“Time for a New Dance in Life – Dixie Dance Company”
After a successful nine-year run as owner of “Dixie Dance,” Meghan Anderson set for a new phase in life.
Time for a New Dance
For the past nine years, Meghan Anderson has owned and operated “Dixie Dance Company” in Oxford. First coming to the dance studio as a student employee during her college days, Meghan took advantage of an excellent opportunity in ‘04: becoming owner of the dance studio (formerly Oxford Tumble and Dance). It’s been a great run being able to teach young girls in Oxford and meet many wonderful students, families, and teachers she now proudly calls friends.
Alas, the time has come for a well-deserved, new phase in Meghan’s life. Following summer classes and camps on July 31st, she will finally part ways as owner of “Dixie Dance Company.”
However, she ultimately hopes that someone else in the community will step up and seize the chance to take over the successful business and community service she has offered for nine years.
An Enjoyable Journey, Full of Great Memories
Writing this article as Meghan’s husband is a special opportunity. She has put in countless hours of blood, sweat, and tears over the years building “Dixie Dance” into the successful, profitable business it is today. I’m extremely proud of all she has accomplished. Her drive and passion to teach little girls cheer, dance, gymnastics, and tap among other skills has been second to none.
Meghan has owned and operated “Dixie Dance” through many phases in her life: receiving undergraduate and master degrees, getting married, buying a home, and giving birth to two precious little girls (Chloe & Griffen). Throughout it all, the dance studio has been an integral part of her life. She has enjoyed being able to provide Oxford families with a fun place to send their kids for cheer, dance, gymnastics, tumbling, and more, while she has also enjoyed being able to watch her students (including her daughter, Chloe) grow both at the dance studio and in life.
Shifting Focus for the Future
Having received a Master of Arts in Community Counseling from Ole Miss in ’06, Meghan has concurrently run a second business in Oxford as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Registered Play Therapist (RPT) for a few years now. The dance studio owner and licensed counselor has done a true juggling act since starting a family of her own four years ago. An act she has done with great success.
While she’s done a tremendous job working double-duty to serve the community, she recently made the very personal, emotional decision to leave the studio in order to dedicate more time to her family, young children, and counseling career at Anderson Family Counseling in Oxford.
Looking for a New Face
While Meghan will step away from “Dixie Dance” this summer, it’s her personal hope that someone else in the community steps forward and keeps the dance studio open for future students. She feels that another capable, dedicated individual can find the same personal and professional gains in life she has at “Dixie Dance.” If not though, the studio will close after a great nine-year run on July 31st.
If anyone is interested in the opportunity of taking over the studio or knows someone that is, Meghan Anderson urges you to contact her very soon. (firstname.lastname@example.org or 662-236-1032).
The equipment is there, the teachers are there, and the business is there, now the right person just needs to step in and begin a new journey in her own life.
As for Meghan, she looks forward to a new journey of her own both at home with her family and further pursuing her career as a professional counselor in town.
