Class / Instructor updates:
*We are sad to announce Kelsie Middaugh will be leaving but are at the same time excited for her to continue her education journey as she moves to Colorado to peruse her masters degree. There will be a shift and transition of her classes to other instructors. We may through the summer offer a few less classes as Kelsie taught over 10 classes a week with us. But we hope to find classes for all our students that you enjoy just as much as learning from her. Her current classes will be split between Sihka, Tj, Sofia, returning instructor Amy Schweppe, and the newest instructor Sylvan Mitchell.
*Our pole fitness instructor Linda leaves every summer for adventures of her own and as so pole class will be on pause until she returns for the fall sessions. Ask for recommendations on classes that will help keep you up on the flexibility and strength required for pole in the meantime.
* We have added a new instructor this past session to The Last Carnival team, Jo Anne Zingo. She will be instructing Belly Dance for levels 1-3 as well as summer technique intensives. Check out our class instructors page to learn more about Jo Anne.
