ASHEVILLE NC – Rococo Ballroom dance studio opens its doors this week in North Asheville, bringing to the area the only ballroom dance studio with a unit-based class structure, teaching all styles of partner dances.
Owners Jake Lavender and Meghan McDonald have been dancing competitively and providing ballroom dance instruction for eight years with Arthur Murray International Dance Studios. This is the team’s first venture as an independent studio.
“We teach using three different classes to maximize the learning potential,” says McDonald, “the advantage of this model is that anyone, with any level of experience, can learn more skills to reach their personal goals faster.” The studio offers private lessons for learning new things, as well as group classes and parties for reviewing and practicing skills while getting helpful hints from an instructor. All of the teachers are full-time dance instructors and professional competitors.
The new studio is located in a 1600- square-foot space in Reynolds Village and it features a large dance floor, twenty feet of mirrors, and a modern sound system for private instruction and group classes. Rococo Ballroom offers private instruction in any partner dance, including Bachata, Bolero, Cha-cha, Foxtrot, Rumba, Salsa, Samba, Swing, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Western, Waltz, and others.
Rococo Ballroom will officially open on Saturday, June 28, 2014 with a ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. The studio is located at 51 North Merrimon Avenue, Suite 107, and will be open Tuesday through Friday, noon to 9 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call 828-575-0905 or visit Rococo Ballroom on Facebook for more information.
