Featured Student: John and Stacy Raasch
From a very young age, Stacy watched her grandparents ballroom dance at family weddings. She was inspired to learn how to dance, so John bought Stacy some dance lessons at Fred Astaire - South Metro as a Christmas gift.
John and Stacy have two busy children (Jacob, 11, and Katie, 8), so they look forward to their time together at the studio. They especially love Rumba for its intimacy.
When they're not at the studio, John and Stacy love to take family fishing and camping trips. They also have their hands full with a naughty dog and a cat that likes to eat plastic.
Fred Astaire South Metro is opening its doors for an Open House on Friday, July 17th. The fun will begin at 7:00 pm. There will be two group classes throughout the evening accompanied live by the Vibronauts. This event is open to the public, and it's a great place to social dance. Come join us for a fun night!
Let's Go on a Picnic
Fred Astaire South Metro and Fred Astaire Rochester will host a potluck-style summer picnic on Saturday, August 8th at Lake Byllesby Regional Park in Cannon Falls. The studios will provide the meat for grilling. Contact the studio to sign up to bring a dish to share. There will also be games including a volleyball match with South Metro vs Rochester. Come enjoy some time with your fellow dancers off the dance floor.
