and continue to practice, but remember: as Vard said tonight, if you retain just one new thing from a session, that’s success! Each lesson learned contributes to your personal journey in becoming a better dancer. ✨ We are so lucky to have Vard in for a second day of coaching tomorrow (Thursday)! Call 614-459-8079 to speak with staff about options for fitting in your personalized private coaching with Vard!
