September 26th, 2016

The light is on.

Last night, we lost one of our beloved "old timers." Dawn Hampton, was not only a dancer, but a musical performer at the Savoy Ballroom. Her musicality was legendary, as was her personality and spirit. The light is on. Thank you Dawn.

Quick reminder – Thriller starts

Monday, September 26 – that's tomorrow/tonight for those of you keeping score at home. Sure, there's a big reality tv show debut between the presidential candidates, but you'll retain far more sanity if you tune into our class at 7:45 p.m.

Here's the deal, our own MTV star Jeff Booth and internationally acclaimed (no, really, we're serious) instructor LaTasha Barnes will teach the original choreography from Micheal Jackson's classic music video "Thriller!" on Mondays from 7:45 – 9:15 at St. Stephen's of the Incarnate starting. It'll go through Monday 10/17. It's a well-spent $60 for new students and only $30 for those returning from previous years.

BONUS: We'll even give you the opp to perform your hard-earned choreography just in time for Hallow's Eve.

We'll get together per usual on Tuesday at 8 p.m. for lessons and 9 p.m. That's it! See you Monday!
