THIS VALENTINE’S DAY, GIVE THE GIFT OF DANCE
Various, GREATER BOSTON, Mass. (January 17, 2013) – This Valentine’s Day, Fred Astaire Dance Studios of Plymouth, Belmont and Dedham are offering a unique opportunity to give a romantic gift with physical and mental health benefits lasting far longer than a box of chocolates: a gift certificate for ballroom dance lessons. Whether you are a new or returning student, the certified dance instructors at Fred Astaire will show you – or you and a partner – how to try something new and enjoy the transformative benefits of dance.
“In addition to the fun and social aspects of joining a class, the benefits of ballroom are many: musicality and rhythm, endurance and flexibility, grace and agility, posture and core strength, and most of all, self-confidence and self-expression,” said Earl Batol, Studio Director (Dedham, Belmont). Added Plymouth Studio Director Catherine Burke-Moran, “You don’t have to be ‘Fred or Ginger’ to give ballroom dance lessons a try. With or without a partner, we invite you to fall in love with dance this Valentine’s Day.”
Fred Astaire Dance Studios in Plymouth, Belmont and Dedham offer introductory packages for new students available as a gift certificate for Valentine’s Day good for two introductory dance lessons for only $40 (regularly $95 value). The offer includes one 45-minute group class and one 30-minute private lesson… just enough time to burn up the dance floor.
Open to all skill levels, all studios offer private and couples’ ballroom lessons, Latin dance classes, wedding choreography, and special events and competition experience. All studios offer beginner to advanced lessons in a wide variety of dance styles from around the world, including ballroom, Latin, salsa, swing, tango, waltz, social slow dancing, and wedding choreography.
