Clear the calendar. Here we go:
We’ve got a social party on Friday, Aug. 11 at 8 p.m. What’s on the agenda? We’ve got social dancing, finger foods, wine, student performances, and pro performances. It’s always fun to watch your instructors and your friends and peers display the results of their hard work and passion on the dance floor.
We’ll take a slightly different competitive angle for our Jocks vs. Nerds Party with at the Alamo Heights studio. It also begins at 8 p.m. Come on out and meet more of your fellow students while we pick sides and compete.
While we’re talking competition, let us remind you of Texarama at the Westin Memorial in Houston.

It takes place Friday, Aug. 18, and Saturday, Aug. 19.
