|Dream To Dance Studio, 1070 North King Street|
As we walked around the studio, we recognized many faces from the ballroom dance community. It was like a "who's who", or whatever the correct phrase is. Geoffrey Fells, the Divino Ritmo gang, David Alvarez, Christopher Bayot, David, Glenn, Tracy, Keoki, Ann, Amy, Neil, Lorrie, Mike, Doug, Sandy, Terri, Bob, Tom, Herman, Sherri, Yumi, etc., etc., etc.
We could probably name just about any name and he/she would probably have been there. And, those were just the people we recognized, which was only about an eighth of the people there. The room was just packed with so many more people we did not recognize, who must be Debbie's followers from her Salsa and Night-Club dance activities.
The great turn-out of at least 300 people, if not more over the course of the evening, was a testament to Debbie's popularity. We've known Debbie from our early days of dancing and we can truly say that Debbie is one of the nicest and most accommodating dance professional/instructor in Hawaii. Her door is always open to anyone and everyone who is interested in dance, including other instructors.
We hear they have a lot in store for the future at Debbie's Dream To Dance Studio. Not only will they have dance classes and social dances for both ballroom and nightclub style dances, they have plans to have live bands play on Saturday evenings with varying themes. They hope to have bands including Son Caribe (who provided the music last night), Wasabi, and the like. It sounds like they are going to have a fun studio. And the door is always open for everyone. Ya'all check it out !!
It was a bit warm last night with the big crowd and all the dancers. But, fear not, they have plans to have engineers come in to help boost the AC to keep the crowd cool while they dance to Hot music.
We just wanted to get a quick post in to Congratulate Debbie on her Grand Opening and Wish Her the Best of Luck for the future of her studio. It's a Winner !!
