From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
The Ballroom Dance Company the only studio in Oregon with multiple championship level accomplished professional instructors who reliably produce Oregon’s top competitors, including multiple national title winners. In addition to high-level competition coaching, we also have teachers who specialize in teaching wedding couples and people who have never danced before. We understand many people solely wish to dance for fun, and offer group classes and private lesson catered to individual goals.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The Ballroom Dance Company was created to share the joy and benefits of dancing by providing a friendly, positive, and knowledgeable atmosphere that allows you to meet people and learn a life long skill. We consider teaching dance a privilege and our personal goal. We provide each student with a personalized program for their individual needs to creatively express themselves, exercise, socialize, and enhance their current dance skills.
What do you love most about your job?
I love meeting new students who have never danced before and feel that they have two left feet and expect to accomplish very little. After sometimes only one private lesson, it is rewarding to see the joy and sense of accomplishment they feel with how far they have come in a short amount of time.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
We have many students who came in for a friend or spouse and who had no intention of dancing long term. We have seen many become regular returning students with a new hobby and passion.
