The Ballroom at Hixson opens as popularity of dancing grows
The full service studio offers dance to all, from beginners to those training for competition
Chattanooga, TN --- Based on their past experience with ballroom dancing and the surge in recent years in popularity of ballroom dancing, Amy Marie Anderson and Tammy Harrelson recognized the need for a full service dance studio in the Chattanooga area. The Ballroom At Hixson recently opened its doors and it’s owners say they are off to a great start as more and more people contact them about learning to dance.
“We wanted a place where the aspiring dancers could learn to Ballroom dance in a comfortable, fun atmosphere at an affordable price,“ Harrelson, co-owner of The Ballroom said. Harrelson has over 20 years of dance experience including teaching men and women from beginners to competitive dancers.
“From Ballroom to Smooth to Latin to Country Western, we offer all styles of dance instruction. All ages and ability levels can take part in a fun atmosphere.” Anderson, co-owner said. Anderson, who has been competitively dancing for over seven years and is a longtime certified fitness instructor, says dancing is a great way to exercise as well as meet new people.
According to the owners, The Ballroom’s offerings set them apart from other studios in the area. “First, we are affordable,” Harrelson said. “A lot of people who want to learn to dance think they can’t afford it. That’s not the case.” Another aspect that sets their business apart from competitors is that they are committed to teaching students on their level at their own pace.
“We’re inclusive to all ages and physical abilities. The Ballroom At Hixson is the only studio in Tennessee that is certified in Wheelchair Ballroom Dancing through American Dancewheels,” Anderson said. "It’s so rewarding to be able to teach and offer this opportunity to this segment of the population that might otherwise be left out of an activity like this," she stated.
The Ballroom At Hixson offers both private and group lessons. In addition, they have social dances every Saturday for those who want to enjoy a night of dancing. The owners emphasize that you don’t need a partner for any of their services including the socials. “There’s always someone to dance with! We have a lot of men who enjoy dancing that come out, which is not generally the norm,” Anderson said.
The Ballroom can also provide lessons for those who have a special event coming up. “Frequently, we have requests from Wedding participants to learn some dances so they can enjoy the occasion comfortably,” Harrelson said. “We can also choreograph a Wedding Dance for your special day,” she said.
“We are excited with the possibilities The Ballroom has to offer Chattanooga. We look forward to teaching those who have wanted to learn to dance but were afraid to try. They are not aware of how easy and fun it really is," Harrelson stated. “Our biggest reward it the look on a student’s face when they realize they are dancing,” she said.
