Auburn Hills Chiropractor Celebrates 8 Years of Practice…With a Dance Party at Fred Astaire
The event was planned in combination with Evan Mountain, owner of Fred Astaire, and featured ballroom dance lessons from a certified ballroom instructor, and a ballroom performance from Para Dance competitors Andrew Downs and Aubrey (of Fred Astaire) who are the first US representatives to the Para Dance Sport Championships in Europe November 2019.
The anniversary event benefited Para Dance and RIM Foundation
Attendees gathered, ate, and a danced as they were able, all while enjoying games and prizes from other local businesses. Included in the evening was the opportunity to donate and benefit the RIM Foundation and the Dance Mobility Program, whose mission to teach ballroom dance to those who are wheelchair bound. Katie Spillane Knight, Vice President at RIM Foundation, was in attendance for the evening.
Dr. Zachary Ward was inspired to hold this event at Fred Astaire after caring for several ballroom dance competitors and instructors and learning the research behind the health benefits of ballroom dance for both aerobic health and mental function.
After seeing a portion of Andrew and Aubrey’s performance, attendees had an opportunity to take a group salsa lesson Dee-jayed by Super Dave the DJ, or enjoy the photo-booth. Zippy the balloon twister was there, shaping balloon animals and other objects for the kids in attendance.
The following businesses made special donations for the event.
