In exciting news for the Orange County dance community, Shesha and Nikki Marvin, owners of Atomic Ballroom in Irvine, are opening an additional location in historic downtown Fullerton on August 1st 2018! The venue will be called Atomic Ballroom Fullerton.
Previously at that location was Fullerton DanceSport Center. It was also the home of Inspiration Weekend, the largest annual swing dance weekend in Orange County. Atomic Ballroom will be retaining the DanceSport Instructors and adding them to the Atomic family.
Nikki Marvin said she first discovered what was then called the Imperial Ballroom in 2006 when she and Shesha were looking for venue for their new event, Inspiration Weekend.
“The ballroom was so beautiful and Art Deco, the floor was perfect, and the atmosphere outside was not just another strip mall dance studio, but a historic downtown ballroom. I knew in my dream of dreams that one day I would love to own a space like this. This was two years before we took on ATOMIC Irvine.”
“Here we are 12 years later and that dream, that I didn’t think could be possible, is becoming a reality. I am so thankful for the support of our ATOMIC Ballroom community all these years especially those who were with us back when we were the OC Swing Dance Club, where I started as a member. Who still has their card?”
In addition to the existing partner dance classes, Shesha said that “Atomic Ballroom Fullerton will offer Lindy Hop classes, weekly dance practices following the classes, and special big swing nights.”
Lesson credits will be kept separate between the Irvine and Fullerton studios.
