Appropriate clothing is required for all classes1
Dancewear Discount:
So, I just found out about this cool thing: by using a special code given to the Dance Workshop, our
students can get a 10% discount off of
their first order (using the key code,) If students use the code
on follow up orders, the studio gets credit.... hmmmm... what shall we do with it? Perhaps a studio
drawing or a student award? So many possibilities! Let me know what you'd like!
Our special code is: TP40519
