Dance With Me, a dance studio that teaches a wide variety of partner dances with group or private lessons in everything from Cha Cha to Waltz to even Argentine Tango, sent four dancers to Lord & Taylor on High Ridge Rd in Stamford on Saturday. In fact, other than teaching people how to bust out a few new moves, one of the founders of the studio is Maks from the television series Dancing with the Stars!
Maksim “Maks” Chmerkovskiy, Tony Dovolani, and Valentin “Val” Chmerkovskiy are all partners and coaches for the venture.
Saturday’s live demonstration took shoppers by storm from 2:00 to 4:00pm, offering them an afternoon of Shopping, Prizes, & More! at “Shop & Shimmy.”
Meredith Landphair, the Manager of the Stamford Dance With Me location, one of the four dancers at the event, said that the school likes getting out in the community and spreading a positive energy.
Dance With Me holds various dance events and competitions every year, while this was the first year Lord & Taylor has held an in-store event, every year the make up counter staff volunteers to do make up for Dance With Me events.
Though Lord & Taylor currently undergoing renovations, the focus was on the Shop & Shimmy on Saturday.
Lord & Taylor is located at 110 High Ridge Rd, Stamford, CT 06905
