Highlights from our 2018 Dance Cruise

By | Events | No Comments

 

To the Students and Staff of Avant Garde,

There are simply not enough words to thank you all for joining us on another yet memorable Caribbean cruise. You set aside precious time to be part of this and for that we are grateful.

Who can forget traveling together, basking and swimming in the azure waters, shopping, enjoying the sites of Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, eating and laughing, group lessons, and dancing the nights away? Pictures and videos do not lie. Indeed, memories are made of this.

It is because of students and its great staff that Avant Garde continues to be a wonderful studio to be a part of. Life is great because of you all. We hope to continue meeting your expectations and beyond.

Gratefully,

Pinky, Nick, and Slava

PS. To reminisce, watch the video of our 2018 cruise on our website and Facebook which Ryan Jago has painstakingly created. Thank you, Ryan!
