"LOVE FOREVER" MUSIC VIDEO RELEASED!

A while back, a sweet couple (former students), David & Brittany Farkas, came to our Thursday venue at Westchester Elks (Playa Del Rey) to film a music video for a song from their new album! We were so thrilled to be a part of this music video project with our dance family! David & Brittany are a lovely couple; they are talented musicians as well. Thank you so much for this opportunity. Please enjoy the music video... fun-loving with a surprise is at the very end! It was a treat to get to dance to their beautiful song "Love Forever,", & share all the joy with everyone.

2014 DANCE DOWN MEMORY LANE!

* Please add our joint business e-mail to your contact/address book, to avoid Spam difficulties:  info@PhilAndMindiaDance.com  Please use this contact for any future communications.

* All of our classes are drop-in (some do run in a series). No partner needed for any of our classes. No prior dance experience needed for Beginner classes. Two left feet are welcomed; we will introduce you to your right foot! (Phil wanted credit for that last comment.)

* Once you have moved up from our Beginner level classes to Intermediate and then later Advanced, you are welcome to continue taking our Beginner classes for FREE! We want to encourage you to continue working on your basics; that is most important to develop a strong foundation. The best dancers usually are the ones who have worked on their basics for years. When you keep taking Beginner classes, you are also helping the new students to progress faster, since they get to rotate & dance with more experienced dancers.
