In this update:
It has been announced, as you might know, that we no longer need masks at places like the studio. Thus, you can keep wearing a mask if you wish, but you do not need to.
One More Week of Free Group Lessons
We are kind of still in February so we will run the free beginner lessons for one more week. Also, because I was still waiting to find out when COVID restrictions would be lifted, I have not had time to make solid alternative plans.
Last week there were some marks made on the floor. I am unable to work out exactly how they got there, but I have asked the teachers to ensure that people do not wear shoes that could mark the floor. For example, black rubber soled shoes. Please be mindful of the shoes you wear to class. Of course, dance shoes are always a wise move.
As mentioned above, I have not had the chance to organise plans since restrictions were recently lifted. Also, it is a time when it is hard to find staff. Thus, for now, the studio will run as it has, but we might have some new promo events and different classes coming up soon.
Our Man Palle
You have likely met or seen Palle – the venue and functions manager – about the studio. Palle has recently announced that he will be resigning for this role. He was always a great person to work with and much of your positive experience at Destine Dance can be attributed to him. I, and I am sure you, would like to wish him all the best with his future endeavours. This does also mean that the club will be looking for a new functions manager. If you know someone who might be interested, then let me know and I can get more details for you.
Looking for a boy
In an effort to boost our public recognition and brand, we are going to create a mini documentary of two kids learning dance. We thus need two kids who are interested in acting and performance who would want to be involved. We have the girl organised, but still need to find a boy. If you know a boy around 11-13 who is interested performance and would like a paid gig, then ask them to drop me a line. It would be 1 hour a week at the venue (likely a Monday night) for 5 to 6 weeks.
See you on the dance floor
