Duluth, Minnesota – The Simply Ballroom in Lincoln Park hosted its first art show of the year. Since opening the dance studio in October, we have welcomed artists from all over Northland each month to showcase their work.
This month’s featured artist is a member of Duluth’s TBI Residential and Community Services, created by people who have suffered traumatic brain injuries. The Art Gallery opened its doors in the ballroom on Friday, with tonight being its final showing. In addition to art exhibitions, community members were able to attend free group dance classes.
“Like dancing, it can be a little tricky to put yourself out there, and the more comfortable you feel in a place that supports you, the more likely you are to grow. It’s what we’re trying to support as a community that grows,” said Simply Ballroom owner David Scherar.
Dances from tango to foxtrot were taught by instructors in free classes.
Simply Ballroom is a competitive studio that teaches private and group sessions. Private lessons must be booked online or in person.
