Will Monterey dance studios survive another closure? Sure they will. It's been quite a surge in demand for dance lessons in Monterey during the reopening in Monterey county. Wedding couples were planning their first dances, social dancing requests have been spiking, but yet another shut down slowed everything down. Good news as the vaccination has started and we might see a mirror ball light shining down on the dance floor soon. Being very optimistic could be as soon as the end of January to continiue reopening. Meanwhile we keep receiving many calls from poeple scheduling trial lessons in the near future. Stay optimistic, practice your dance steps if you're a returning dancer or keep watching popular dance movies to pick a few moves ;) Can't wait to see you all!
