Blairsville School of Dance

Lot s of dancing going on at Blairsville School of Dance

From the Tango to Hip Hop, there's something for everybody at Blairsville School of Dance. If you've ever wanted to dance, this is the place to learn. There's Ballroom, Latin, clogging, ballet, and more. All you have to do is sign up for a class and give it a whirl.

At the recent grand opening, Blairsville Union County Chamber of Commerce President Cindy Williams presented Blairsville School of Dance Director Angela Puleo with a red ribbon and pair of oversized scissors. Ambassadors, friends, members of the business community, and family posed together for a photo to commemorate the occasion.

Blairsville School of Dance offers a great lineup of summer and fall classes. Want to learn the Foxtrot, Tango, East Coast Swing, Rumba, or Cha Cha? Beginners are welcome and opportunity for competition is provided along with a year-end recital. Several performances are given each year in which students may participate. There are field trips, class parties, and cook-outs. Owner Angela Puleo says, "We believe that by fostering a sense of community, our students not only have fun, but perform better as a group. They gain lasting friendships."

Pre-registration is recommended, as class space is limited and classes fill up early. Dancewear and shoes are sold onsite. There are classes for children age three and up as well as for adults and teenagers. Classes are small to provide individual instruction. Private lessons are also available.

The school has a couple of excellent competitive dance teams - Hip Hop and Precision Clogging. Both teams hold auditions in August for the upcoming season. Involvement in competitive dance helps teach discipline, good sportsmanship, and confidence.

Angela Puleo is well qualified to direct a dance school. She has been dancing since she was two and has won competitions in International Latin and is also a Grand Champion Clogger.

Angela and Joe Puleo have been in the Blairsville area for 3 years. Joe recently opened the neighboring Napoli 's Deli and treated guests to delicious sandwiches and deli fare. Angela works as Community Manager for the American Cancer Society. She adds, "I'll keep my day job, but this is my dream. I've always wanted to open a dance studio."

Blairsville School of Dance is happy to take part in the ribbon cutting tradition offered by the Chamber of Commerce. The ceremony provides an easy way for chamber members to do some friendly networking.
