A Chat with Saratoga Savoy
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
The Saratoga SAVOY is owned and run by professional dancers who have more than 20 years of dance and education experience. We are dedicated to social dancing and offering the best instruction for an affordable price.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Come ready to enjoy yourself and wear shoes that you can pivot or spin in. Running shoes make dancing harder. Having a heel on the shoe also helps you stay on the ball of your feet. Most importantly, remember to relax. We have the salsa—with you, it’s a party!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Our mission is to promote dance to the public and to give back to the public. Dance lessons should be affordable and in an environment without any pressure. To this end, we want to create a relaxed environment where anyone will come, have fun, and learn.
What do you love most about your job?
We love the confidence and joy we bring to people who have just learned how good they can look dancing. Our previous students attribute our lessons to giving them focus, for winning scholarships, and one student lost 25 pounds in three months from his love of swing dancing.
