Growing up in the home of a professional wrestler, siblings Gina Abramson and Joseph Robledo were surrounded by varying pathways to fitness. However, though they understood the importance of a steady workout regimen, they couldn't seem to muster a long-term commitment to any of them. That was before they found Zumba's energizing dance routines.
Today, they run Move! as a nonjudgmental space for others in search of the exercise equivalent of their soulmate, whether it's Zumba, hip-hop, or the studio’s blend of yoga and Pilates. Their instructors—including a former cheerleader and a certified personal trainer—choreograph classes that accommodate all experience levels. They also schedule eight-week salsa programs, which lead beginners in dance-step fundamentals such as executing well-timed turns or constructing a Robocop suit, only for dancing instead of crime fighting.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our focus is simple, You. We understand everyone has different ideas when it comes to why they start partner dancing. Some want to go to the clubs and some want to learn it as a sport. We take the students wants and needs into full consideration and make a plan to get you to your goals.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
The first lesson anywhere can be intimidating, but here at DanceArt SA we make sure you are comfortable from step one. Wear shoes that are easy to slide on a wood floor and that feel comfortable to dance. Wear comfortable clothes that allow you to move.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
DanceArt SA was started by Aaron Rolando Alvarez to give San Antonio the next generation of dancing. At only 24 he opened his studio and has strived for excellence not only on the dance floor but in running a highly respected business.
What do you love most about your job?
The greatest thing about teaching partner dancing is the students. There is nothing better in life than seeing your students grow. Every student is like a puzzle and its our job to put all the pieces together to make their goals come to life.
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
