Hey friends! Lux Mambo is becoming ✨STUDIO LUX✨.

Now that Stefan and I are settling into Austin, we're merging all our teaching, directing, performing, choreographing, social hosting, what-have-you business together under our Lux brand. We're currently operating out of our beautiful home studio, but our vision is to grow into a dedicated dance studio space and hire a team of instructors. We hope you'll grow with us!

We're already offering:
✨ Private lessons - online and in person! Visit our website at https://www.lux.dance/ to schedule.
✨ Group classes - online only. Check out our Events www.facebook.com/StudioLux.Dance/events section to sign up.

We're looking into launching in-person group classes in Austin soon. Stay tuned!

Bay Area folks, we plan to visit about once per month as things continue to reopen there 🤞. Our first visit is the week of MAY 16 and we will be available for private lessons in SF, San Mateo, and San Jose. DM us to get on our schedule!

XO,

Carolyn & Stefan
Thank you for an amazing night. It was really fun and we can't wait until the next one!

Folks are always asking us about the differences between Salsa On1 and On2, and how we know which one to dance. When social dancing together, we usually choose based on the genre and feel of the song. When dancing with others, often the choice is determined by the abilities/preferences of our partner. Many social dancers still can only dance one style/timing. We highly encourage any proficient dancer to learn both. Trust us, it’s more fun that way! Not only will you have more options to express the music, but you’ll have greater flexibility to dance with various partners and in more places around the world.

Wanna learn more? We offer weekly group classes in On1 and On2 (https://m.facebook.com/pg/StudioLux.Dance/events). We also offer affordable Private Instruction, where we can really geek out on rhythms and musicality or help you convert what you know in one style to the other. Just click “Book Now” at the top of our page.

(Disclaimer: These are generalities, of course, so there can be nuances and exceptions. 🤪)

[03/12/20]   Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and social distancing recommendations of the local health authorities, Lux Mambo Nights is cancelled until further notice. Stay tuned, we will be back when it’s safer again!

While for most young and healthy dancers catching the virus might not be a serious problem, following official recommendations is important to help protect the larger community we belong to. The Santa Clara County Public Health Department recommends that we all take assertive measures to inhibit or at least slow down the spread of the virus, allowing health care providers and government infrastructure the critical time they need to prepare and treat as many patients as possible.

Thank you for understanding!

❤️😷🤞🎶🕺🏼💃🏻🎧

* Avoid touching your eyes 👀, nose 👃, and mouth 👄.
