Up and Running!

The mats arrived, with two hours to spare. So, on January 6, we had our first class. One student showed up, got her uniform, and away we went!

I've spent the first couple weeks getting used to the space, to the neighborhood (there's lots of noise and some sketchy characters right outside the front door), and to the drill of moving the mats in and out of the space every class day. All in all, though, the room is working out well.

In week 3 we signed up a second student, and now we are spreading the word. I'm reaching out to neighborhood listservs, the town's rec department, and am posting flyers on bulletin boards all over Decatur.

If you know someone who you think would enjoy training, send them along for a FREE CLASS!

Down to the Wire

The dojo mats are still not here! Only two more days until the first class, so it's getting down to the wire. Word from the vendor,, is that they arrived in the shipping company's warehouse on New Year's Eve, and will be delivered to me on Monday, tomorrow. Let's hope that it works out!

For now, it looks like there won't be storage at the Several Dancers Core space, our first location. That means I will have to haul them in and out of the building and store them here at our house for the foreseeable future. While the SDC space has lots of good qualities, this mat situation is just more impetus to graduate to our own permanent dojo space as soon as possible!
