Class on Hold

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. With the holidays quickly approaching, it seems that we have a lot of scheduling conflicts for our group. So, unfortunately, we will be canceling class for the rest of December. As most of you know, I am pregnant, and the baby just keeps getting bigger:) I was planning on getting a sub for part of January and all of February, but have been unable to find one. After some discussion with the owner of the studio, we feel that it will be best to put our class on hold until at least March. I was up most of the night last night trying to figure out another way of working this out, but I feel like this is the best option we've been able to come up with. If any of you have any other suggestions, please let me know. My students have been making a ton of progress and it has been so much fun to work with them. I hope you will continue to practice on your own. If you have any questions or can't remember which steps we've worked on, please feel free to email or call me.

I wish you all a happy holiday season. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Here is the email I got from Robert, the owner of Ambiant Dance yesterday! It looks like we had Dancing With The Stars filming at our studio! Wow! We're famous!

Dear Jessica,

What a way to start off our Anniversary week!

We had the pleasure of hosting DWTS in the studio Friday & Saturday. Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas were in the house working on their routines for tonights show. It was truly amazing to watch the process. The surprise was having her whole family pop in to watch the rehearsal. I put a couple of pictures on Facebook, but check out the show tonight and see if they show some studio clips. It was fun.

None of this would have been possible if it were not for the unselfish help from all of the instructors here. I really appreciate how well you moved 50 lessons and 2 group classes around without a fuss, and did it all on no notice. You guys and gals are really the "dancing stars."

I'm guessing by now you have figured out we were not spraying for termites Friday...

Sorry for the little fib.

Well, have a dance filled week and I hope to see you all at the 3rd Anniversary Party this Friday Night.

My Best to you all.

Class Cancelled this Saturday, November 6th

I got a call last night that the studio will be undergoing some spraying for bugs and termites this Saturday, so our class is being cancelled. I'm very sorry to tell you without much notice, but I'd rather have you be safe and away from fumes. :) So, no class Saturday, November 6th.

We will have class November 13th. I am going to bring a copy of our video and some treats for the last 15 minutes or so of class. You gals did a GREAT job on Saturday!! I got a TON of positive comments. I know some of you were scared and worried, but you did a great job!!! Everyone at the studio loved it. Some people even asked me where you all went after the show because they wanted to tell you what a fun dance it was! Way to go! I am very proud of you! I'll be posting it on the blog as soon as I can figure out how to do that. :)

As far as the rest of November goes, we will not have class on November 20th or 27th due to the Thanksgiving/Fall break. We will start up back in December on December 4th.

Money for November will just be the $15 for the November 13th class.

We have been having our Saturday classes for about 2 months now. They are going really well. We could definitely use some more men! Please feel free to come any week. Try it out for a week and see if you like it. We've been doing Foxtrot and Cha Cha. I've got some pretty consistent girls coming, so guys, you'll love the odds:)
