Early Saturday morning Rocko Gentry (The Dancenter resident Bboy) left for an audition at Busch Gardens in Florida. Dancenter friends and family will miss his talents but we are glad that he has the opportunity to showcase his artistic abilities at Busch Gardens. We are proud of his accomplishments in the dance world. www.buschgardens.com
Miranda's Dancenter classmate, teachers, friends and family gathered at the Dancenter to shower her with lots of gifts and love today.
Miranda Hales and Chris Smith have decided on a name for their little guy that will arrive in late December. Beau Caden is expected to arrive soon after Christmas. He received lots of cuddly cloths and blankets to start the year off with. Watch the website for the big announcement and hopefully we can get a few pictures from Mommy.
The Dancenter had a wonderful turn out Saturday morning at the Zumbathon "Halloween Party In Pink" for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. We had 2 full hours of Zumba Fitness and lots of great costumes. Our first guest was Lady Gaga (Dana Keblish) who also won the raffle. Michelle & Ashley Chick did a great job representing the Dancenter Mother & Daughter Team. We made a lot of new friends and we hope they will all visit our Zumba Fitness classes again in the future. The Dancenter is planning it's next Zumbathon the week following New Years so we can get back on track after the holidays and drop those dreaded pounds. Zumba Fitness Classes meet every Monday, Wednesday & Thursday at 6pm and Saturday at 10am. We are planning to add additional class times so watch for the update soon.
