We did it!

In 2018 we raised $6,000 towers our new studio. We truly appreciate your help. All donations went going directly towards a brand new wooden floor installed, a kitchenette, lighting, and shades. With your help we've turned our new venue into something beautiful. It really is like dancing Tango on Water.
