Meet Mercedes! She is one of the newer students at the studio. We sat down with her to find out about her experience at Ultimate Ballroom…
How did you find out about us?
I was looking for a dance studio near me, so I was surfing the net and found your page. I was happy to see that Ultimate Ballroom was only 10 minutes away from my house.
Have you ever danced before?
No, not at all. Ultimate Ballroom is the first dance studio experience in my life.
Why did you choose ballroom dancing?
I have always loved watching ballroom dancing. Graceful dancing, beautiful dresses make my feel like I am watching a princess performing. Also, I enjoy watching “Dancing with the Stars” show and ballroom competitions.
What was your first impression when you entered the studio?
This was what I wanted, and I felt like at home. From the very beginning I knew nobody here, but now I have met nice people, and we can share our hobby together.
Do you have any other hobbies besides ballroom dancing?
I love drawing, making jewelry. Baking is my passion as well. Also, I love learning foreign languages, such as French and Japanese. I enjoy learning new challenging things for me.
What was the most challenging thing for you when you started dancing?
Keeping balance was the most difficult for me in the very beginning. I was scared a bit because I thought I had “two left feet.” But, my teacher helped me, and I love him so much. It was easy to learn new steps. Now, I am so happy to be able to dance. Dancing could be my new challenge, so it keeps me interested in it. More challenge – more fun!
What is your favorite dance and why?
