Many of you have heard our recent news…

Paramount Ballroom Company will no longer be operating from 9860 Quivira.  We have closed our studio doors, and are continuing as an independent company just as many other area instructors do.  We will be based out of the centrally located, Kansas City Swing and Tango space in Mission, Kansas. We as a couple and as a business are dedicated to continue doing what we do best, “Painting the Town,” training our students, and raising our family.  A very special thanks to all of our loyal students and patrons, that are starting us out on this new chapter with a strong and diverse student body.  We are already have a busy schedule, with several brand new special events in the works.  Please refer to our calendar, located on the Home Page, to find our current class schedule starting in December 2012.  And don’t forget to check back often for special events!

Paramount Ballroom Company has a very exciting announcement to make!

We are very happy and excited to have found the perfect space  for our own studio!  And it feels amazing to finally be able to say it!  Dreams of what it would be like and how we would do things rolled around our heads as we constantly peered into the windows of vacant commercial spaces.  We always hoped that the next one would be “the one.”  It seemed like it would never happen for us.  So you would not believe how excited we were when we made the last stop of a very busy day, on a complete whim, to find THIS empty space had a complete wall full of floor to ceiling mirrors!  There was no question we had finally found “the one.”  We started the process, crossed our fingers and said our prayers, and waited…and waited…and waited.  Timing could not have been better when we got the call.  Right smack in the middle of the Heart of America Dancesport Championships!  We were so happy to be able to make the announcement and toast our new business as “Paramount Paint[ed] the Town” with some of our closest dance friends and students.

Now about the space!  We will be located at 9860 Quivira across the street from Oak Park Mall. The studio is a perfect square with about 1400 square feet of pure dance floor.  We will offer group classes and private lessons to juniors and adults, Zumba® fitness classes, coaching sessions with some of today’s top professionals, and weekend parties to make sure that your learning stays fun!  Everyone is welcome, as always, and we look forward to seeing you all at our grand opening!  Stay posted to our Facebook Fan Page to join in the conversation about our progress.  And please spread the word, business grows most by word of mouth!  Thank you all for your support!
