(atl) This is not a drill

Inside the studio with Paulina:

Well, we survived the severe weather yesterday but unfortunately not the terrible calls against us (The Dawgs) in the National Championship Game last night… that was ruff… I mean, rough. 

But today is a NEW day and with it comes exciting news. First, let’s talk Free Week… Dance 101's Free Week is an annual tradition dating back to 2004 (I know, don’t we look GREAT for our age) with the opening of our first studio on Miami Circle in Atlanta. Every January, we open our doors and a large number of classes to dancers and dance lovers alike who are curious about dance for exercise or for artistic development.

Classes are free, however it costs $10 to register for a pass. But as I hinted in the last 101, the $10 IS waived if you are on a monthly membership (this is the monthly auto deducted membership for 5, 10, 20 and Unlimited classes). Which by the way, if you’ve been thinking about a membership, now would be a good time to get on board… in addition to this perk, if you sign up this month you’ll get 1/2 off your first month. Exciting!

Skuuuuurt, back to Free Week… the dates are Monday January 15th - Sunday January 21st. All Introductory and “all level” classes (except MaddX) are free!

Yikes, that was long. Hope you guys are still with me! There’s always A LOT going on in January!

The Schedule:
Greece Lightning has returned and he’s going to kill me for using THIS picture haha. Welcome back Peter Poulos to dance 101! I’d imagine for most of you, Peter is a new face but for those of you who have been with us since the above mentioned Miami Circle days, he’s back!!! And with Peter, comes his signature upbeat, super fun Pop Jazz… fun fact… One of the first ever promotional posters I designed (yes, poster) was for Peter’s Pop Jazz class… I’d show it to you but good lord it’s terrible and I have a rep to protect haha.

Pop Jazz (beginner) Thursdays at 7:30pm debuting THIS Thursday. We also move (Greece) Lightning fast around here ha.

Join us in welcoming back the fabulous Peter Poulos! We know you've missed him! Peter's high energy, ultra cardio, kick a-- funky POP! jazz class was a 101 fav for many years! Now it's back and as sassy as ever. So here it is: 10 mins of serious warm up followed by 50 minutes of the best POP! jazz choreography you'll experience East of L.A.
