We're in Business!



The studio doors were officially opened to the public for the first time yesterday! Thank you to those of you who were able to join us. I hope you were able to get a glimpse into its potential, and that your questions were answered. I'm here if you have any further questions. I'm happy with the progress of the space and excited to start making new memories there with each of you.


I have simplified the way you navigate the classes tab on the website. I hope this will make it easier to see your options and choose the right fit for your family. This week we'll be putting the finishing touches on the dance space, and next week, we start dancing!
