A Chat with Shut up & Dance!
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Having trained in all forms of dance including Tap, Ballet, Jazz, Point, Ballroom, Latin, Swing, & Salsa, Julie (the owner) is the perfect choice for "Nervous Newcomers", competitors & performers, as well as Wedding couples looking for that perfect choreography for their First Dance together.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
The casual, social atmosphere at SUAD makes dancing FUN! Unless you put on 2 left shoes when you get up in the morning, you can learn to dance! No expensive equipment needed. Meet new people! Great exercise for the mind and body & soul. Business Networking potential! Why not? Try it you'll like it!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have danced all my life. Dance IS my life and my passion. After years of performing, competing and training in the professional dance world, I decided to share my love of dance with the community I was born and raised in. I opened my 1st studio in 1998 and having been sharing my gift ever since.
What do you love most about your job?
I love meeting new people and enhancing their lives with the ability to dance. Nothing is more amazing then watching them on the dance floor having a great time and knowing that I gave them that ability and opportunity. Seeing the smiles on their faces is priceless. And sometimes I play Cupid!
