Save the Lumina Academy of Dance! organized by Belinda Shreckengost

I want to personally thank each and every Lumina student, Queer Latin Dance LA Family, Patille Dance studio parents, friends and family members who are supporting us in keeping our studio open. Over the years I’ve always said that I want people who come to Lumina to feel like they are coming to my home. To be comfortable, free and feel safe enough to let their guard down and join this family. I’m so proud that the dream of this beautiful, SAFE, welcoming space is a reality and I’m humbled and touched by your generosity in helping us to keep this HOME open. I’m so thankful and overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank you, thank you.
Be safe, be kind, protect each other and I can’t wait until we can all be together again. #arlenethesalsaqueen #luminaacademyofdance #patillesdancestudio #queerlatindancela

Hello Lumina and QLDLA students,
As we stated this weekend we have decided to stop all dance activities at Lumina until further notice. I’ve received a lot of messages asking about classes and rehearsals so I wanted to post once again that for now we are closed. We miss you all terribly but want to keep you and our staff safe.
I also want to thank everyone that has reached out and offered support in this uncertain time for small businesses like ours. It is so appreciated and I’m humbled by how wonderful our community is. Thank you and I’m counting the days till I see all of you again on the dance floor.
For now we take a break from live classes but not from dance. I’ll be doing some mini classes on line to keep your feet moving and so I don’t go crazy 😜 I’m also inviting some of our regular and guest instructors at Lumina to do the same. I’ll post a schedule on that soon. Love you all, stay safe and stay home if you can.

Update! Message from Lumina.
We are closing all our group classes until further notice. Due to Corona Virus Epidemic.
Please take care of yourself and each other. We will open once it’s safe to do so again. We love you all and remember that dancing has kept many of us happy for many years so play some music, dance at home and get ready to come back stronger than ever. If you guys have any questions or simply want to reach out please call us.

Hi all
Just wanted to let you all know that our social will be held as scheduled tonight. If you aren’t sick and are still ok with going out dancing I hope to see you there tonight to dance or simply to hang out and cheer on our lgbtq team who is performing tonight.
Also here’s the info we are providing to all students.
——-

Dear Dance Friends and Family,
With growing concerns and health warnings from city officials we wanted to send an update about our classes and events.
Lumina will for now stay open for group classes, private lessons, dance team rehearsals and for our social dances.
We are taking extra precautions to clean and sanitize the studio. We are requiring staff to wipe all public surfaces with disinfecting wipes before and after class. We ask that students use the hand sanitizer we provide upon arrival at class and once class ends.
If you are sick or have contact with higher risk people please stay home. If you are nervous about coming to a public place we understand and will see you when you feel safe to come back. Otherwise, if you want to dance, we welcome you.
Please know we'll continue to do our best to update our policies and share any class or event cancellations with everyone during this tough time!

On a personal note if you must stay home for now, once a day, for a few minutes turn off the news, put on some music, dance in your living room and fill your house with a little joy.

Stay Safe!
