After 5 years in our own dojo, through no fault of our own we are having to relocate our home.

Our last class at our current location will be Thursday 30th August and until our new dojo is ready at Deanclough we will be carrying out our training at studio59 dance studios in the next mill where we are now, we have submitted change of use to the planning department and hopefully this will be granted by the 16th September so we can then get the electricians and builders in to carry out extensive work that is required to make this our permanent home. We are hoping the work will be completed and we can move into our new home by the end of October, in the meantime we start our first class at studio59 on Tuesday 4th September 6pm till 7pm, keep an eye out for class times to be confirmed next week
