Raq into the New Year!

Happy Holidays everyone!

We’ve been enjoying seeing the many folks taking advantage of our Holiday Specials and sporting the new Lovely Dozen hoodies around.  There’s just 2 more weeks of classes in December if you can believe it, then we’re off into the New Year!

Some updates to keep in mind during this time:

  • Steps in Time’s Fezziwig’s Ball event scheduled for tonight (December 19th) has been canceled – but stay tuned to hear about upcoming Steps in Time events for January, and don’t forget our Lovely Dozen Kids Day tomorrow (December 20th) from 1:30-3:00!
  • There will be NO CLASS at the studio Wednesday December 24th or Thursday December 25th due to the Christmas Holiday. Nor will there be class on New Year’s day, BUT…

We will be having a New Years Eve party in the studio Wednesday, December 31st starting at 6:30pm!  Come ring in the new year with one of our favorite Middle Eastern Pop Artists… TARKAN!  You can learn more about the event here:

Happy jingling and a safe, restful holiday to you all!

Celebrating our Small Business!

Fall really is flying by, and we’re excited for all that Winter has in store!

Small Business Saturday is this weekend, and we couldn’t be more pumped – come join us in the Studio from 10am to 5pm November 29th! We’ll have some amazing holiday specials, lovely new inventory (including Jewelry from Astral Rose Grove!) and goodies galore! The dance space will be open too, with extra hip scarves, if you want a break from your shopping to just jingle – come see what we’re all about!

Coming up in December we’ll have a Steps in Time Fezziwigs Ball Dec 19th, Kids Day Dec 20th, and holiday specials we’re waiting to announce until after our Small Business Saturday event too, so stay tuned for more details!

And Happy Thanksgiving!

An Extra Large Thanks! With a side of November Class Previews

We are so grateful to everyone who participated in our Eery Night of Bellydance show last weekend – whether you were onstage dancing with us, in the audience, or sent us messages letting us know you were there in spirit, we so appreciated all the support!  Turnout from the show was FANTASTIC, and we look forward to continuing to grow our local multicultural dance community!

A few tidbits of information for November worth putting out there:

First, the Lovely Dozen have a new mobile app that can be accessed by clicking HERE from your phone or tablet, and then selecting “save to home screen.”  App users will be able to access EXCLUSIVE class savings for the month of November.  From Morning Movement to Body Conditioning, Tribal and Fusion Styles to General Middle Eastern Dance* and beyond, there’s sure to be something for everyone at Lovely Dozen Studios. Be sure to check it all out!

*a general note, the Middle Eastern Dance Class WILL be meeting this Wednesday, but we will just be reviewing the basics this week before Amaya and Aremi kick off the new Beladi unit next week, so if you feel like taking some time to rest at home after the busy weekend, you won’t miss the new unit, but if you feel like your basics could use a refresher, come on down!

Second, the Lovely Dozen Drum Circle is coming back! Saturday, November 22nd, join us for an evening of rhythm and fun!  All ages and experience welcome – drums and treats will be provided!  Pay what you can at the door.  We’ll start at 7pm and play til we just can’t play no mo’!

And last but not least, we’re down to just 8 spots left in our upcoming January workshops with Amy Danielson, which you can learn more about HERE.  You don’t want to miss this one day, one of a kind event geared towards helping YOU uncover your own personal dance style – it’s going to be great!

So, as always, lots going on with the Lovely Dozen! We are busier than ever and giddy as can be about all that is to come – we can’t wait to share it all with you!

See you around!
