We’ve Moved to Alameda!

That’s right! We’ve got a brand new static location at Bridgehead Studio in gorgeous Alameda, California! It’s a convenient location, only one block from the Park Street Bridge. Our new studio features gorgeous hardwood floors, a cozy waiting area, and even a rooftop patio where parents can layout in the gorgeous California sunshine while their children dance! We are so very excited about this new location and are looking forward to creating new, beautiful memories in Alameda! We will be sprucing up the studio within the next few days, so stay tuned for more photos! In the meantime, check out the photo below of our new entrance!  (I just love how it sparkles.)

Dance Daze After-School Programs

If you’ve been skimming through our site for a while, you know that we often talk about how in addition to training pre-professional dancers at our static location in Hayward, we also go into schools and community centers to teach dance!  It’s one of our favorite things to do!  Check out the (very blurry) video below of Dance Daze classes for beginning dancers in an after-school program! We’ll be posting more videos in the coming weeks, so make sure to keep checking back for updates!

Thankful for Dance

thank you note for every language

We at Dance Daze are thankful for several things…

  1. We get to do what we love every single day by teaching dance.
  2. We have dedicated students who have fun learning with us.
  3. We get to enhance lives through arts education.

Because we are so inspired by the work that we do, and in honor of this month of gratitude, we will be offering discounted 1st Time Drop-In Classes! Starting today and through Monday, January 3rd, 2011, you can try your FIRST CLASS for only $10.00!

The regular price for a 1st Time Drop-In Class is $18.00, and you will still pay this price for a 2nd class if you do not enroll in the Dance Daze program after your first class.  So this is a really awesome deal!

THANK YOU to everyone who’s dropped in for classes with us so far, and the BIGGEST THANK YOU to our wonderful students and supportive families. We really appreciate you trusting us to educate you and your children in the art of dance!

Happy Halloween from Dance Daze!

I think all those years of being involved with Residential Life on college campuses got me slightly addicted to doing something festive and putting a personal touch on nearly every holiday!

Because of this, I thought Halloween would be the perfect opportunity to both promote Dance Daze and encourage healthy eating!  Last night, I gave out bags of fat-free mini pretzels to my trick-or-treaters, complete with my Dance Daze business cards attached!

Now, I’m not going to lie: I know kids go trick-or-treating to get CANDY, not fat-free snack packs, so I did give out candy as well.  I personally examined EACH piece of candy before placing a handful in individually packaged Ziploc® bags for each trick-or-treater! I can tell a few of the kids’ parents really appreciated this!  It was quick, efficient, sanitary, and ensured that each kid got about the same amount of candy.

I’m not sure if I’ll get any business from this promotional idea of mine, but I had lots of fun doing it, and I feel that if anything, the name Dance Daze might start to sound familiar to some kids and parents in my area.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
