Rose Dance School celebrated its fourth anniversary on Oct. 27 at the Saipan World Resort’s Royal Taga Hall.
About 170 people attended the party, including Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (Ind-MP) and Sen. Jovita Taimanao (Ind-Rota).
The anniversary’s highlight was a performance by over 40 students of Rose Dance School led by instructor Resty Joson and dance school owner Carol Wong-Chan.
The dancers performed a repertoire that included cha-cha, quickstep, reggae, foxtrot, boogie, salsa, hip-hop reggaeton, cupid shuffle, and zumba.
Wong-Chan thanked the students and their families who joined in the celebration.
“I want to thank everybody for coming over and becoming part of the celebration. Second, I want to thank the committee for this event for taking their time and effort to make this fourth anniversary party successful,” she said.
Wong-Chan said the Rose Dance School is not only a place to learn various ballroom dances but also a venue to lose weight and exercise for a healthier disposition.
“Some of us treat ballroom and zumba dancing like a passion. For some it is also a habit and for some they just enjoy it. But the good thing that ballroom dancing gives us is our good health. Because we’re sweating while we move and follow the tunes of the music. We dance a lot and while we are doing that we are actually exercising, at the same time enjoying it.”
To this end, the owner of Rose Dance School is inviting the community to enroll at the school. “I am encouraging all of you to invite your family, your friends, your relatives, your co-workers, and even your neighbors to join us to promote an exercise which everybody could enjoy.”
Rose Dance School opened in 2009 and is located on the second floor of Canton Restaurant in Garapan.
