Hey dancers! I can't believe it's already November! Where did the year go?!
I'm not sure exactly how October went by so quickly, but we did do quite a lot in our group classes, and I'm happy to report that the step lists are officially up! You can check them out by looking at this blog, or by going to our Lesson Recaps page.
Well, we are soon approaching the holiday weeks! Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year's Eve: they're all coming up and that means loads of opportunities to dance! So keep on coming to our group classes, and sign up for our flexible private lessons, so you can prepare for those holiday parties!
Sadly, we have to cancel our Thursday classes on November 23rd, due to Thanksgiving (I know that I myself won't be able to move, much less dance after all that turkey!) However, Michele's Salsa Night is still happening on Black Friday (November 24th), so you'll have a chance to dance off all that food!
Speaking of holidays, it's not too early to remind you of our Annual New Year's Eve Party! That's right, we're doing our Potluck Party again! Champagne, food, dancing....it's been a huge success in the past, and we're hoping it'll be a huge success again! So, mark your calendars!
In other news, Open Studio Hartford is happening this month! That's right, on November 11th and 12th art studios will have a wonderful opportunity to advertise their wares and services! We'll be participating as well, and we want people to see us dancing, which is why we're offering a 20% discount on all private lessons that are happening during this awesome weekend, so book a lesson with either Nate or Lisa today! And also don't forget that there will be a salsa workshop on November 11th, starting at 3pm. We hope you can join us on this happy weekend, celebrating the arts and an active lifestyle!
One final announcement: our salsa rueda workshop needs more dancers! We're still going to do a half-hour lesson at $5 per person, but we're thinking of maybe having the workshop at an earlier time to make it easier to attend, perhaps during Sunday afternoons before the group classes, instead of at the end of the night. If this change happens, it will probably start on January. How does everyone feel about that? What time should we do it? Please leave a comment below letting us know what you think!
Well, that's it for now! We'll be seeing you on the dance floor!
