How are you?
Wow, what a month it has been! After 4 months of online classes we have finally re-opened the doors to our Studio in Sheffield. It has felt AMAZING and emotional for myself and all of your instructors to be back in the studio dancing with people after 19 weeks of dancing on our own behind the camera!
We’ve worked hard behind the scenes to make sure that our Studio feels safe and continues to be a place where you can escape from the world and ‘dance like no one is watching’ without thinking of anything else going on in the outside world. Thank you so much for all of your wonderful feedback from those of you who have been to classes at our Studio so far!
We are also excited that our ONLINE classes are here to stay, thank you so much to everyone who is continuing to ‘dance like no one is watching’ with us through the power of technology! We’ve even had some of you join us from your holidays abroad, woohoo- we’ve gone international!
Here are a few pics from the last few days at the Studio in Sheffield, it’s great to see your smiling faces again! Strike a pose ladies!
Before re-opening the studio to you wonderful ladies, we had our first instructor training day in person since before lockdown and it was so much fun to be dancing in the studio together for the first time in so long. Over the last few months we have been doing our instructor training/choreography days on zoom!
We have some very exciting new routines coming your way later this year, we can’t wait to share them with you!! Watch this space.
The power of new beginnings
The theme of this month’s blog is all about embracing new beginnings. If the last few months have taught me anything it’s that we cannot control everything that goes on around us, but we can control how we react to it. Change can be scary, as we all know, but maybe we should start to embrace change and celebrate it! I am so grateful, for example, that we took a leap of faith and began teaching online classes when we were forced to close our doors, because now it is an exciting new addition to our packages at ‘On Broadway’® Dance Fitness. It means that you can dance with us wherever you are in the world and allows us to continue spreading the joy of dance! The wonders of technology eh? I never thought I would be so grateful for technology as I am right now!
A new opportunity means a fresh start and all the wonderful possibilities new beginnings bring. As the old saying goes- when one door closes, another one opens. Sure, you might be nervous about what may come your way, but it’s time to stop looking behind you and embrace the exciting possibilities waiting for you on the other side of that comfort zone.
So, the bottom line is- Change is a GOOD thing! Embrace new beginnings. Celebrate changes in your life. Take the leap of faith out of your comfort zone, even when you feel the fear!
