Sometimes you think you have a plan in place and then...life happens.
As we've been letting folks know over the past few weeks, we originally intended to shut down the studio through August due to overlapping absences at the start of the month. Ann is heading to glorious Scandinavia to enjoy a fabulous once-in-a-lifetime vacation, and Mel was supposed to be gone for two weeks for a work trip.
The good news is Ann is still going on her vacation. However, Mel's work trip canceled at the last minute.
That means that instead of closing down the studio as we had originally planned, Move2Center will be offering a reduced schedule through August 28.
What does this mean for our 8:15am weekday? We have you covered. If you normally come to our 8:15am classes, simply sign up for one of Mel's classes and you'll get the replay link to dance on your own time. This means that if you usually dance on Monday morning, sign up for Mel's 10:30am Sunday class the day before and you'll have the link ready for you on Monday morning. We realize that some people who dance the replays from Monday classes do so on Tuesdays as well. Email us if you're one of those folks so we can accommodate you.
Who is teaching morning classes during the last week of July while Ann's gone? We're very excited to offer several subs Zooming in from cities around the country! On Wednesday at 8:15am, First Degree Black Belt teacher Claudia Solomon is stepping in. On Friday at 8:15am, you'll have the opportunity to dance with First Degree Black Belt teacher Dr. Virgie Thorn. And on Saturday at 9am, our dear friend Black Belt Sandra Caldwell will be stepping in for Ann.
Wait...why are some classes on a break and not others? We wish we could keep our full schedule going through the month, but the reality is that August tends to be a low ebb time across the board for studios. Which we get -- people want to travel and enjoy the outdoors! Also functionally, Mel's day job doesn't make it possible for her to cover weekday morning classes...or Saturdays, when she usually collapses. Ha!
What does this mean if I want to come into the studio? All of Mel's classes will have an in-studio option, so if you want to dance in-person, just sign up. We are limiting our studio capacity right now to 10 students, and some weeknight classes have become popular, so do sign up if you intend to swing by.
As a bonus, on hot days the studio stays in the low 70s. That's one of the benefits of being underground. We have fans and two HEPA-filtered air purifiers, so come on down if you want to dance.
I have other questions. How can I reach you? The usual way: Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy August, and we hope to see you soon...whether in person or online!
