    Announcing the opening of G & J Dance Studios in Hillsborough, NJ!


    The studio will open to the public with a Social on Saturday, September 29th, including a lesson at 7:30 followed by ballroom/latin/hustle/salsa dancing from 8:00-11:00.

    Owners Marek Gabor & Denisa Jancusova are not only exceptional competitive ballroom dancers, but are well-known for being two of the nicest people in the dance community. :D

    The studio is in a lovely brand-new warehouse facility with high ceilings and a large floating dance floor. Only an hour from Manhattan (and an hour and a quarter from Philadelphia), it's close enough for both NYC/North Jersey and Philly area dancers to enjoy!

    For everyone in the area, please come... bring lots of friends... and stay tuned for details of their Grand Opening Event, coming soon.

    Hope to see you there!

    If it's not too late, I'm planning on stopping by after my showcase, even if it's just to say hi as the evening ends. I want to give your pro support of his new studio. I also understand my pro is planning on attending.

    I stopped by the studio last night to pick up a dress your pro's partner had hemmed for me. The new lighting is very cool. Your pro demonstrated them for me and it's going to be a VERY NICE dance place!!! I'm so glad to have such a nice studio in this part of New Jersey.

    that's good news, luce... hope you can make it! and i was hoping your pro would be able to make it.

    yes, there's the new lighting, plus they've put up some bamboo blinds around certain structural elements way up high... gives a nice warm feel to the place.

    they also have a changing room, which is a nice feature. :D

    Thinking of checking out their social this Saturday night - my friend is "working the door" for Marek and Denisa. I missed last week's, but hear the turnout was pretty good.

    if it's your friend who's hosting the socials when M & D are competing... i know her, too, and was tickled to hear she'd be doing that! you'll have to PM me if you decide to go, NJDG. :)

    can't make it this saturday, tho. friend's b-day. big pah-tay. ;)

    M&D and G&G are competing in CT this weekend.

    Yes, thats her - she loves to play hostess, so this is perfect for her and for them since they'll be able to continue having socials when they are out of town competing. She and I met about two years ago at her previous studio, everyone's "previous studio" it seems, and have been great friends ever since.

    Maybe we'll meet up there another time then...

    My pro/partner was going to, but looks like they are just competing with students instead. Is the turnout big? Had considered driving up to go watch, but will probably go dancing instead.

    I remeber Marek and Denisa when they briefly worked in Boston a couple of years ago. I am glad they are doing well with their dance business. I hope its a smashing success for years to come.
