I've so enjoyed the weekly Thursday night group classes at International Ballroom at the Mt Pleasant location. Blake is a excellent instructor and gives his all in those classes. Mt Pleasant needs a dance studio and this location is wonderful. I highly recommend this dance studio to newcomers and more experienced dancers.
Alright Madelaine Lovetta Kenner I hear your call and accept the make up challenge! Check out my results!!
Do I have to join something to participate?

"A new study, published in the open-access journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, shows that older people who routinely partake in physical exercise can reverse the signs of aging in the brain, and dancing has the most profound effect."
Thank you for my beautiful flowers! We will be back as soon as we can.

Teaching ballroom dancing to all ages in the Charleston and Mt Pleasant SC area since 2006! At International Ballroom Dance Studios, we believe that learning to dance is not just a hobby, but a way of life.

During our programs, we witness first-hand how dancing changes the lives of our students through building self-confidence, promoting fitness, and relieving stress. The talented staff of our South Carolina dance studio is among the best of the best. Our instructors are highly trained, certified by the National Dance Council of America, and passionate about inspiring our students to express themselv

It is with heavy hearts that we share the recent passing of two members of our beloved dance family. Jim "Zip" Zimmerman suffered from a heart attack and left this world from the comfort of his recliner with his beautiful wife at his side, and Joy "Bundle" Brokes, who lost her battle with cancer surrounded by her children.

In loving memory of Jim, put on some big band music and enjoy a shot of good bourbon. His wishes are that his life be celebrated with a party which will be held at a later date.

In Joy's honor...Viewing will be on Monday, Sept. 20 from 6pm-8pm at McAlister-Smith Funeral home @1520 Rifle Range Rd, Mt Pleasant, SC 29464. Funeral service will be on Tuesday, Sept 21 at 10:30am, Christ Our King @1122 Russell Dr, Mt Pleasant, SC 29464. Interment will occur at a later date.

You will be missed, dear friends, on and off the dance floor. Until we meet again...may you fly with the angels and dance among the stars.
