04/08/20 – CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:
As of March 23rd, non-essential businesses were required to close until June 10th and we are trying to hang on. Kianda and I have had to make some tough decisions regarding the Mambo Room and how it will survive this worldwide pandemic. The venue is temporarily closed, but classes have been moved online in order to keep the business alive and to provide some much needed distraction and positive energy for our loving dance community. We know these times are depressing in the solitude of quarantine, but we are here or you. The classes are live and you can interact with your instructor and each other. We are doing the best we can, but there are still things we need help with.
What can you do?
Our greatest concern is for our staff and instructors who rely on their paychecks to live and support their families month to month. Along with the Mambo Room in general, we want to make sure everyone makes it through to the other side. You can help us do this!
- Members: On behalf of all the staff and instructors we are asking please do not suspend your memberships. Live classes are now online to make up for what is lost from in person classes.
- Non Members: Online classes are available to you as well. If you have class packages, you may use your packages for online classes as well.
- Please support your favorite instructor by scheduling an in person or online private lesson. Email us dates and times so we may coordinate.
- For the front desk and support staff, Mambo Room is their only income. At this time, their income has been drastically decreased while they still have children and families to support. If you feel compelled to help them, please email us.
- Please share our classes with friends so they may also support the Mambo Room while getting quality instruction. This is a new opportunity for us to continue growing our dance community.
Paramount is the health and safely of you, your families and our staff. During this time please stay in touch with us and each other. If anyone needs anything please reach out. We as a community have helped each other through so much over theses years and we are honored to be part of this dance family.
