Anne and Andy Walls met on the dance floor in 2004. With a shared passion for dancing, they opened their first business, Dance With Me, in 2005 and primarily focused on teaching couples to dance for their first dance.
They taught mostly out of their home and rented various venues for larger classes. In 2010, they opened the Savoy Ballroom. Their goal with the Savoy was to give Dance With Me a beautiful home and also to offer those in and around Springfield a beautiful, unique, and truly historic ballroom for hosting weddings and other special events.
Our namesake, “Savoy,” comes from the world-famous Savoy Ballroom, operating in New York City from 1926 to 1958. It was affectionately called the Home of Happy Feet.
The magnificent New York Savoy, with a proud reputation for music and dance, epitomized elegance and class and will forever be remembered for its timeless charm.
Our Savoy Ballroom features original maple hardwood floors, stunning 14-foot high tin ceilings, nine brilliant crystal chandeliers, and an impeccably landscaped courtyard. Elegance and charm in a quaint urban setting.
From weddings, proms, and graduation parties to milestone birthdays and anniversaries, the Savoy offers an elegant and picturesque setting to celebrate and connect with the people who matter most in your life.
Anne at the savoy made sure we had the most perfect day!! She was super helpful from day one and the venue was absolutely perfect! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a perfect venue for their special day!
The first place in the world that black and white walked through the door together was the Savoy. They were joined by a simple thing called Swing.
Wedding planning is stressful, but Anne and Andy made the process stress-free. I knew right away the Savoy Ballroom was the perfect place to celebrate our marriage. It is absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much for your assistance in making our big day so special!
Our wedding reception was beautifully situated at The Savoy Ballroom. The decor and courtyard were beautiful and Anne, Andy (and their team), are so friendly, open, flexible, and hospitable. We are so thankful for their patience during COVID and for making the date transition with ease. They are available any time of the day and very informative. Their pricing is perfect for such a beautiful location. We love them so much and 10/10 RECOMMEND!
