During this festive season I hope you can reconnect with loved ones and take time for yourself to rest, relax and recharge after another very challenging year.
Over the past several months we offered a solo latin group class at U of M that went quite well. Recreation Services at U of M will continue to offer group dance classes in the winter term (more information below).
In other news, I am excited to share that I've been appointed Associate Dean of Science (Student Experience), a position beginning March 1, 2022. In this leadership position I anticipate that I will not have much time for myself. As such, my dance and tai chi instruction will be taking a back-seat while I get a handle on the role. I will not be teaching any group classes at U of M this winter however I will continue with my private lessons on Saturdays.
Keep well and all the best to you and yours for 2022!
