The Dance Studio T he Dance Studio, currently located downtown Terre Haute, has been instructing community members on popular dances since 2002. Owner and experienced dance expert Brandon Halleck leads the organization in a variety of lessons including private, group, wedding instruction and more. Students can have the opportunity to learn one-on-one with an experienced instructor at The Dance Studio. Dances include the Samba, East Coast Swing, Foxtrot, Country Two Step, Rumba, and more. Wedding parties interested in freshening up their dance skills will have the option to learn a range of skills and dances from romantic to goofy. The Dance Studio recommends couples start early so as not to stress on the big day. “I always suggest the gift of dance during the holiday season,” commented Halleck. “Learning to dance is an investment that will last a lifetime. We offer private lessons throughout the holidays...for any level! It is a fun, exciting and creative hobby. Ballroom dancing is very social and will give you an opportunity to meet new friends. It will improve your coordination and self-confidence, and it is a form of exercise you can enjoy year round. We believe the hardest step at The Dance Studio, is the one through the door.” With 125 active students, and over 1,000 YTD, this popular dance organization is also host to the area fundraiser Dancing with the Terre Haute Stars. Holiday parties can be scheduled if individuals (or businesses) are interested in renting the studio. The staff is available to teach/DJ music, etc. for those private events. With reasonable rates for community members, gift certificates are also available for Christmas giving. The Dance Studio is located at 1237 Wabash Ave. in Terre Haute. Hours are generally Monday - Friday from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. - but those times will vary.
