and a Stronger Connection Through Dance!

Right Star

 While searching for an activity to do together Lorie Slomovitz and Dennis Reeb found a hobby -- ballroom dancing. Ten years ago, they became a couple. They both liked to dance but felt uncomfortable dancing together, especially in social dance situations. After signing up for two free lessons at an outside event, they later enrolled in the Fred Astaire Social Foundation program. They not only found renewed confidence in their dance abilities, but also a new set of friends at the Westerville Fred Astaire Dance Studio.

For the last seven months, Lorie & Dennis are regulars at the studio taking two lessons per week and attending weekly groups and parties. They also participated in a small studio event and will be attending the Holiday Trophy Ball. They are among several students who will be honored for their dancing achievements this past year.

Dance was not new to Lorie; as a young child she took ballet and tap. Dennis had no previous dance experience but his knowledge of music from years of studying piano helped him learn quickly.

Since beginning this journey, they have progressed to the social bronze program. This program is designed for the dancer who wants to look natural and effortless and be able to dance on any size dance floor, to any type of music and with any partner with confidence and poise.

“We are so proud of Lorie & Dennis,” said Instructor Sam Walker. “They share such a wonderful connection together and it shows through their dancing.”

With Lorie & Dennis's busy work schedules they appreciate the studio's late hours and scheduling flexibility. Owner Amy Jordan and Sam Walker often teach the couple separately with their lessons starting at 8:45PM.

“Our goal when we started dancing was to have fun, learn new dance steps and, most of all, feel more confident on the dance floor,” said Lorie.

“It has been a very rewarding experience for us," added Dennis. "We would encourage other couples to take lessons because not only is it so much fun but it also gives couples that special time together to connect."

Off the dance floor, Lorie and Dennis keep themselves busy with their professions and personal hobbies. Lorie is a CPA working for an insurance agency for the past 25 years and Dennis is self-employed where he manages family properties and owns his own trucking and farming operation. On their days off aside from dancing, they enjoy watching sporting events and spending time with family and their grandchildren. Lorie also enjoys martial arts where she holds a second degree black belt in Taekwondo.
