As we all know COVID has been hard on many of our small businesses, but CC & Co Once Complex did not stop dancing. Zoom classes have been offered since last year and have been a great way to keep everyone connected. Since their doors have opened back up Christy and her team have been actively keeping everyone safe with distancing and sanitizing in the rooms. Their goal for this year is to keep moving forward and growing the dance community. Keeping the dance community connected and teaching each other new techniques is how they will move forward with their students and future students education. Christy is so proud of her students being able to strengthen their skills at home and be ready to come back in person.
