Welcome to 2020!
Hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are now refreshed and ready jump into a new season of dancing!
Feeling a bit sluggish? Well, this is why the January Jump is going to be a perfect add on to your month;) Not only have we added a few new classes like the Rhythm and Groove class and an extra Crochet class for you crafty sort, but we're also adding a free extra something to the start of all your classes for the moth of January. We're going to Jive our way through the month and try to beat up on those inevitable January slumps. (And maybe a few calories along the way too!)
Here's what's happening:
We have scheduled a ten minute slot before the start of every group class to get people just moving and shaking some of that blah energy out. Many of you have been asking about some more Jive classes so each day we will introduce one basic Jive element and get you dancing it for those ten minutes before the start of your class. Consider it a warm up. By the end of the month, you should feel pretty good about keeping up with some basic Jive tempos.
AND! That's not all - of course! We're going to keep track of all of our steps for each session and see just how many we can get in for the month of January. Let's see if we can add an additional 5000 steps to our month by just Jiving through January! Let's do it!
Monday Classes in January have a new location
*Please note that all Monday classes this month, will be held at our Clarkson location:

And happy birthday wishes to all who are celebrating this month!
And look what else is happening!
You can find the link for tickets here:
We'd also like to introduce to you our new receptionist:
You will see a lovely new face at our reception desk beginning this coming week. Make sure to stop in and say hi and introduce yourselves.
Oh and just one more thing as we move forward into a new year and a new decade of dance.
****A little note about group classes missed.****
We know how much you enjoy dancing with the gang and our group classes are always a great giggle as well as very informative so we get that when you miss a class, there's great motivation to making up the time. However, we will be sticking to our policy of offering no credits for group classes missed. There is much preparation and financial commitment involved in organizing our classes and it is not economically viable to offer credits for classes you miss.

Weather-related cancellations will be treated very similarly. In the event of a cancellation due to bad weather - as we experienced a few last winter - we will do our best to make sure that a make-up class will happen within that same month. Please be aware that if you cannot attend the make-up, we cannot offer you an additional class or a credit of any kind. Our financial commitments do not waiver when there is bad weather, so it presents a challenge to fulfill these commitments when individual students are requesting personalized credits and schedule adjustments. All make-ups will take place within that same month.
We're keeping our fingers crossed that we will get through this winter without any cancellations. Here's hoping!
In the meantime, we're looking forward to jumping into January with you all!
See you on the dance floor!
