On September 29, 2018, the Prestige Dancers performed to a crowd of 300 for the Affinia Healthcare’s Starburst Gala at the STIFEL Theater (Peabody Opera House). A fun time was had by all. The guests were so thrilled with the dance performances that they recorded most of the dances and 2 beginner programs sold quickly in the live auction following the dancing. For the performers, it was an amazing experience to perform on a stage that has hosted so many stars of the entertainment world and in a theater that is iconic for St. Louis. The Prestige Ballroom Dancers performed Tango, Cha Cha, Waltz, Rumba,Viennese Waltz, and Foxtrot. Our studio ham, Matt Morgan, was the emcee for the performances. In order not to miss even the smallest opportunity to sing in the STIFEL Theater, Catherine had to belt out a few measures from an opera!

We are pleased to announce Catherine Griffith as one of our new ballroom instructors and the new studio manager. Catherine joined the studio in early April. In addition to a degree in vocal music, she has undergrad and graduate degrees in biology and history, but dance is her first love. Being able to share dance is a great joy in her life, and performing dance is a sublime experience. In addition to ballroom, she has ballet, tap, jazz, musical theater, and many other styles to her credit. She is thrilled to be dancing as a part of the Prestige community!
This Oktoberfest is going to be a blast! Pretzel Boys will be providing pretzels, and you can bring the beer and snacks you like! For current members of the studio, bring a guest and have a chance to play “das Leiderspiel” to win group or private lessons! The staff will be dressed in our best Liederhosen and teaching Polka, so join us in the costuming if you dare! RSVP here, on the FB event page, or call the studio to let us know you’re coming! And did I mention, it’s free?!!
