In celebration of its third anniversary, Rose Dance School is set to host a dance show with well-rehearsed production numbers by its dance instructors and their apprentices.
Manager and dance instructor Resty Joson said the anniversary program will be held from 6pm to 11pm on Saturday, Oct. 6, at the Royal Taga Hall of Saipan World Resort in Susupe. It will be televised by KSPN 2.
The program is open to the public and entrance tickets cost $25 per person, which includes a dinner buffet and free dance sessions with Rose Dance School's six full- and part-time instructors.
Saturday's event will be highlighted by performances featuring all kinds of ballroom dances, including swing, cha-cha, samba, tango, and waltz.
Joson said the program will showcase the dancing skills of some 50 students of the dance studio. Participants will have a final rehearsal at the venue tonight, from 7pm to 9pm, so the audiences are guaranteed a fantastic show.
The remaining original dance instructor since Rose Dance School opened in 2009, Joson said they never wavered in their desire to teach ballroom dancing despite the economic challenges in the CNMI.
“We want everyone to learn how to do ballroom dancing so they, too, can experience its health benefits,” he told Saipan Tribune. These benefits include burning up to 400 calories per hour, increasing energy levels and flexibility, reducing stress levels, sharpening coordination and reaction time, and improving posture, attitude, and mental health.
The Rose Dance School is located on the second floor of the Canton Restaurant and is owned by Carol Wong Chan and Rose Chan.
Due to insistent demand, Joson said they are planning to revive the studio's public aerobic classes, which used to be offered through the Wise Women Village Project.
For only $1 per person per session, community members can join the aerobics classes to be held starting Oct. 8 from 6:30pm to 8pm at the Carolinian Utt.
Joson said they also offer dance classes for those who want to learn individually.
