Exciting News at St Pete North ~ March 2019



Champagne Guest Party ~ March 8, 2019

Our students know how much fun dance and dance lessons are, so we hosted a great opportunity for them to share that passion! On Friday, March 8th we had our Champagne Guest Party. Students brought a guest – co-workers, friends, neighbors, colleagues, family – all the people they told about their fun times at our dance studio. Their guests had no previous dance experience and the night consisted of champagne, wine and hors d’oeuvres, and a beginners group class, social dancing and professional dance performances.

At the end of the night, each guest had the opportunity to schedule a complimentary lesson! The event was open to the St. Pete Community – even if they didn’t know one of our students!! – because we know the physical, mental and social benefits dance has had in our lives, we can’t wait to share that life changing experience with the rest of our St. Pete community! To participate in any future events with our studio or to become educated on the benefits of dance – or beginning dancing yourself!! – call the studio at (727) 954-4058.


Happy New Year ~ 2019

The Fred Astaire St Pete North dance team is excited to be teaming up with CASA – Community Action Stops Abuse.  CASA is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to ending domestic abuse. For over 40 years, their team has provided safety, empowerment and prevention services supporting every walk of life.

Our mission at St. Pete North is to enrich lives physically, mentally, socially and emotionally through the transforming power of dance. That is why we are not only donating dance lessons to CASA, but also hosting a Beginner’s Group Class every month for them. Dance has power to improve social skills, lift spirits, and boost self-esteem. In a study done by the University of New England, participants who spent as little as six weeks learning to dance reported significantly higher levels of overall happiness than the control group who did not take classes. Our goal is to use dance as a tool to make the St. Pete community happier and healthier!


November 15 – December 11, 2018

The team at St. Pete North Dance Studio is so excited to be partnering with the Salvation Army this holiday season and is hosting an Angel Tree and 20 Angels! Each year the Angel Tree Program provides gifts for hundreds of underprivileged children in the St. Petersburg area whose parents struggle to buy Christmas gifts. We invite all of our students to pick an Angel from the tree and participate in this wonderful program! It does not matter if you took a dance lesson today or have not taken one in months, help us share the joy and make a child’s Christmas by sponsoring an Angel. We ask that all unwrapped gifts be turned in to the studio no later than Tuesday, December 11th as we will be taking all donations to the Salvation Army on December 12th. We look forward to seeing you at the studio to pick out your Angel!

“Today we went to Golfview Assisted Living Facility located at 3636 10th Ave, North St. Petersburg, FL 33710. We demonstrated dances as well as performed to some songs that brought tears of joy to the residents eyes! We did “My Way” and “Fly Me to the Moon” by Frank Sinatra. It was of true emotional reward helping these senior citizens. We look forward to helping other people in our community!”
