Morten Jensen, his wife Mira, and business partner Samanta Rico come from different parts of the world — Morten from Denmark, Mira from Bulgaria, and Samanta from Argentina. They met while living and working in Connecticut and connected over a love of dance.
The three opened Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Bentonville in March 2020, at the forefront of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Whether through virtual lessons or socially-distanced group sessions, Morten, Mira, and Samanta hope to bring their new community beloved forms of dance stemming from around the world.
Here's Morten teaching us more about the Waltz.
