A Very Lovely Announcement!

Hello all! If you’ve been following us on Facebook and Twitter or attending classes in the last few days, you no doubt have heard our big news already, but if you haven’t yet, drum roll please….

 

The Lovely Dozen are MOVING to a new location!

311 South 4th Street, Downtown Grand Forks!

 

You can view video of our grand announcement by clicking HERE.

We’re very excited to be making this move to a newer, more secure, and best of all, accessible building so that more people in our community can take advantage of our services! Speaking of which, stay tuned for some new and improved services to be rolling out as we get closer to the big move.  We can’t wait to share all of our exciting plans with you!

 

Also on the horizon for the Lovely Dozen…

The Zombiefest choreography is still underway at the general Middle Eastern Dance Class, even though we are sad to say we will no longer be performing at that event, we look forward to being able to perform the piece at a separate Halloween performance to be announced very soon!

Also, the new date for workshops with Amy Danielson has been tentatively set for the weekend of January 10th.  We look forward to being able to share more information in the coming weeks!

 

So stay tuned and thanks as always for supporting us!  Our hearts could not be more full or excited about all the awesomeness still to come!

Zombie Fest on the Horizon!

Zombie Fest on the Horizon!

Zombie Fest is fast approaching and it will be held on Saturday, October 4! Zombie Fest is a fun evening of live music, entertainment, zombie costumes and scary makeup of the undead! For the past few years we have performed a class routine at this event, and we are going to do the same thing again this year! If you are interested in performing and would like to learn the choreography, it will be taught at our Wednesday classes at 6:30 p.m., starting this week on September 3. All experience levels are more than welcome and we look forward to having you! It will be ghoulish and shimmytastic so stop on by the studio!

Change in Amy Danielson Workshop

You might have noticed that we have changed the date of our workshops with Amy Danielson. This is because we heard about a workshop event that is happening in Mankato, Minnesota the same weekend we had planned on having Amy with us in October. So, we decided to work in collaboration with this troupe, known as Satori Violet, so people can attend their workshops as well as ours at a later date in January. Satori Violet will be featuring the Hammer Sisters, Amy Danielson and other awesome instructors. So should you still desire to dance with The Lovely Dozen on the weekend of October 18 we will be in Mankato, but we encourage anyone who can make it to their workshops to attend. You can learn more about this event at http://www.satoriviolet.com/tribal-beat-dance-retreat-registration/.

Otherwise stay tuned for the Lovely Dozen Amy Danielson workshop registration to re-open on September 13 at our One-Year Studio Open House celebration! Folks attending the open house get first dibs on spots with Amy in January!

What a weekend! Aremi, Nixie and Amaya spent a fantastic weekend at Bohemian Grove!
