‘A Dance To Remember’ holiday party benefits Rainbow Room of Rockwall County

Each December for the past 13 years, Margaret Kochan, owner of the A Dance To Remember Ballroom Dance Studio in Rockwall, invites her patrons to a complementary holiday party.  Margaret provides the location, the food and the music, and in return she asks her customers to donate to a charity of her choice.

This year, A Dance To Remember studio’s new home at 1505 Airport Road in Rockwall was the site of a festive party that allowed the dancers to share their blessings with the foster children who are assisted by the Rockwall County Rainbow Room.

Carol Miskin, President of the Rainbow Room Board of Directors, expressed her appreciation to the generous donors.  The same day as the items were being collected, an additional five local children were placed in foster care.  The toys, school supplies and clothing came in handy, just in time for Christmas!

Margaret (Malgorzata) Kochan established A Dance To Remember studio in Rockwall in 2008. She has been teaching ballroom dancing since 1991. In Poland, she received her training from the Academy of Physical Education in Krakow, and the School of Arts and Culture, in Warsaw. In the US, she earned an Advanced Ballroom Teaching Certification from Fred Astaire Dance Studios, Inc. Margaret specializes in all American and International Ballroom styles as well as Argentine Tango, West Coast Swing, Carolina Shag, Country & Western and Cardio Ballroom.
