ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Don’t you want to dance with somebody?  A dance studio in downtown is offering free classes in the middle of the street to celebrate National Dance Day.

Downtown St. Louis Organizers encouraged Dollhouse Studios to host one free event a month in efforts to provide an opportunity for business owners and the community to network.  Dance studio co-owner Lisa Potts, developed the concept of having a fitness class open to the public in the middle of a downtown street.

In only one year the number of participants walking up and working out at the Zumba Party, lead by fitness instructor Miriam Ross, has more than doubled. She explains that Zumba is not simply a fad but a fun alternative to traditional cardio workouts; “People can’t help but to watch and join in.”

Held every fourth Thursday of the Summer, The Dollhouse Studios invites the entire St. Louis community to try one of the fastest growing fitness craves by hosting a Zumba dance party in the middle of 15th St.  at Washington Ave.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
