We’re very excited about our spectacular Grand Reopening and the ceremonies and fun that will be part of it on Thursday, Dec. 3. Under the ownership of Marina and Jose Palacios, we plan to make this Fred Astaire Dance Studio a vital member of the Long Island community for a long time to come.
Here are the details for our Grand Reopening:
The ribbon cutting with the Chamber of Commerce of Huntington Station takes place from 5- 6 p.m.
The party includes professional and student performances, food and drinks, a group class and plenty of prizes. In addition, the first 30 callers get three dance lessons for $30. That’s got to be the best deal in town!
Marina and Jose are established dance professionals eager to bring the joys and benefits of dance to you, your family and friends in a comfortable, social and low-pressure environment. Their Fred Astaire Dance Studio serves Melville, Northport, Woodbury, Greenlawn, Cold Spring Harbor, Laurel Hollow, Plainview, Old Bethpage, Farmingdale, Deer Park and Commack.
Marina grew up in a family of musicians. The first time she connected with ballroom dancing was during ice skating lessons in Russia when she was 6 years old. That led her to ballroom dancing, which she felt allowed her to express her deep feelings and passion. After moving to Germany she started to compete nationwide in international style with great success.
In 2010, Marina came to the United States where she began teaching ballroom dancing and continued to compete professionally in the most respected competitions in the country. Meeting her husband Jose and sharing the same dream, they worked together to bring to others the same feeling that ballroom dancing gives them.
Jose is originally from Venezuela. After receiving his degree in engineering he decided to move to the United States in 2008 and that is when he discovered his passion for ballroom dancing.
After he met Marina, they worked hard toward their goal of having a dance studio together and of sharing their love of dancing with others.
Please join them, the staff and the students at the Grand Reopening event on Thursday, Dec. 5 at 5 p.m. You’ll be glad you did.
