Opening up today’s program at 7am was Rita Bauer, Founder of The Hip Room.  Rita recently took the entrepreneurial dive leaving a career in Financial Services for a career leading a dance studio.  The studio, located in Tampa Heights, gives lessons on ballroom and ballet dancing and is located inside an 8000 square foot historic building with easy access to many of Tampa’s hidden treasures like Ulele Restaurant and the Hidden Springs Brewery.  Rita runs the operations and has two experienced instructors that give classes to men and women of all ages.  They have their Grand Opening celebration coming up on July 16th and the facility is open for rental use and is an excellent choice for wedding receptions and networking gatherings.  Give them a call today at 813-227-9600 or visit http://www.thehiproom.com for more information on the services and dance lessons available!
