Groove Tour 2013 New Orleans

// ]]>

We try to hold a “Groove Tour” every year for all our students, fans and friends. This is a one time chance to get together with all Dance Trance studios and enjoy a weekend in a fabulous location that includes a Dance Trance class! This year our destination spot is the French Quarter in New Orleans. We have lots of fun activities planned for this event. You will be able to meet up with the group or you can go out and do your own thing. It’s all about a good time and you know we got cha covered on that 😉

Bring a friend, two or three. We just hope to see you there. We are now booking for group rates at hotels in the Square.
