November Salsaton

These workshops always SELL OUT and we are selling fewer tickets this round so everyone has more space to dance- don't wait to get yours!

Salsaton is a fusion of Salsa and Reggaeton - Think 120 minutes of upbeat music- intricate hip-hop and fun Latin footwork breaks!

When fusing two styles- what could be better than fusing two power-house instructors. Together they bring over 40 years of dance expertise. Their upbeat personalities, passion for teaching and love of dance make them the perfect duo for collaborating!

Workshop is open level- Everyone will leave feeling inspired and challenged by both choreorgraphy and concepts.

Dance Therapy

It's a strange, confusing, disheartening and emotional time to be a woman (including anyone identifying as a woman) The past few weeks have left me drained and confused. 

There's only one way I know how to deal with these kinds of emotions- D A N C E. It's been my therapy and my emotional outlet for as long as I can remember. Not like the kind of performance dancing, not something for anyone else - the juicy, in your bones feeling is exactly what we all need. If you've never felt it for yourself- I want to show you how. 

Come for a night of sisterhood and movement- Emotional release and empowerment. 

Contemporary 7-8:15 PM

Studio Azul and Lily Christensen are THRILLED to be announcing their first ever Ladies Styling Training Team. Whether you are new to dancing, have some experience or have even been or are on performance teams this is an experience like nothing before.

If you struggle with turns, balance, styling, body movement, flexibility or even just don't know where to begin this is the solution! Join us for a 4 month season dedicated to training, positivity, becoming stronger and building female relationships. 

This team will be by application only and will be limited to TEN ladies maximum. This will be an experience like nothing you've ever tried.
