Linda Crystal, Owner/Designer
Owning a Fred Astaire Dance Studios for 13 years, teaching ballroom dance, plus competing both pro/am & professionally for many years, I have won numerous awards for my competitive dancing & teaching skills, & in 1994 decided to venture out on my own. Although it was a very wise decision, for many reasons… I will treasure the years there…. plus all those who have helped me develop the fine teaching & dancing skills I now possess.
With that experience I’m aware what styles look best on my clients for their particular body type plus style of dance or dances they are performing, as well as their needs for comfort at their level of dance & budget.
With my background of creating fashions since I was a young girl…plus being in the ballroom dance business since 1981, I have created & feature a line of exquisite, custom designed fashions available for Latin,tango,ballroom,swing & country dancing with several other categories such as men’s latin shirts, social fashions & more, as well as for any special occasion. I do custom work for skaters & solo dancers as well!
You can choose from existing designs or we can work together to create whatever you desire from classic,conservative & simple to very ornate, elaborate & risque…plus anywhere in between to suit your personality, event & budget!!
Customer satisfaction is a priority! I give my clients exclusive, undivided, special attention! Consulting with you…giving very special attention to your individual needs & desires for style,color, fit & budget…from the simple designs for beginner show dancers or those who desire simplicity, to the very ornate, elaborate for the more seasoned dancer who desire to sparkle & shine with a lot of glitz & glamour… to assure you are satisfied… plus feel like a star!!
Once your design is done & delivered or picked up…if there are any adjustments of any kind that need addressed…they are taken care of in a timely matter!
The designs I create are done so with a deep passion & it gives me great pleasure to also custom create for my clients!
Although I specialize in custom work, I have a private showroom filled with an array of gorgeous designs all ready made in various sizes & categories!
So…if you are in the area I welcome you to make an appointment to visit the showroom with plenty of private time to try on as many fashions you desire, along with undivided & personalized attention! It is well worth a trip to experience an enchanting journey! Many of my clients remark “It’s like a ballroom dress candy store…so many yummy choices!”
This is the entry before the main showroom!
A strong belief is giving my students all the material they can comfortably handle, plus having a very friendly, warm & relaxed atmosphere!!!.
Private or semi-private lessons are offered by appointment at various venues.
Group classes of 8-40 can be held at your special event or venue. At this current moment in time I teach part time on Fridays or Saturdays. ( visit our event page )
Wedding couples are a specialty, choreographing dances for the bride & groom & father of the bride dances.
“Dancesport“…or competition dancing is also a specialty! If you love performing with a deep passion,…as I do… get ready to”dance like the stars!!”
