Tuesday Group Classes Delayed for One Week

The original plan was to hold the group classes tonight but after being on the roads and trying to park in the studio parking lot this afternoon, I’ve decided to delay these group classes until next week when things have had a chance to thaw out.
TLDR: Don’t show up tonight, it’s too icy!

Reminder: February Open Dance Night Is Saturday the 4th!

This is your reminder that February’s Open Dance Night will be taking place on Saturday, February 4th at Academy of Dance. The party starts at 6pm with an hour long lesson which will cover Fox Trot and Rumba which will be followed by two hours of open dancing/guided practice.

As an added bonus to this event, Candid Cruz Photography will be on hand to take pictures of all the dancers so dress to impress! As always, admission to the event is only $5.
