Longtime Midland real estate agent Victoria Printz picked up dancing as a hobby two years ago. Just six months into her training, she began to dance competitively, channeling her passion for dance into a means of giving back to the community.
In this short time, she’s managed to buy and create her own personal dance space, The Ballroom Dance Studio, which has quickly become the site of in-demand dance classes and see-and-be-seen charity events, including the upcoming 2nd Annual Queen of Hearts Ball benefiting SeniorLink – a homebound services provider that works to improve the quality of life for seniors in Midland.
“There are so many great things about ballroom dancing,” says Victoria Printz, owner of The Victoria Printz Team Realtors and The Ballroom Dance Studio. “I love the fashion, the exercise for the body and mind, the fun, the comradery between ballroom dancers around the country, and most of all the freedom of losing myself in something I love other than work.”
Victoria holds four annual events in her private studio and says everyone enjoys getting dressed up and socializing while they can eat, drink, dance, or observe the performers. “I just loving being able to provide the place for everyone to get to get together,” she adds. “We support various Midland charities by having guests bring donations to all of our events. It has been very successful!”
You can watch Victoria and her dance partner Giorgi Khmiadashvili – a distinguished World Champion specializing in International Latin Dance – put on a show Friday, Feb. 2, from 7-11 p.m. at The Ballroom Dance Studio located at 4400 N. Big Spring #C38 in Midland.
The 2nd Annual Queen of Hearts Ball is open to the public with a request for donations to enter. There will be dinner, drinks, and dancing, plus Victoria and Giorgi’s showcase performance at 9 p.m.
