Dance studio moves entirely online during COVID-19 pandemic

See the news about dance studios in San Diego during Covid-19. Life is about adaptation!!! Taking an activity like dance -- that requires space and hands-on adjustments -- from a bustling, in-person studio to a virtual online academy was something Neisha's Dance & Music Academy thought they would never have to do, but the company has successfully transitioned to live online instruction du...

Dance For 2 update

Hello Dancers,

We would like to present an idea to help Honor everyone in the dancing community and to make everyone feel united during this tough time.

Shawn would like to put everyone's name onto a Wall Of Frame. (Our play on the word Fame since we are all Dancers. :-D We want to keep a good Frame of mind during this time.) The names will make up our logo, Dance Headquarters. This mural will be added to one of the Main walls in the New Studio. You and everyone will be able to look at the mural and remember we were all in this together and you are a part of making it real.

How it works: Anyone who donates $100 will have their name added to the Wall Of Frame.

We have all been hit with this situation and understand not everyone can donate. We just want to keep the Dancing Dream Alive in the coolest dance studio ever built. With your help and our coming together we can make it to the finish line and open our doors when we are allowed to.

Please stay safe and we anxiously await when we can open our doors and Dance!! We can't wait to see everyone!!

How to make a donation:
