The year is coming to a close, our first, and it seems safe to say there will never be another quite like it. While the studio and our weekly dance, the St. Claude Social, existed before, our school and this particular combination of talents has only been around for a year. We've learned a lot over the last 12 months, like how to get heavy go-go platforms down from a loft while balancing on a ladder, who on staff is best suited to kill wayward roaches, where in town offers bottomless mimosas (shout out to Press St. Station), oh and how much water an HP printer can take on before breaking. You know, all of the important lessons one would associate with running a dance studio.
It has been just one year, but a very full year of working hard and playing hard to contribute as positively as we could to the swing dance world in New Orleans. From the organizations we've partnered with to the students and community members who continue to grace us with their presence, we are surrounded by thoughtful, fun, ridiculous people who we love to love and love to dance with. Thank you very much for being a part of this year. It has been deeply meaningful for us. We are so grateful to be here.
Here are a few highlights from our year 1:
Thank you for making such wonderful memories with us. See you in 2018!
