We had the good fortune of connecting with AZ Ballroom Academy and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi AZ Ballroom, how does your business help the community?
We are able to the bridge the gap between ballroom dance and the community. Between social media, mental health awareness and learning new skillsets, we provide the community with a new way to deal with stressors in their lives. With depression & anxiety, especially during the pandemic, movement has become so important so our goal is to provide individuals with healthy skills to deal with issues, a safe environment to explore, staying on trend with social media, and building a business where all are welcomed.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Located in Downtown Mesa, we have the vision to bring a community together to share the gift of dance through fitness, entertainment, and service outreach. We hold the belief that “anyone can dance” no matter the age, height, weight, shape or size. Our core mission is to educate and empower beginner students into knowledgeable and confident individuals of Ballroom and Latin dance. Welcome to the dance family!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Margarita’s in Downtown Mesa

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
A huge thank you to all Arizona School Districts that allow us to be involved with their students & bring ballroom dance to them.
