April 15, 2015 we officially embarked on a journey that would forever change our lives. This was the original Dancing Turtle. Some of you remember this space, danced here and created lasting memories in here. Enough support and love of what we were doing continued and then brought us to the current space we are in now.
We share this photo to let you know how ever the future shapes up...we adapt, we reinvent and use what we got to keep moving forward.
Thank you for being in our lives. Stay healthy, stay safe, & let us know you all are doing alright. 🐒😌 Thinking of you and sending our best.

Hello Dancing Turtle Family, Friends, & Students,

Due to the novel Covid-19 pandemic challenging our planet, the New Mexico State leaders, CDC, & WHO has advised a "Shelter in Place" with a non-determined end date. With our community's safety in mind, The Dancing Turtle Studio will be completing our 2020 Spring Season Breaking classes via distance learning on our website: Starting Sunday, April 6th, registered Spring Season students will be granted access to a password protected section of our studio's website. There will be dozens of online lessons guided by Check-It & some of our dedicated Dancing Turtle coaches for our students to follow. Throughout the upcoming weeks, we will also be adding many more videos that create, build, and compliment our studio's new Online Breaking Program.

Thank you for your patience & understanding. We look forward to sharing our lessons with all of you soon.

Check-It, Tanee, & Tasi
