  1. So the classes WERE created for the moms who’ve been asking for them, BUT .. we have some very keen dads and other assorted disco bunny men, who’ll be strutting their manly stuff on our newly-renovated dance floors! We dare you to join us – we don’t want to miss that “slap-the-floor” move! It’s actually $20/class or $150 for a 10 class pass – but you’ve got a freebie!
