Peggy Rose Academy of Dance and Acrobatics has been sold to long time instructor and dance team coach Margo Ruark for an undisclosed amount and will reopen for the fall season as ¡Baila Conmigo! / Dance With Me!
The Peggy Rose Academy of Dance has been a pillar of the Berwyn business community for 45 years. “We are grateful for the legacy of high-quality dance instruction and community involvement that Peggy Rose has left us,” says new owner Margo Ruark. “¡Baila Conmigo! / Dance With Me! honors the history of the studio while very much looking forward to the future. The new name both invites and inspires! We’re all about bringing people together for fun, freedom, and community.”
Peggy Rose Kwiatek, founder states that “The studio is in good hands with Margo Ruark as the new owner and studio director. She is already a familiar face at the studio and has been a great contributor over the last seven years as a teacher, performer, and choreographer. As a businesswoman she’s putting together a great team.”
"The rebranded studio is a reflection of the community at large. With Berwyn and Cicero being largely Hispanic and Spanish speaking, we will immediately hire bilingual front desk staff to welcome new and returning dance families.” says Ruark.
A Grand Opening Celebration is planned for the fall. More details will be posted on the studio's website www.dancewithme.fun.
