I started at Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Brookfield in August of 2012 as a Customer Support Representative and, after a short 6 months, moved in to the newly created position of Marketing Director/Social Engagement Coordinator. My current position consists of many different tasks such as event planning for professionals hired for outside events, coordinating in house events for local businesses, public relations and communications, promoting our company, managing social media and so much more.
The best part of working for this amazing company would have to be the environment I am in on a daily basis. After all, it’s not every day people are able to come to work and listen to music, hear constant laughter, and enjoy the ‘fun’ that consistently takes place in their work place. Smiles happen all day! The love and excitement you feel and see here is unlike anything you have ever experienced before!
My inspiration in doing what I do stems directly from the students. From stepping in for their first lesson, to participating in studio and regional events, the progress that is made never ceases to amaze me. It really inspires you to take challenges of your own head on. What great feeling knowing that our industry brings a light to people’s lives.
One piece of advice I would give to all of our future students would be to not wait to begin dancing, the only time you have is now! Why not try something new, step of the norm and challenge yourself!
