Boxers and Ballerinas Will Open Flagship Location in Times Square

Los Angeles-Based Boxers & Ballerinas, Inc. Will Open Its First Kid's Dance Studio and Boxing Gym in the Heart of Studio City, California in Times Square Center

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - August 6, 2008) - Boxers & Ballerinas, founded by entrepreneur and former professional ballet dancer Rebekah Iliff and champion prizefighter Ricky "Showtime" Quiles, has announced the Grand Opening of its flagship location on September 2, 2008. Situated just steps from bustling Ventura Boulevard in the heart of Studio City, California, the dance studio and boxing gym combo will offer kids, teens, and young adults a variety of classes and specialty workshops as well as birthday parties and private training.

"Our main goal is to provide a fun, positive atmosphere for kids and teens to get fit using the age-old art forms of ballet and boxing. Our classes are rooted in solid technique, but will be infused with modern elements to keep students interested and enthusiastic about exercise," remarked President and Executive Director, Rebekah Iliff. Added co-founder Ricky Quiles: "Many people don't realize how athletic ballet is, or that boxing is truly an art... so what we're doing is taking the positive elements of these seemingly opposing things and creating something different while encouraging commitment to health and fitness rather than the competitive aspects."

Boxers & Ballerinas is located on the second floor in Times Square Center and is surrounded by popular Studio City businesses including VoiceTrax West, Yogurt Haven, A Touch Of Gold Tanning, Tease Hair Studio, and Jeremiah Comey Film Acting Studio. In-person registration and reservations for the Fall Session will take place from August 25th-August 29th at the new location: 12215 Ventura Blvd., Suite 207. The majority of classes are for ages 3-17, while some adult classes are available. All new students will receive a free trial class. For more information visit:
