Laschwen Posted May 17, 2008 Report Share Posted May 17, 2008 With all the talk of class costs soaring just for the gasoline factor, I started doing some looking. I paused in my morning errands to chat with my tailor about a stitching problem and on my way found a Grand Opening going on in what was a quaint small town Main Street dress shop. The place has been turned into a dance studio. I went right in and asked if there was any hope of a ballet class for adults while noticing Belly Dance costumes on display...The lady said ...actually YES! They are having a Modern Ballet class for adults. I have never done that but I have seen it I'll take it. I have to save money on classes somehow. I did ask if they were hiring or could barter classes. Not so far the way they are set up financially. I had to ask. They put in new Bamboo floors and mirrors upstairs. They don't have a barre...yet. I will offer help with that as the railing they thought they might be able to use is barely above my knees. The place already has dressing rooms and rest rooms. They are using their downstairs area for Yoga, and hopefully Pilates they say, and kept the carpeting there for that. They have a variety of types of dance on the schedule already but are still taking on teachers as contractors. I am searching for a classical Ballet teacher too. Now I have a place I could put one if I find one. They offer Salsa and Swing Dance too. I may yet get the hubby there for that...after Adult Dance Camp. I am trying to stay focused until then. I never quite imagined that space would really work for a dance studio. It seems too small. It is actually narrow and deep, and has as much space to go across the floor as the smaller studios at my regular schools have, but no more than 2 could go at a time here. Part of their idea was to keep class sizes small. I almost put this in the Champagne lounge but as I haven't taken a class yet, May-be I should wait. They start the ballet this Thursday. I am considering the Belly Dancing too...... Quote Link to comment
