Arias Dance NYC 300 West 43rd St 5th Floor
Summer, Summer, Summertime!
July 2009
Letter from the Director

Dear Friends:

So much to report on! This summer has been great! The weather has been beautiful and classes have been growing and growing!

We have several "New" classes listed in this Newsletter that I think you will enjoy. I am also going to grow the "Latin Dance Program" even bigger. I just brought two new teachers on board but plan on continuing until I have five classes a week of Ballroom Dance.

We are also introducing a "Pilates Express". A 45 minutes long workout. Long enough so you can sneak out of the office, work out and get back before anyone notices you're gone!

Plus Jazz, Theatre Dance, Jumps and Turns and Hip Hop. Also a couple of FREE Classes for you to check out!

Come by and say hi!
