How did your business get started? After experiencing the joys of salsa and Latin dance for about 12 years,
I began to "give back" for all the wonderful things it has given me. I
now teach Latin dance throughout the metro Detroit area, as well as
perform at corporate, private, and group events with my tropical island
music band, the Island Fun Band.
What services does your business provide? Group lessons, private and semi-private lessons in salsa, cha-cha-chá,
and bachata. My Island Fun Band provides the tropical vacation-feel of
steel drums, keyboard & percussion. We play salsa, reggae, soca,
Jimmy Buffett, R&B, and several other styles. We also provide DJ
services for well-rounded entertainment to fit any budget. What do you want your business to be best known for? Providing the best in Latin dance instruction and entertainment in town! I
am known for being a very patient teacher for beginning level students,
and was nominated as "Best Beginning Level Instructor" at the Detroit
What's your most popular service? Providing Latin dance instruction, and entertainment with the Island Fun Band.
Why did you choose the location that you did? Although I teach throughout metro Detroit in various locations,
including a studio in Southfield for private lessons, I teach a
progressive, 6-week class session several times throughout the year.
Held in the dance studio at the West Bloomfield Jewish Community Center,
I have been associated with this room for many years (I was previously
the Assistant Director for the Festival Dancers of Metropolitan
Detroit--a Jewish cultural, performing dance group. We held our classes
and rehearsals there.) This is a wonderful room and great location for
many of my students, centrally located and easy to find. For more information, call 248-497-9463 or email email@example.com. You also can check out Mambo Marci at www.mambomarci.com and Island Fun Band at www.islandfunband.com.
