Important note: To ensure happy dancer feet and avoid injury, the July 12 classes will be held in the capoeira studio with the recently refurbished floor (instead of the larger studio). We are therefore limiting the number of dancers on the floor to 40 dancers. After that, we will do “one-in, one-out” admission. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment!
**For more dance opportunities in July, August and beyond, see the end of this email. We have some great classes in all sorts of Brazilian and Cuban dance taught by some fantastic guest artists. Please mark your calendars and show up to show your support!
