Owner of Ballroom & Latin Dance Club  has moved to  a larger location in Bloomington, MN. She says,

” I did everything myself: designing the dance space, ordering all the materials, building and maintaining the website, designing the logo and all flyers, marketing, designing lessons/parties, teaching, and investing/managing! It has been a challenge for me but a great experience in my life. I am really happy to make so many great friends through teaching dance. I changed my hobby to a career! All my old friends/co-workers cannot believe it (Before I moved to the USA 15 years ago, I was the general manager of Human Resources of a famous international education group in China.", 952-292-0524, 507-990-5167
