Inside the studio with Paulina,

Well, we MADE IT! 2020 is in the rearview mirror and we have a brand new year ahead of us!

Dear Dance Family,

Sixteen years ago, on April 1, 2004, dance 101 was born. Three months earlier I cashed out my IRA ($40,000 - it was everything I had) and signed a lease on a small one room studio on Miami Circle in Buckhead. I had NO idea what I was getting myself into - I only had the dream of a beautiful studio that would touch others' lives as dance had touched mine. I was 46 at the time. I didn't know anything - not the first thing - about running a studio - much less how to create a concept that did not exist (there were no adult only studios at the time that welcomed inexperienced dancers). Paulina, in college back then, came up with the name Dance 101.

Thank you Linda!

So let’s get Atlanta ready, shall we…
