Studio Warming was Good for Dance
Our Studio Warming at Dance Dimensions in Norwalk, CT was very fun and successful. We had good attendance for our Salsa, Hustle, and West Coast Swing classes and we had some regulars come to the dance afterwards.
The goal for the day was to a) bring attention to fun dance classes that we host at Dance Dimensions and b) to introduce dancers to Salsa, Hustle, and West Coast Swing. We were successful in both endeavors. We had dancers (some familiar, some new) who had never been to Dance Dimension's new location at 15 Cross Street. And, we had dancers who were familiar with one dance and were trying out dances with which they were unfamiliar.
I declare that "Winter is Over"
At the beginning of our Salsa, Hustle, and West Coast Swing, I thanked all attendees for being a part of the day. Since it was the first day that the temperature rose above 32 degrees and the forecast for the up coming week was going to get into the 40s, I decided to declare that "winter is over". Personally, I hope that we have seen our last snow storm of this season. We have made it through numerous cancellations of what should be compounding and momentum-based learning. We have lost almost 2 months of community building because of the inclement weather. But, that all changes now.
Week 1 for Hustle and West Coast Swing
Now that the winter weather is behind us, I am looking forward to consistent Hustle and West Coast Swing dancing for the rest of the year. Our Week 1 classes start this week (since they were cancelled last week) and I am looking forward to seeing many of the new people that I met at the Studio Warming and many of the regulars who have been busy shoveling snow.
